A mentorship in fashion is perfect for those passionate about the fashion world. This might include those interested in the art of designing their own clothing and accessories, as well as those interested in fashion writing and journalism. As an academic field of study, fashion design pulls from many disciplines, including history, business, illustration, and technology. As a practice, fashion design is a unique form of creative expression that intertwines with culture. 


A fashion mentorship might examine the intersection of art, design, textiles, and computer-aided design. Student projects can range from an investigation of fashion as communication, to a treatise on fashion as a tool of social equalization, to an original portfolio of designs or a handbook of sustainable fashion’s best practices.
