Career Exploration in the Fashion Industry: A Suggested Program Guide. Fashion Industry Series No. 1.
Fashion Inst. of Tech., New York, NY.
The career exploration guide is the first of a series of five interrelated program resource guides encompassing the various dimensions of the fashion industry. The series is intended to provide an information source for establishing, expanding, or evaluating secondary and adult vocational instructional programs related to the broad field of fashion. It presents an introduction to the different segments of the fashion field and suggestions for a career exploration program. Following an overview of educational objectives, suggestions for achieving them, and supporting services to be considered, the guide provides five resource modules, each organized according to: (1) major concepts, (2) behavioral objectives coordinated with exploratory experiences, (3) suggestions for evaluation, (4) information about the occupational fields within the fashion industry and (5) teaching resources listing reference materials, audiovisual aids and instructional supplies. The first module provides an overview of fashion industry careers, while the remaining four modules deal with four facets within the industry: fashion merchandising; apparel design and production; textile design and production; and drycleaning and laundering. Each module also contains a profile of occupations within its scope and lists titles, places of employment, and job responsibilities. A bibliography and list of representative trade associations are appended. (Author/MW)
