Specialize in women's fashion

Students acquire the pillars of fashion design adapted to women, the largest segment of the prêt-à-porter market. A designer in women's fashion must deliver collections that respond to avid demands for something new. Being able to create collections for specific demographic niches is primordial.

A career fit for the innovative

The latest trends in women's fashion are in one day and out the next. For this reason, a designer must constantly anticipate future trends and be inspired by them to create their latest designs.

A career in fashion design for women is for strong-willed and highly creative individuals.

As of now, at LaSalle College, students have the option to study in both French and English. It is our bilingual option.
