Fashion Design Careers and Internships

Following the industry schedule where several seasons are designed simultaneously, students in the Fashion Design Department are educated in all aspects of the design process for an easy transition into professional careers in the fashion industry.  Our students learn more than the skills needed to design and construct quality garments, they emerge from our program as polished professionals capable of meeting deadlines, working as part of an innovative team, and developing relevant designs for an ever-changing market.  Additionally, the department facilitates summer industry internships and networking opportunities for our students.  Otis Fashion alumni enter the design world as assistant designers, associate designers, illustrators, costume designers, textile designers, accessory designers, and product designers.  Some graduates opt to open their own clothing line immediately upon completing the program. 

Video features: some Otis Fashion alumni share their experience of working in N.Y.
