Through application of Lasell’s Connected Learning philosophy, Lasell’s fashion degrees offer students hands-on opportunities; fashion students are directly involved in fashion show productions as designers, producers, set designers, or stylists, both on and off campus. Our graduates pursue careers as fashion designers, technical designers, buyers, inventory planners, merchandisers, costume designers, visual merchandisers, and store managers for a variety of product categories.
