Fashion industry itself has changed dramatically and now an era of brands and m-commerce, and an ever-growing industry needs quality human resources to provide a backbone.
And because the design and retailing of fashion is a global phenomenon, it should come as no surprise that learning institutions around the world prepare graduates for careers in the international fashion industry. Training ranges from vocational to creative to theoretical and results in certificates and diplomas
Programs that offer certificates and diplomas tend to exist as part of vocational institutions, and curriculum is focused exclusively on preparing students for industry employment.
