Hi Khoipond!
If you go to NY in june to visit Parson's you should visit FIT too. Maybe there are some others fashion school in NY but i don't know them. Good luck in your search!

What are the best fashion schools in California?
When i researched in the Net, it claimed that American Intercontinental University and Academy or Arts in San Fransisco are the best fashion schools, but from what i hear from friends, i hear that Otis is good from around people. Also i heard that FIDM isnt that great. Seriously, whats up world? What are the best fashion schools in California that will also get you into an internship right after fashion college?

i've been doing some research on fashion schools and it is listed that FIT and PARSON is around the last thirty fashion schools. So, someone say something! Is American Intercontinental University in London really the best fashion school?

the thing with parsons and otis is that they would rather not see fashion sketches, they want to life drawing and work that doesn't relate to what you plan on majoring. life drawing, observational drawings are the most important thing in your portfolio. parsons requires you to also submit a home test in addition to your portfolio to get in.

in my portfolio that got me accepted to parsons and otis, i included some photography, 3d design, 2d design, life drawing and painting.

FIT is the only school of these three that would actually require you to do fashion sketches.
Are you sure Otis is the best fashion school In los angeles?

I am currently attending FIT on the last few weeks of my 2nd year. If you have any questions about dorming/application process or general questions just toss them my way. Unfortunately FMM is one of the majors I really don't know much about. Mostly the students I know from that major just say it's a lot of math for homework. I, myself am majoring in Fashion Illustration as a sub major of Illustration. I also workstudy in the Res Life office so if you have questions relating to that stuff.

Just a general note, you won't have to worry about the new dorms at FIT if you're an incoming freshman, you'll be at the old dorms across the street from the school. The new dorms are expected to open in the Fall to fit all the upper classmen but that's a very very optimistic deadline.

I wrote about this school earlier in the thread! I was looking at it to study abroad at, but not for design. I'd like input on it too....

If you want to major in Fashion merchandising is a portfolio important for applications?

i think you're making a mistake, but until you get to fidm, and want to transfer out you'll see why.

save your self some money, if you want to transfer into those schools, go to a school whose credit do transfer(fidm credits don't transfer) like a community college.

San Francisco Academy of Art
Hi I was wondering if anyone was familiar with the online fashion program at the San Francisco Academy of Art or just the school in general!? Any opinions, thoughts, facts, etc would be great! Im currently in college studying journalism and wanted to kind of get ahead and study fashion while im still in school.

do you honestly think you can get a good education online for fashion design. fashion design usually consists of studio classes, how can you possibly get the same attention you get in person, as you would if you were to do it online. how would you know if you're doing the seams correctly for a garment or whatever if the teacher isn't physically there to correct you.
