As part of the Visual Merchandising class, Fashion Management graduate certificate students visited Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga.
Nick Iozzo, Senior Director of Retail Innovation and Lead Generation at Oxford Properties Group, and his team met the students and gave them an exclusive tour of the mall, including a new Christmas pop-up store.
Nick and his team shared many interesting behind the scenes facts about Square One and how Oxford Properties manages their malls across Canada.
The trip was an eye-opening learning experience for students - a visit that bridged the gap between knowledge and application. Everyone enjoyed it and learned about brand positioning, market research, and pop-up stores. Many students commented that they will never look at the mall the same way again.
