Originality in fashion design results from a rigorous process of developing and editing ideas to solve specific design problems.
Fashion design students, working with professional faculty and guest design mentors, are trained in all aspects of the design process. Working in teams, they create clothing for several mentors simultaneously, emulating the fashion design studio, and following the industry's seasonal schedule. In 2012-13, among the outstanding professionals serving as mentors are Cynthia Vincent ('88), Claire Pettibone ('89), Billabong, Christopher Wicks, Halston with the Humane Society, Heather Brown ('04) for Urban Outfitters, EleVen by Venus Williams, Disney, Western Costume Company with Betsy Heimann, and Mary Jo Bruno.
