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.
