FOCUS - Miami University's Fashion and Design Communications Program

Each summer, Miami University sends forty-five students to Florence, Italy under the direction of Dr. Mark Bernheim as part of a seven-week, study abroad workshop where they learn Fashion and Design Communication techniques.

This workshop also incorporates celebrity designers from the fashion competition program "Project Runway." The celebrity designers travel with the students and their visiting parents to the world-famous ''Polimoda'' Fashion Academy where they receive a day-long introduction to Fashion Communications.

Kathy Lehr learns how studying abroad -- in one of the most respected fashion capitols of the world -- helps students receive the necessary training in Fashion communications, marketing, and cultural studies that is required to become successful in their chosen field.
