"I would highly recommend the Fashion Marketing Certificate program. The classes are great and we gain valuable knowledge and are equipped to start a career in the fashion industry. The instructors encourage you to develop your creative talents and ideas while you learn applications that are very applicable to the real world of fashion. The atmosphere is fun and welcoming. My classmates have made my experience rewarding and memorable. Once I graduate from the Fashion Marketing program I will be ready to take on any challenges and opportunities that fashion industry has to offer."
Jasmyn Solberg, Fashion Marketing Student
The fashion landscape consistently changes moment by moment. Visual design and merchandizing are at the forefront of the retail and fashion industry with exponential growth in both areas. Students of the Fashion Institute’s eight month Fashion Marketing certificate program are always in demand. An essential part of the certificate program is the hands-on component of learning.
Annually our fashionistas stage and run a fashion show and are required to complete a valuable practicum placement. Graduates are well-trained and ready to face the diverse and demanding fashion industry.
Some of our other Fashion Marketing certificate graduates have gone on to work in the Bay, Banana Republic, Gap, Bridal stores and le Chateau, just to mention a few.
Olds College was a proud sponsor of the Fashion Olympics Paper Dress Competition. The competition features teams of 2 High School students in grade 11 or 12 who compete to design and create a winning dress out of paper products.
