Hey everyone! I’m majoring in graphic design this fall! I wanted to major in fashion, but the school i’m going to doesn’t offer it. I’m wondering if there are any graphic design majors, or anyone out there who can tell me what kind of careers I can get involving fashion with this major? I still want to be involved with fashion (it’s my dream) so any info. would help me a lot!! Thank you!! :):)

a lot of times, you can get employed to make graphics for shirts and things, also, after you finish graphic design and get a good job, you could get a little extra schooling and design fabrics. .

you could also help create advertisments and maybe work as an illustrator. Good luck!!

my cousin who is majoring in graphic design is currently working on starting his own t-shirt business. he does a lot of designs for the t-shirts themselves but he also does the logo and designs the website himself… so yeah doing graphic designs for clothes or even being paid to advertise for fashion companies or anything like that is definitely a possibility!

I’m a graphic designer as well! Although I don’t work with fashion at all… but it is an industry tied closely to design. There’s always advertisements, catalog layouts, websites, fashion magazines, photo retouching and plenty of other things i’m probably not thinking of.

Also, if your interested in doing fashion design classes maybe you could find another school that offers summer classes?

Anyway, just because your school doesn’t offer it, don’t let it slow you down! I’m sure you can work fashion into your projects. :)

I’m a graphic design major as well. I think everyone else has said what I was thinking, so I’ll just leave it at this: when you’re in the creative field, it’s great to have a good sense of fashion. I think employers and clients will be looking for it. Keep up with your style and it might help you in the future.

Im also a graphic design major. We had a fashion design course before but that was only for 4months with 1 session per week. I wish I had learned more about fashion especially sewing.
