Fashion Retail Marketing - Create and Manage a Virtual Fashion Business! 0.5 Elective Credit (Hannah Bierwagen) (1 section)

Students are challenged to open a fashion retail store in the best location for success. Students also manage all the tasks that lead to a successful fashion business - spotting trends, designing fashion items, buying fashion garments, and designing the store’s visual merchandising. To increase sales, students focus on social media and website marketing for their fashion business. Throughout the project, students consult the financial reports for their fashion business to determine what changes they should implement to increase their sales and profits. Advanced students, once they’ve mastered the intricacies of running a fashion retail store, have the option of opening a second store in the shopping mall. They can test their management and fashion business skills running two popular fashion stores in the same shopping center. Students pursue a cumulative profit goal as they run their business over several fashion seasons.
