DEC - Fashion, Arts & Design | 571.A0 | Men's Fashion Design

Who says tailor says classic. Who says classic says timeless. Based on the pillars of fashion design, students learn the technical skills of a tailor-designer. Those very skills are what made such designs as the three-piece suit and the Chanel suit stand the test of time.

More technical, more robust, garments designed by a designer for men’s fashion are made to last. With this training, one can even cross over to women’s fashion—haute couture trench coats and suits like those of Chanel, Yves St-Laurent and Dior can testify.

Graduates are trained in a traditional and timeless trade. You may choose to specialize in men’s fashion as of the third semester of your DEC in Fashion Design.
