Senior Visual Presentation Students
at The High School of Fashion Industries
The Visual Merchandising department provides a unique hands-on educational experience unlike any other. Our curriculum is an unparalleled interdisciplinary program that prepares students to create displays and exhibitions from conceptualization through fabrication. Students are given a platform to innovate and create individually and in teams. Concept development, research, mood boards, renderings, shop construction of props, electronic media, lighting and time management are just a few of the areas that students focus on during their course of study. Students master the Adobe Illustrator software program. Our students participate in the designing and construction of the building’s window displays highlighting seasonal events and the Annual Fashion and Art Shows. Master classes with seasoned professionals and partnerships with iconic NYC stores like Barneys New York and Macy’s provide ample opportunities for learning beyond the classroom.
