This course has been offered as ADN492 during Spring 2013 and Spring 2014 with an average enrollment of 15 (including the 502 graduate section).  It is important in our Fibers program as we continue to develop our fashion focus within the undergraduate and graduate programs in Art+Design.  It also provides a valuable theory course for our thriving Design Studies program. Within this course, we will review the different global fashion capitals (New York, Paris, London, and Milan) and discuss the differences between each city and their specialty within the fashion industry.  We will also discuss the globalization of the fashion in regards to the production and business side of the fashion industry.
