Fashion Design | Houston Community College – HCC


The Fashion Design program prepares students for careers in fashion related fields. Creative studies in design fundamentals, fashion analysis, fashion history, textiles, color, and sketching, along with technical training in draping, pattern making, pattern grading, and clothing construction provide the training required for entry-level employment by the mass production ready-to-wear industry or for custom design business operations. 

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) allows students to earn only one AAS in Fashion Design. Students may choose from one of the following two specializations: General or Theatrical Costume Design.

In addition, please note that a student may only earn one Occupational Skills Award (OSA) per academic year.

TSI testing required prior to first enrollment for all AAS degrees and Level II certificates.
