Salt Lake Community College’s AAS degree in Fashion Design will prepare students for careers in the fashion industry and provide a solid foundation for students who want to continue their education at four-year institutions. Fundamentals of design, fashion illustration, textiles, and history of fashion, professional draping, patternmaking, and sewing techniques are among the many subjects students will learn as they take designs from concept to finished garment. This program will guide students to become not only a designer with their own creative vision but also a professional prepared to take their place in this exciting industry.
The Fashion Design Associate of Applied Science degree will prepare students for employment in the
fashion industry. In addition, many students study fashion design for personal enrichment as it enables them to design and
make their own custom clothing or perform alterations.
