Summa International Fashion is a broad, fully English-taught programme. A combination of the disciplines Junior stylist and Junior product manager fashion. You will graduate in one of these two fields, but with a broad basis.
As a stylist you make designs for a collection. As a product manager, you make sure that designs actually come into being. At school, you develop creative, technical, commercial and organisational skills. Subjects such as trend watching give you insight into fashion. Textile and product knowledge will help you increase your technical skills. You will work on your commercial and organisational talents in the areas of marketing, economics, management and purchasing. You will also learn to work with different computer programmes. Circular fashion - in the context of sustainability - and innovation are central to the programme.
You graduate as a Junior stylist or as a Junior product manager fashion. You can work for internationally oriented companies. If you wish to continue your studies you could move on to various English-taught higher professional education programmes at schools such as Amsterdam Fashion Institute, Styling academie Artemis, Saxion, or VIA (Denmark).
You follow lessons and receive guidance at school. In addition, you work on company projects and at companies.
Internships will be followed at internationally oriented companies in the Netherlands and - further on in programme - abroad. Each year of study usually consists of five lesson periods.
