Students in the Textile Development and Marketing program will have access to color management tools for their design projects, while getting more hands-on experience that helps to prepare them for careers in the fashion and textiles industries. The center features a flip-through display that re-creates the 4,320 hues of Archroma’s color management system, Color Atlas, on one wall. Students also have access to a complete six-volume library that includes detachable fabric swatches.
