Mentors 2019-2020

Mentors offer an assessment of Junior and Senior student work via critique of mentored projects during design development, sketch selection, and fittings.

In the course of the academic year, each student works with two different mentors who provide design direction.  The Junior direction is focused on casual and active sportswear in the moderately-priced market as well as always offering a sustainable design project, while seniors are given design direction for tailored garments, evening wear, couture, and costumes for the higher priced "designer" market. 

After receiving design direction from mentors, students engage in a vigorous process to define and clarify the conceptual basis of the design problem with weekly guidance from their faculty.   

This pedagogical approach embodies the department's teaching philosophy which advocates student learning through interaction with industry professionals. Additionally, it promotes a high degree of professionalism as well as achieving other stated department goals.
