This course introduces guidelines for professional practice. Students will analyze their personal and professional strengths through working directly with a fashion client, and establish clear strategies for their future career aspirations. Students will be provided with a brief, live or simulated, by an external partner (fashion company, organization or non-profit). Working in cross-disciplinary teams, they will conduct primary and secondary research; recognize, assess and analyze the company’s current and predicted issues and opportunities; and develop a strategy/solution for the brand partner. This could be for example rethinking the brand’s value proposition or identity; the creation of visual or creative content; or the implementation of new technology. This client-facing project will mimic a professional context allowing the students to work closely with the client through weekly ideation sessions. Students will build an online portfolio of their client work over the semester which they can develop as they start applying for roles in the fashion industry.

Open to: Associate degree in Fashion Marketing and Communication majors only. Pre-requisite(s) PAFC 1200 Core 2, PAFC 1201 Visual Communication Lab 2, and PAFC 1500 Futures: Fashion Communication. Co-requisite(s): PAFC 2100 Core 3.
