Hi... 1st time poster here!
I live in the south of England, and am applying for an art foundation for 06. The best places in my opinion if you want to go on and study design in this region are LCF which i loved and Ravensbourne in Kent.
I never liked CSM as much as the others because i felt it was more suited to fine art students (and they told my friend who applied to do an art foundation that they couldn't accept her because her work was mounted on black, not white) which is of course ridiculous considering the massive amount of talent she has...
Chelsea looked good to me too, although they mainly focus on textiles and knitwear, not design.
I guess it depends what you are applying for and maybe what you want to study at degree level...
....I have my interview at LCF next Wednesday! Wish me luck:p

and to add to that
how hard is it to get in there? as in international students

well..it doesnt matter which school really(between csm, parsons and fit)
it all depends on the student
but parsons and csm really does have the bigger name in the industry

there are a LOT of students in my class that left parsons to come here (csm) thats kind of wierd but they say that there school is too technical and less design

I think i'll be applying directly to fashion design, according to the person I talked to, since I would have already completed my foundation at parsons.

:s ick:
I am sorry to say but AIU-Florida is the worst school to ever attend. I know this b/c I started there first for 9 months and didn't learn a damn thing. Instead I transferred to AIU- London which was such a big difference in curriculum and atmosphere. This campus was all about you learning and realizing if the fashion industry would be for you. It was so intense I was ashamed to even ask questions in my classes due to the lack of knowledge a 9 month student should have, AIU- Florida will not be ready for people who are designers, illustrators and even stylist b/c their lack of teachers. AIU- Florida was a new program when I started and that was in 2004. I know if you want to really learn and experience anything in the fashion field do not attend this school look else where please. I really don’t want to offend anyone but if you graduate from this school not only will you be inexperienced you would be waisting your time and money. Besides this school is for lazy students- to be frank. And for the person/peoples who give props to this campus please look to attend somewhere else if you are looking about being a designer and or illustrator. Please!

. It isn't anything major, it's just a short introductory course in fashion design. I'm 15, so I can't do anything bigger than that, hehe . But I've seen some portfolios of the students that go there and wow... their work is really amazing.
