ASU fashion program on the fast track for industry innovation

Just months into its first academic track at Arizona State University, the newly established fashion degree program is already looking like a powerhouse for fashion education.

Unfolding since last August in the School of Art in ASU’s Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts, the program offers a kaleidoscopic range of topics and experiences that has been drawing students from an array of disciplines to the newly renovated Fashion Studio on ASU’s Tempe campus.

“We are trying to put together a program that is responding to a changing fashion industry right now,” said Dennita Sewell, professor of practice and fashion director at a benefactor event for the Arizona Costume Institute (ACI) on March 26.

“We are striving to see that whatever happens in this space will lead to students getting jobs with this equipment and this program. You can manufacture Donna Karan’s line in this studio with this equipment,” Sewell told attendees gathered at the Fashion Studio for the ACI event.

She thanked Herberger Institute Dean Steven Tepper and School of Art Director Joanna Grabski for their support in designing the fashion program’s first year at ASU. Tepper and Grabski also heaped praise on Sewell  for her vision and thought leadership.
