THE UPCYCLED FASHION DESIGN PROGRAM GIVES STUDENTS WITH SOME DESIGN EXPERIENCE THE CHANCE TO CREATE SUSTAINABLE GARMENTS THAT ARE BOTH BEAUTIFUL AND ECO-FRIENDLY.

The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. One way for people to respond is to to learn how to create designs that use old clothes and textiles that would otherwise be thrown away. Participating in an upcycled fashion design movement allows me to be chic, edgy, original and ethical all at the same time.
— Lyn Slater of Accidental Icon

Our Instructors

Our team of educators include professionals from the industry who are committed to nurturing the next generation of designers. Our instructors for the fashion design program are patternmakers, costume designers, merchandisers, stylists, and fashion designers among many more. You’ll gain industry contacts just by attending class!  


Our Students

Many of our students come from backgrounds outside of fashion design and do not know where to begin this journey. That’s where we come in. We provide the support and help lead our students to achieving their goals. By the end of the program, they are amazed at how much they’ve accomplished in such a short amount of time.
