As a tool of the individual and of culture, clothing has meaning. Students explore the functional, social, and psychological aspects of clothing and learn how clothing provides more than just protection from the elements. Clothing offers comfort, helps people to fit in with peer groups, and encourages consumers to follow trends. The right clothes can boost self-image and confidence, too. Students also examine the fashion industry, as well as the influential role that marketing and advertising play in daily decisions of what to wear.
