FASHION ARTS AND BUSINESS

DIPLOMA PROGRAM

The Program

Unlike many fashion programs, Humber’s two-year Fashion Arts and Business diploma specializes in the business of fashion, not design. Become savvy in every aspect of the fashion industry—apparel, accessories, cosmetics—from a business, marketing, and event production perspective.

Given that fashion reaches into every corner of the world and influences almost every industry, you’ll gain a competitive career advantage by being able to function in several modes. You’ll apply what you learn in marketing, store operations, new venture development, and international trade.

Setting the Trend in Fashion Education

At Humber, you will be part of more than fabrics and patterns, you will be part of the transformation of how the exciting fashion industry is run from the latest trends in business and style. You'll learn everything from the general business of fashion to cosmetics, product knowledge, history and trend forecasting, sales and presentation, event planning, retail marketing to international trade and much more.

Work on Your Business Portfolio

Through real experience and practical assignments you’ll get a working portfolio to show employers. Business education includes:

  • Photo styling
  • Visual merchandising
  • Event production
  • Marketing and sales presentations

You’ll Experience

  • Participation in Toronto Fashion Week
  • Field trips to fashion institutes, retailers, associations
  • Interviews and evaluations by industry representatives
  • A sense of community at the Fashion Institute building

A Dynamic Career
