WLTZ First News - When most people hear “fashion design,” images of high-end, celebrity clothing lines come to mind. But fashion design encompasses a much broader scope. To help students understand and pursue these design careers, CEV Multimedia is collaborating with Texas Tech University on a specialized fashion design curriculum. Currently in production, the course will be released via online platform iCEV in early 2016.
"There's a definite need to expose students to a career in fashion because it often has the stereotype that you need to work for a well-known brand to find a job," said Rachel Anderson, Assistant Professor in the Apparel Design & Manufacturing program at Texas Tech University. "Fashion is designed and produced from all levels of apparel and accessories from Old Navy to Christian Dior. Students should appreciate that the fashion industry represents tremendous career opportunities, and iCEV gives them the resources they need to train for a career in fashion."
