Is your fashion sense catwalk worthy? Whether you’re interested in designing or merchandising, the road to the runway starts at Villa Maria College. From sewing, to pattern making, to buying, you’ll leave Villa with a lookbook-worthy portfolio.
“If it weren’t for Villa, I would not be in this great position in my life. There were always different events and functions to assist students in their future career path. For example, there were frequent seminars on building resumes or correct interview techniques and occasionally even chances to mingle and network with actual business professionals. This all contributed to my success and growth within my industry.” — Dylan Brawn, ’14, production manager at Proctor’s in Schenectady, NY and Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, NY.
