The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising engaged its Textile Design and Merchandise Product Development students to collaborate for a Topshop collection next year.
Melinda Parker, a Product development student on the Los Angeles Campus and project team leader, who currently works at Topshop, guided the group, provided feedback to her teammates and addressed any questions they had.
“The Topshop manager gave us a tour and talked about the background of the company,” she explained. “We also did a store visit to research trends and get more familiar with the brand.
I think the best part of the project was the end result,” Melinda added. “It was awesome seeing everything come together and look so good with the amazing prints the textile designers created.”
