Abstract

Many fashion-related programs require an introductory textiles course, no matter the career goals of the student. In addition to the introductory course, one program that teaches only merchandising and retailing offers a higher-level textile design course. Configuring this course necessitated meeting learning objectives while considering the needs and abilities of students with no design training. This presentation discussed the development of an appropriate curriculum of textile design for merchandising students and shared strategies intended for student engagement and knowledge acquisition.
