The article sought to document concerns of fashion learners regarding interpersonal relationship experiences of Technical University fashion learners during the Semester-Out Industrial Attachment (S-O IA) programme. It therefore adopted a cross-sectional descriptive survey design and used a semi-structured questionnaire to collect data from 199 third year HND Fashion learners from five (5) public Technical Universities. The study established that the interpersonal relationship experiences the respondents acquired during the S-O IA programme were significantly favourable albeit with some challenges. It was thus recommended that the Technical University Industrial Liaison Offices (TUILOs) establish a yearly pre and post S-O IA stakeholders’ seminar to discuss students’ concerns before and after the S-O I A programme.
