Academy of Art University Helps Fashion Industry Boom

Fashion is the county’s fifth-largest industry, employing 68,500 people, according to a report commissioned by the Los Angeles Economic Development Committee. This industry has grown nearly 6% from 2010 to 2011, in part because of regional schools like Academy of Art University equipping high-quality independent local designers who, in turn, manufacture their products locally. “Our educational approach is to require the students to engage in active, direct, hands-on learning that results in the creation of actual work, whether it is a web-based graphic design, a sculpture or the latest in fashion,” said Sue Rowley, Academy of Art University’s Executive Vice President of Educational Services. “Students are always obtaining real-world experience.”
