Core Fashion Design
// Program Overview
26 Weeks | 20 Hours per week | 16 Students per Class
This 26-week Fashion Design program consists of in-depth theory, practical knowledge, additional open lab time and hands-on, creative projects. To ensure that your training is current and cutting edge, we’ve teamed up with top fashion designers from Alexander McQueen, Aritzia, Lululemon, Helly Hansen, Kit and Ace, and OAK+FORT, giving you access to some of the most design-oriented minds in the city. We asked these industry leaders what they’re looking for in recent graduates, and incorporated their wants and needs into an efficient 6-month design program. By the end of the program, you’ll showcase your debut collection to a live audience at the JCI Graduating Fashion Show.
The goal of this innovative, practical program is to provide the knowledge and skills to work as a designer with confidence and pride. Students will be able to identify, understand, and use the types of equipment, tools, software, and materials required to complete garment construction. JCI graduates have the ability to stand out as a designer with strong practical and technical skills. After only 6 months of study, students will complete a collection of garments to be featured in a fashion show.
