Apparel Technologies at Minneapolis College

The only program of its kind in Minnesota, Apparel Technologies offers technical design training for the Sewn Goods Industry. Its curriculum is designed to expose the student to processes and procedures of product development and manufacturing. The program offers both Diploma and AAS Degree pathways. At Apparel Technologies, students have access to state-of-the-art industrial equipment and a computer lab featuring CAD software for digital pattern design.

A Creative Challenge

As the capstone to Minneapolis College’s Apparel Technologies program, each graduating student is given the task to conceptualize and produce a collection of looks and present them at Apparel Technologies’ annual fashion show. The student designers are involved in every aspect of planning the production including deciding on a theme, casting models, choosing music and collaborating with photography and graphic design students helping to market the show.

With the advance of the Coronavirus pandemic and resulting restrictions, the fashion show was cancelled. Faced with limited sources for materials and supplies and working from their homes, the students have forged ahead with completing the construction of their collections. A parallel can be made to conditions designers faced during WW2. As a true testament to the creative spirit, the students, with their tenacity, have kept their dreams and goals intact.

The fashion industry has always reflected pivotal changes in the world, answering to the needs and desires of society. The designers represented here will go forward with their careers, adding fresh perspectives to continue the momentum.
