Award winning faculty with industry experience

The St. Kate's fashion program is a close-knit community, where strong relationships form between students and faculty due to our small class sizes. We place an emphasis on creating leaders in the fashion industry who are fashion innovators and change agents. Our students have the unique opportunity to partner with leading fashion brands in Minnesota on course projects and competitions, preparing them for successful careers upon graduation." – Jacqueline Parr, assistant professor
