Graduates find positions worldwide with apparel manufacturers, design and fashion organizations, fiber companies, home furnishings manufacturers, and global sourcing firms, pursuing careers in line building, fabric sourcing, textile and apparel, retail private labels, product management, project design, fabric research and development, and color management.
Students harvest flax, the plant used to make linen, for the Farm-to-Fashion applied research project. We grow and harvest plants for natural dyes and fibers, we compost, and we demonstrate natural dyeing and sustainable agriculture. This experience changes how students think about textiles—and their future careers. The chemicals and processes used in textile production can harm the environment, and the industry is developing solutions. The students enter the industry with new attitudes, ideas, and the tools to change the world.
