Apparel Design & Manufacturing Program Honored for Second Year

Texas Tech University ranked among top five fashion schools in the Southwest.

Texas Tech University’s Apparel Design & Manufacturing (ADM) program, housed under the College of Human Sciences, was named among the top fashion schools in the southwest by Fashion-Schools.org.

Texas Tech’s program came in at fifth place on the “Top Ten Fashion Schools in the Southwest” list, which includes schools from Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado.

“The faculty is very dedicated to the success of the students and the program,” said Robin Robinson, new ADM program director and assistant professor in the department of design. “Our students are hard-working, creative and passionate about fashion design.”

The program allows students to participate in opportunities such as the TechStyle Fashion Show, fashion industry internships and creative design competitions. Robinson credits much of ADM’s success to her predecessor, Su Shin, an associate professor in the department of design.

Oklahoma State University, Colorado State University, the University of North Texas and University of Texas at Austin preceded Texas Tech in the ranking.
