Welcome to the Apparel Merchandising & Management (AMM) Virtual Tour
We learn everything about the fashion business
Cal Poly Pomona AMM students created this video about all the things we "learn by doing" about the fashion business. No other major in CA has all this, from design to production to supply chain!
Developing our own apparel lines – AM2
Seniors apply everything we’ve learned to create our own product lines. See what steps are necessary to accomplish that.
A commercial for our Bldg 45 Boutique
This is our commercial we did together to promote our current line. It really worked!
Working with machines and the latest technology
The department has machines (from textile analysis to cutting) CAD systems and an awesome system that lets you try your designs on an avatar of yourself!
Fashion Society’s Annual Fashion Show
Each spring we put on a major fashion show of hot LA-based lines as well as student creations. Cal Poly students were the catwalk models. Over 300 people came including influential industry people.
Our clubs put on events all year
The Fashion Society, AMMA Club and the AATCC SoCal Broncos put on all kinds of events during the year. We bring in fashion industry people from designers to stylists to talk about their careers. Our how-to workshops are fun for the whole campus.
Annual awards and competitions
Our students are very successful in receiving awards from industry and department competitions.
Successful Career & Department Events
Our Industry Advisory Board participates in Career Day and Networking events.
Field trips. London, Paris or the MAGIC Show anyone?
We go on all kinds of field trips together to companies and industry events like the MAGIC Show. We travel not only in LA but this year some of us went to London , Paris and Las Vegas.
