What Can You Do with a Fashion Merchandising Degree?

Often, when people hear “fashion merchandising degree,” they immediately think of fashion designers, but not all fashion merchandising majors go on to become fashion designers, in part because competition is quite keen for fashion designing jobs.

Many fashion merchandising majors go into retail, and many go into art and design. Others become buyers and merchandisers within the fashion industry. Some with an artful eye become visual merchandisers, creating the displays that keep potential buyers from walking by. Still others go into marketing or advertising. Some become copywriters, fashion writers, or fashion editors.

And some fashion merchandising majors dream big and open their own boutique, perhaps even featuring their own designs. This is an incredibly competitive market, however.

Jobs will be more plentiful in New York and California than in other areas of the country.
