The Fashion School Store

The Fashion School Store sells one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories made right here in Kent by faculty, students and alumni of the Fashion School.

The Fashion School Store (FSStore) was launched as the Fashion School's live retail laboratory in downtown Kent in the spring of 2012. This exciting boutique environment allows faculty and students to research and test design, production, buying, marketing, sales and planning models — while bringing unique merchandise designed by faculty, students and alumni to Northeast Ohio.
