Apparel, Retail Merchandising and Design students had the opportunity to learn about the many fashion industry opportunities in Chicago. Students learned about retailing and visual merchandising from professionals at Nordstrom, Burberry, and Macy’s. They got an inside look at Chicago’s exceptional fashion design and custom tailoring at the Chicago Fashion Incubator and Oxxford Clothes. Visits to American Girl Place and Trunk Club exposed them to new trends in experiential retailing and personal shopping. Students also got to tour Chicago landmarks such as Cloud Gate and the Willis Tower Skydeck, experience the city’s culinary treasures, and shop the Magnificent Mile.
