Please Note: Both the Vancouver Fashion District Program and the Fashion Design & Merchandising Career Preparation Program are offered at Hamber. The District program requires students to take 8 courses between grade 11 and 12 as well as 90-100 hours of work experience. These courses are scheduled on the same day allowing more time to develop advanced techniques in both construction and design. The required courses are MTXT11 and/or 12, Advanced Fashion Construction 12 (YVHE-2DADV), Fashion Design 12A (YVHE-2A), Fashion Design 12B (YVHE-2B), Fashion Design & Merchandising 12A (YVHE-2EFDM), Advanced Fashion Construction 12 part 2. The Fashion Career Preparation program requires a selection of fewer courses than the District program. Articulation is being sought with post-secondary fashion programs which will give these students some credits towards their post-secondary program. More details to follow.
