GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) You’ve been behind the scenes with Pamella DeVos at Fashion Week in New York City. Now the creative force behind Pamella Roland is back in West Michigan to inspire the next generation of designers: students in the Pamella Roland DeVos School of Fashion at Kendall College of Art and Design.
Fashion students used to have to go to New York or Los Angeles to break into the business, but now they can learn about the industry right in West Michigan. The BFA in Fashion Studies gives students the advantage of preparing for their careers with a full, four-year design program.
Kendall offers a unique opportunity for fashion design students. It’s called “3 + 1.” After three years of studies at Kendall, students can apply for the one-year Associate in Fashion Design program at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. This allows students to build on what they learn at Kendall to complete their education in the heart of the fashion industry.
