Our graduates work at world-renowned companies.

Concept Developer, Fashion Designer, Product Manager, Lifestyle Journalist, Retail Merchandiser or Creative Producer, these are just a few of the many job roles our alumni take on in the (international) fashion industry. Other graduates have chosen to explore their personal vision by building their own companies. You can find some of our successful alumni on this page.
