The training you need, when you need it, where you need it


Apparel is a large national industry with many design and manufacturing firms concentrated on the West Coast. Many global brands focus on technical performance apparel for outdoor sports and activities but hundreds of other firms are known internationally for premium fashion, bridal, children’s wear, undergarments and lingerie, swim suits, and footwear and accessories. Many exciting careers exist in this industry.
