Fashion Design Student Association

FDSA was created to help UGA students interested in a career in fashion design build their portfolios and resumes.

In addition, FDSA allows students the opportunity to develop the competence and skills needed to succeed in a fast-pace career in the fashion industry.

If you have a flair for fashion; if you have the ability to spot trends before your friends; if you have the aptitude for fashion design and/or fashion merchandising; if you have a knack for photography, journalism, or visual display, then become a member and invest your talent in the Fashion Design Student Association!

We are looking for people who have an interest in fashion or in being in the fashion industry and are very passionate and dedicated to being successful. If you are interested please come to our meeting.

FDSA was started by two inventive Fashion Merchandising students, but now encompasses men and women majoring in Advertising, Journalism, Business, Textile Design, Art, Fabric Design and Fashion Merchandising.

Fashion Shows

These fashion shows include original, designer clothing by our very own UGA student designers as well as guest fashion designers. The catwalk is the most important element in our public relations campaign. FDSA depends on quality models, and we promote bodies of all shapes and sizes!
