Fashion & Textiles

Fashion and textiles can take you farther than you imagined — with programs that reflect the realities of the fashion and retail world. Collaborate on industry-sponsored projects for clients like Macy’s, NASA, QVC, Target, Under Armour, Urban Outfitters and more. Learn about fashion and textiles from the inside out, because it’s more than just pretty clothing. It’s also about the people who make the fashion and textile industries run, evolve and progress. It’s the fabricators, suppliers, merchandisers, engineers, marketers and event planners — from concept to consumer and the marriage of fabric to frame.


Ocean Awakening

Collaboration is key to bringing any collection to life, just ask the textile and fashion students who brought the Ocean Awakening designs to life. Watch as they push each other to be their best selves and find that A-Ha! moment.

Study Textiles Abroad

In our Textile Design program you can study at an international textile school, or at one of the most famous textile museums in the world. If you study weave, knit, or print textiles, you can take part in a semester-long exchange program in Scotland.
