Join SCAD as a full-time professor of fashion at the university’s Hong Kong location. SCAD is the runway from which tomorrow’s designers launch their careers – where stars of the fashion world visit and work with students, and where every aspect of the program is deeply connected to the fashion industry.

The internationally recognized SCAD fashion program educates students in the technical aspects, skills and history of fashion while offering opportunities to work one-on-one with top industry professionals. Global media, including The New York Times and Women’s Wear Daily, attend and cover the annual SCAD Fashion Show, a juried collection of undergraduate and graduate work.

From skyscrapers to sacred temples, white-sand beaches to mountain views, Hong Kong’s creative scene spreads across the region. Providing the perfect backdrop for teaching and learning, the vibrant island city of Hong Kong thrives as a global capital of entertainment, digital media, fashion and design.

The ideal candidate for this role has extensive knowledge and experience in fashion design, including womenswear, menswear, knitwear and denim, as well as experience with fashion textile and surface manipulation, which is crucial to the development of student-designed textiles. You should have strong skills in fashion illustration, design, concept development and innovation.

The ability to develop products from 2-D concept to 3-D design, proficiency in CAD fashion-design software and production, and broad knowledge of the elements of developing a collection and the creative uses of materials and textiles are required. Candidates are proven leaders and display a passion for mentoring exceptional students. Knowledge of the manufacturing process and technical design expertise in specialized areas like draping, patternmaking and garment construction are preferred.

Requirements:

  • Terminal degree or its equivalent in fashion or a related field
  • University-level teaching experience preferred
