Magic Market Week in Las Vegas 2014.

Villa Maria College Fashion Design & Merchandising students headed to Las Vegas to experience Magic Market Week, one of the most prominent fashion conferences in the world, February 17-20.

Students on the trip learned about merchandising and buying, taking in presentations on global trend forecasting and “omni-channel” retail marketing. Heather Harris, a Villa Maria College Business Administration faculty member, led the trip to this unique and exciting opportunity.

Magic Market Week is the largest global marketplace for contemporary men’s and women’s apparel, footwear and sourcing, and the most comprehensive destination for fashion buyers and brands in the world. Every February and August, the industry gathers in Las Vegas for inspiration, connection, and to shop a portfolio of ten expertly merchandised and curated shows across every category, trend and price point.

A private, co-educational, Catholic college, Villa Maria offers students a unique experience to learn and grow with a culturally diverse student population and a growing baccalaureate culture that lives its values of truth, charity, and unity.
