A rewarding career that’s always in style.

For people with a great sense of style and a strong creative drive, this pathway can take you to amazing places.
If you dream about designing clothing or starting your own fashion line, you may want to check out Fashion Design, Manufacturing and Merchandising to see if it suits your style. On the other hand, if you see yourself designing stunning living spaces, Interior Design, Furnishings and Maintenance may be where you can see yourself. Studies in either will give you the knowledge and the experience you'll need to land an entry-level job in the designing industry...or to continue your education and upgrade your skills. No matter which path you choose, you could be designing a great career for yourself.
