Merchandising 3745: Product Line Development Library Guide

Management 3745: Product Line Development deals with the theory and practice of sewn products development. It includes technology applications and practical experience in product development for fashion influenced textile goods.

The Merchandising: Fashion and Interiors program prepares students for a broad range of careers related to the fashion and interiors industries. Merchandising is a specialized management function within these industries. Graduates find employment in manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of apparel, accessories, personal care products, home furnishings, home interiors goods, and other housing related products. In both fashion and interiors merchandising positions, planning, development and presentation of product lines for identified target markets with regard to price, assortment, style, and timing are the main activities. Some of the possible work activities merchandising graduates may find themselves engaged in are: attending market functions where styles and trends in the industry are showcased; making seasonal visits to wholesale markets, e.g., New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, High Point and Atlanta; managing the major functions of merchandising, i.e., analyzing influences on market trends, managing the movement of merchandise from concept to production to distribution; researcing and developing new products; planning and designing visual displays of merchandise; maintaining a showroom in a market center; or selling to clientele at trade shows or at their own location.
