Texas Tech’s program came in at fifth place on the “Top Ten Fashion Schools in the Southwest” list, which includes schools from Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado.
“The faculty is very dedicated to the success of the students and the program,” said Robin Robinson, new ADM program director and assistant professor in the department of design. “Our students are hard-working, creative and passionate about fashion design.”
The program allows students to participate in opportunities such as the TechStyle Fashion Show, fashion industry internships and creative design competitions. Robinson credits much of ADM’s success to her predecessor, Su Shin, an associate professor in the department of design.
