Why I chose my major

Fashion has always been an integral part of my identity as I firmly believe that the garments and accessories that I choose to wear could inspire an alternative form of artistic outlet. To me, fashion is an art that can be freely manipulated, and therefore, I strive to become an artist who can visually connect with others via the moods, emotions and stylistic flair elicited from the dress itself. This major of fashion merchandising not only serves as a stepping stone to the realm of fashion but also incorporates a business perspective applicable in the real world. As part of FACS, fashion merchandising guides my ultimate goal of yielding effective service to consumers and enhancing their wellbeing.

What I like most about FACS

What I love most about the FACS community is the engaged and diverse culture that embraces collaboration, positivity and professional development. Throughout my undergraduate career, I gained valuable insights from the efforts of my professors and peers to sustain such a dynamic learning environment. The FACS community is truly like none other. We are indeed a family.

Post-graduation plans

I plan to seek an entry-level career in the fashion industry by shadowing buyers and preparing to become an assistant buyer. My ultimate purpose lies in making an impact in the realm of fashion by closely adhering to sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
