Linda Lee – VCU Fashion Design & Merchandising
Virginia Commonwealth University’s Department of Fashion Design and Merchandising is a proud part of the #1 Public Art Schools in the nation.
Currently, the Department of Fashion Design and Merchandising has over 300 students enrolled in two educational tracks: Fashion Design (Bachelor of Fine Arts), Fashion Merchandising (Bachelor of Arts). The educational philosophy of the Department of Fashion is to provide students with the practical application of both knowledge and skills emphasizing analytic abilities, creative problem solving, and a global perspective.
Each Spring VCU Fashion students create and produce our annual juried fashion show. Through the hard work of our students and faculty, approximately 120 of the very best student-produced garments appear on the runway. This showcase of student work is but one of many examples of the quality of the education the students receive and the commitment of the faculty to the success of our students. It is a partnership of support, mutual respect and a commitment to excellence.
