Well I think it would depend on the college but if you were attending a fashion college, the major would be fashion design but a four-year or a community college might have it under a different name. A great fashion college for fashion design is (FIDM)The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in LA. The school has years and years of experience in the fashion industry and many famous fashion designers graduated from FIDM.
Fashion merchandisers are the connection between the designers and the general public. They have to decide 1-2 years and sometimes 3 years in advance what the seasons trends will be and what the retail stores they are working with will sell to the consumers. A great knowledge of retail sales and production timelines is a must!
