By: Kat Sutton

For more than 35 years, Vancouver College of Art and Design (VCAD) has been the premiere fashion institute of design in Vancouver. VCAD offers a fashion marketing and merchandising program, a fashion design program, and a pattern making for fashion program.

VCAD has helped many fashion hopefuls on their road to become fashion designers.  VCAD students are prepared to enter into a variety of rewarding art and design careers like tailors, fashion stylists & more.  VCAD is always a few steps ahead of other fashion design colleges and offers brilliantly textured fashion design courses that include fashion design drawing, marketing and pattern making. 


VCAD stands out among other fashion design schools in Canada because of the real-world relevance of its fashion design courses, its concentrated program timelines, and its lower tuition costs. VCAD keeps costs lower, without sacrificing the quality of education, by eliminating unnecessary and redundant courses and focusing on curriculum that will lead to job-ready graduates. Each program of study at VCAD follows a career-focused curriculum that combines theoretical learning with hands-on training so students develop the skills needed to succeed in their chosen careers.


VCAD’s Fashion Design programs teach students to thrive in the fast-paced fashion industry. VCAD also has fashion marketing and merchandising programs.  Marketing and merchandising graduates will be prepared to pursue fashion jobs in areas like public relations, fashion marketing, fashion merchandising, fashion retailing, event and promotions planning, or as a fashion writer. Fashion design graduates will be ready to pursue fashion industry jobs such as fashion stylists, junior fashion designers, pattern makers (pattern making for fashion design),  marketing representatives, or visual display coordinators and purchasers.

Applying to a fashion design college like VCAD is easy and convenient. Prospective students can apply online or request information from an academic advisor via phone or online contact form.
