Tangible proof of the city's fast-expanding academic programs in fashion design fluttered down a catwalk Monday night at American University of Science and Technology's first fashion show, which was hosted at their campus in Ashrafieh.Over the past four years, both Notre-Dame University and AUST have answered market demand for more design specializations by creating fashion majors. In fall 2013, Lebanese American University together with bigwig fashion designer Elie Saab and the London College of Fashion also launched a four-year fashion design program. As the deficit of fashion education is filled by bachelor's programs, so grows the competition among them; something to look forward to, said Hala Habbal, chair of AUST's arts and design department.That was Rena Braidy's story until she switched out of her graphic design major into AUST's then-budding bachelor's degree in fashion.AUST, for example, collaborated with the fashion program at Polytechnico di Milano in order to structure its own curriculum.
