This narrative depicts the changes I made to the company practices over a 5-month period that increased both our sales and consumer interactions.

Fashion Product & Brand Management

Ready-to-Wear Project

Fashion Product & Brand Management depicts the difference between Ready-to-Wear clothing and Couture clothing. In my Ready-to-Wear Project, my group and I analyzed a newer and lesser-known brand, TOVE Studio. Through our research, we developed information based on their historical data, milestones, product categories, and current target market in order to understand and predict their competitors and ideal clientele. We were also able to perform a SWOT analysis through this process.

Fashion Product & Brand Management

Fashion Trend Analysis

In this assignment, my group and I worked to develop a Fashion Trend Analysis for the upcoming Fall/Winter season.

Global Sourcing Apparel

Business Simulations

Global Sourcing Apparel taught me how companies consider and develop their shipping and sourcing methods. It emphasized the importance of Consumer Social Responsibility, global sustainability, and pricing. In class, my group and I worked on business simulations for our self-made company. We then developed thorough descriptions of how our company would function in terms of our product, our shipping, and our standards.

Trend Analysis & Forecasting

Trend Book

Trend Analysis & Forecasting developed my skills of discovering, analyzing, and interpreting past and future trends. In my Trend Book, my group and I worked throughout the semester to forecast and develop future trends. We then turned out semester-long work into a finalized Trend Book that presents itself as a magazine or editorial. This project includes the materials, colors, textures, silhouettes, and styles of the upcoming season as well as a featured emerging designer in the industry.

Retail Apparel & Textiles

Omnichannel Retailing Project

Retail Apparel & Textiles taught me how retail companies functioned as a whole.

Through this we were able to thoroughly analyze our given target market, research  omnichannel retail strategies, and understand consumer purchasing habits.

Retail Planning & Buying

6 Month Buying Project

Retail Planning & Buying functioned as a source for the mathematics and buying strategies utilized in the fashion industry. In my 6 Month Buying Plan, my partner and I worked to develop line, size, color, and pattern distributions and an assortment plan for our given budget. This gave me insight on what a career in the buying industry of fashion would be like.
