"This past summer I took part in a two week trip to France with the Fashion department. I can honestly say I was able to use everything I have learned in my past 3 years at Lasell while studying and traveling there. Getting to see the city, culture, and how the French approach fashion was one of the best Connected Learning experiences."
"Two of my favorite classes here at Lasell were Visual Promotion and Fashion Promotion. Visual Promotion was completely hands on, building window and table top displays. I really enjoyed being creative with all of the different types of displays. Fashion Promotion is a class focused on the production of Lasell's annual Fashion Show. I loved this class because again it was so hands on, allowing us to actually work backstage at the fashion show dressing, producing and managing the whole show."
