 WELCOME to the guide for Fashion Design and Merchandising...

I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for information on Fashion Design and Merchandising. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback  from students and faculty.

I am available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research.

The library has reported the problem we have from time to time with accessing resources using INTERNET EXPLORER, and we are working with our vendor to solve it.
