"Fashion Industry: Underlying Systems" - Special Topics in Business Institutions
- Steven Peter Fischer
- University Hall 121 - Mo 6:30PM - 9:30PM
Overview of classFashion affects each member of society. It represents a daily opportunity to express one's persona. It also acts as a way to belong to a group. The fashion industry's underlying systems support that daily choice. Psychological & sociological, ethical, design & production, creative management and global trade systems will be addressed. Through a series of weekly readings, some videos, group discussions & presentations and visits from industry experts, this class will explore those systems that make it all possible. The class requires a weekly executive summary; a research/mid-term paper, and a final group project. The goal is to provide the student with knowledge of the underlying root causes for why fashion works the way it does - it is felt that by concentrating on that, a student is best prepared to either apply the knowledge with a fashion house, or apply the knowledge to other fields.
