Fashion

Whether you are new to the fashion industry or have been sewing since you were a child, VCC fashion has the courses and programs for you.

Our fashion design & production diploma mimics the real-world fashion industry. Experience a fast paced production process while learning fundamental skills and the use of industry standard software such as Illustrator and Gerber CAD. The self-directed garment project is a an opportunity to hone in on your craft and personal sartorial interests.

The fashion design & production certificate is the only part-time fashion design program in Canada. The emphasis is on technical skills, creativity, and a fast paced production process. 

Our fashion merchandising associate certificate is a one year program that prepares you for the business of fashion through hands on experience and knowledge of fashion fundamentals and theory. 

Non-credit courses are the place to test the fashion waters, upgrade your skills, and develop the required elements for your design school portfolio.

All programs are taught by our instructors that are experienced in both the industry and classroom.

VCC simply offers the best value for learning all you need to know to work in the fashion industry.
