SCAD seeks a full-time professor to join the internationally recognized fashion program at its Savannah location.
In this position, you will use your passion for mentoring exceptional students to teach the history of fashion as well as the technical skills necessary for students to hone their abilities. The SCAD fashion program has a strong partnership with several top brands, including Chanel, Dior, YSL, and more, who send representatives to work with SCAD students. From these professional collaborations to the annual SCAD FASHION shows that feature curated undergraduate and graduate work for star-studded audiences, the SCAD fashion program is also the runway from which tomorrow’s designers launch their careers.
The successful candidate has extensive experience in fashion design, including womenswear, menswear, knitwear, contemporary, and denim, among others. Strong technical sewing, flat pattern cutting, and draping skills are vital to this role, as is knowledge of the manufacturing process. The candidate should be proficient in concept development and innovation, from 2D to 3D, and have a broad knowledge of collection development, textiles, and other materials used in creating a final product.

The city of Savannah’s inviting climate and a culturally rich downtown provide a living laboratory for the study of art and design, and a dynamically layered learning environment in which students, faculty, and staff flourish. This is your chance to work with students in a vibrant and entrepreneurial workplace that embraces innovation, creativity, and collaboration.
