ARMD students embarked on a study tour to Minneapolis where they got a closer look into retail, buying and visual merchandising at various stores including Duluth Trading Company, Evereve and Anthropologie. They learned about careers in the TV home shopping and online retail format at Evine headquarters with a behind-the-scenes tour of the studio. The group explored career paths in product development with visits to Creative Apparel Concepts, Merchology and the Product Design and Development team at Target. Students also enjoyed a dinner panel with alumni who live and work in the city, and they even got to see the musical Cabaret at The Orpheum Theater to experience a bit of downtown Minneapolis culture.
