School of Fashion & Retail


Fashion Courses, Retail Courses

The School of Fashion Buying & Retail was opened by the institute five years ago in response to the big demand from large retailers for staff to be skilled and qualified in areas such as Fashion Buying, Merchandising and Retail Management & Retail Operations. 

CMI introduced Fashion Buying courses and Retail courses to satisfy this demand and there are currently two courses offered in this School; Fashion Buying & Merchandising Certificate course QQI Level 5 and the Retail Operations Management Diploma. 

The Fashion Buying & Merchandising Certificate course  is ideal for those wishing to become fashion planners, designers, fashion retailers, buyers, professional merchandisers  or anyone involved in fashion sales and marketing promotion.

 The Retail Management Diploma course is designed for those wishing to enter junior, assistant and senior management positions and teaches you how to deal with the challenges of a busy retail store from managing staff, to finance to stock, suppliers and operations.

 There are huge opportunities but also challenges in the Retail Sector in Ireland and the UK, due to any potential consequence of Brexit. Never before has it been as important for workers in the Retail sector to be qualified, so that you are prepared if there is any significant downturn in the Irish and UK economies. The CMI School of Fashion & Retail will prepare you for the challenges that lie ahead.

The school is based in fashionable South William Street, which is centrally located close to Grafton Street and Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre.
