Follow your passion

SCAD offers tremendous opportunities for personal career growth, and many of our students find off-campus venues to showcase their work as well. SCAD fashion students have partnered with ELLE magazine on FASHION | NEXT, when the magazine showcased their work in a Fall Fashion Week runway show at Lincoln Center. Our students have also worked on projects through the SCAD Collaborative Learning Center, partnering with Dressage, Kohl's, Microsoft, Dylan's Candy Bar and others.
