University and College Fashion Programs Go High-Tech with WindowsWear PRO

University faculty and students are using WindowsWear PRO as a new teaching resource to prepare students for a future in the fashion and merchandising industries.

New York, NY (PRWEB) March 19, 2014

Universities and colleges across the world are subscribing to WindowsWear PRO (http://pro.windowswear.com), the only subscription service that provides trends and data analysis that focuses on the multi-billion retail fashion window display industry. The service is quickly becoming a favorite teaching tool for academia.

“Professors value WindowsWear PRO as an innovative and engaging platform for fashion-and merchandising-related curriculums that want to be high-tech and base their curriculum on what’s current in the market,” says Jon Harari, CEO & Co-Founder of WindowsWear. “The service provides students and faculty with access to a database that is kept up-to-date with over 25,000 of the world’s fashion window displays and analyzes both the retail displays themselves and the fashion on display.”

Professors use WindowsWear PRO for in-class lectures to foster discussion on the latest trends. In addition to amazingly rich visual imagery and data, the subscription provides trend analysis and reporting used by the world’s leading professionals. Schools have also been able to integrate the service directly into their course work posted on Blackboard. Schools also value WindowsWear PRO because of its ability to help students find internships and jobs.

“University professors view WindowsWear PRO not only as a window design trend subscription service, but also as an opportunity for their students to network in the industry,” says Mike Niemtzow, President & CFO of WindowsWear. “WindowsWear PRO shares student-generated analysis on the platform allowing students to use PRO to gain access to companies and vendors that want to hire them. One of our goals is to connect students with great brands and help them land jobs.”

Berkeley College in New York City, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Sheridan College in Canada are just some of the schools subscribed to WindowsWear PRO.

“We teach our students to use WindowsWear PRO as a WGSN for their specific area of study,” says Professor Smith, a visual merchandising professor from Berkeley College. “We like the service because it is cheaper, as well as more in-depth and oriented towards our focus on visual merchandising and window display design.”

“As a visual merchandising student, I find WindowsWear PRO to be a valuable resource to have in my studies. It has a large database, is easy to use, and helps us visually learn about what is current in the fashion industry,” says, Ms. Jones, a student at Sheridan College.

Schools such as the Fashion Institute of Technology and LIM College in New York City regularly invite WindowsWear to participate in speaking engagements for faculty and students. At the most recent presentation to FIT’s Visual Merchandising Group, the President of WindowsWear asked if any students are interested in interning with WindowsWear – nearly all 100 hands went up. WindowsWear PRO is more than a subscription as the company loves to engage with faculty and students and share its experience as a fashion-technology company on the business side of fashion.
