Fashion designers and marketing professionals often combine fashion degree programs with a marketing degree to take their careers in the direction of fashion merchandising. You can complete a fashion design degree; work in the trade for several years, and return to earn an online fashion marketing degree. Often, fashion merchandisers enroll in college programs in fashion management or marketing to advance in their professions. Fashion marketers are employed by large commercial department stores; smaller retain chains, or expensive fashion boutiques. You may be asked to manage or promote sales, special shows and exhibits, or run a fashion marketing campaign.
