What the Students Say:

"It's very fast paced, and the students are pretty tight knit. It might be a good idea to know some basic sewing and pattern-making from before hand."

"I did the fashion merchandising associate degree and it was awesome, the staff are passionate about their jobs, the course work is a great mixture of creative and business, and ultimately you get out of it what you put in."

The Bottom Line: A strong design program and innovative, high-tech textiles program are the highlights here. Many graduates have gone on to work for major names, including Dior, Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Alexander McQueen, L'Oreal, and Bruno Pieters.
