Abstract

Aspects of professional attire/dress and its influence have been examined in both the educational and nonacademic settings, suggesting the importance of appearance management in the work environment (Okoro & Washington, 2011; Cardon & Okoro, 2009). Furthermore, there has been much discourse on pedagogical aspects of teaching professionalism, including what is usually deemed ‘appropriate’ for one’s profession. However, our literature review suggests a gap in research addressing what and how college students entering the general apparel and textiles industries should wear to internships and networking events. For the last three years, I have been teaching a 300 level course focusing on the creating, marketing, manufacturing and retailing of textiles/apparel/home fashion goods; the business of fashion.
