Choosing Between A Denver Fashion Design Major And A Denver Fashion Management Major

Author : William Hauselberg

The mile-high city not only offers beautiful surroundings and a vibrant social scene, but also a selection of fashion school options, making the city a great place to earn a fashion degree. Denver design school is a great way to explore the creative side of the style world and the tough marketing choices that are part of the business of fashion.

Choosing Between Design and Management

Attempting to choose between a fashion design major and a fashion management major? A few characteristics are shared by both. A passion for all things fashion is probably the best characteristic for prospective students to have. Whether you are more focused on the design end or the marketing end of the equation, it is important to find inspiration in the present and up-and-coming trends, and understand what makes a look classic. By paying attention and acting on your own creativity you can craft a fresh, personal perspective. Also, students who have patience and an eye for detail do well in these majors. Building a business or a look, it takes time to make it work.

A fashion design major at a Denver design school gets to be involved in the hands-on creation of garments. An original idea for a garment is not enough; it takes technical skill to turn concept into clothing. In your classes, you will train your fashion eye and learn to navigate the entire process. Sketching and software programs help your plans move onto paper. You also learn pattern making, sewing, fabrics, draping and how to compose a collection.

On the other hand, a fashion management major takes on the business side of the industry. Instead of creating apparel, a Denver fashion management school student learns the behind-the-scenes components that make the apparel both sellable and profitable. This degree looks similar to a business degree in that courses may include accounting, business ownership, branding, marketing and media planning. Students are exposed to the product side of the industry, which includes learning what the customer wants and is willing to pay, all the way through to the other end of the spectrum: the buyer's market, from wholesaling to import/export markets. Some classes teach the design elements like color theory and textiles, with this balance students gain a fashion perspective with a business back bone.
