What the Students Say

"Not a good choice if you aren't serious about your career in fashion."

"Make sure to have a well put together portfolio."

The Bottom Line: With a post-graduate employment rate of 89%, Pratt is a great choice if you want to study fashion but would like to study other applied arts as well. And it's one of the few design programs which offers electives in fashion editorial/magazine publishing. There is also a focus on sustainable design, which is a facet of the business that students must now understand in order to produce clothes properly and efficiently.
