What the Students Say:
"It's interdisciplinary so if you aren't a 100% sure, it's probably one of the most fluid with an elective change."
"The fashion program is very avant garde. If you're looking to design pure ready to wear, don't come to SAIC."
The Bottom Line: With a non-traditional fashion design program, Georgia O’Keefe’s alma mater has a serious art and design pedigree.
