i heard esmod is pretty good... but then i talked to some french people and they said all design schools in france suck... so i'm not entirely sure.. esmod isn't an official college though right? it's just a place to learn it or something... i'm not sure if i helped.

hehe.. well.. i mean. here in norway we do have esmod, and that's The School here.. there are no other fashion schools in this country, exept one "artistic" course at the school of arts and design. one friend of mine started there last year (at asmod..), and she is very satisfied; it is hard work, but she'll make it. and one near friend of mine did also go there, and he was the best ever at the school, and has worked in paris (don't remember for who), and for denise razzouk in NY. so i was just wondering why not anyone was mentioning it, since the school is all over europe (maybe world for all i know...?) ;D

does anyone go to Parsons AAS fashion studies?
I am studying at Parsons AAS fashion studies program. I'm disappointed with the program so far. Most of my classmats feel the same. We pay as much money as the Parsons BFA program, however, what we have are unstructured courses and unprofessional faculty. The AAS program don't teach you how to design and it has very very few design concept courses. More terrible thing is that one of my design concept teachers is a patternmaker and she taught patternmaking in the BFA before coming to the AAS. Other class like fashion drawing or construction classes are not ok too.... I would rather go to FIT. FIT is much cheaper and it has much better faculty and courses than my program...
The only good thing is that all my classmates are nice. Most of them have Ba degree and work experience. They are students who study very hard by themselves.....anyway...avoid parsons aas fashion studeis...

I am quite interested in applying at CSM. I'll be visiting the campus this June.

So my question is to...
anyone that is currently studying, or has studied at CSM, how is/was your experience? Most importantly, what did you not like about it?

hmmm sertotonin... i thought you could apply anytime to CSM..that's what it says on their website hmm..
well..i haven't necessarily studied at CSM officially as a college student, but i have taken a short course...and our instructor taught us about applying..

so..first of all... CSM likes you to apply using size A2 sketchbooks (this is the official size their fashion students use..they like big things..) you need about 25-50 of your BEST works... (no..here's how sucky i was and now look hhow fantastic i am... just your best....) and you also need to have an idea sketchbook..just so they can see your creativity and stuff..
but if your a foreign student, you have to put your photographs on a slide...or on a cd disc...
academics are really not important...but they do look at it...(you need to write some essay in your 3rd year as required by law...strange, yeh)
it was fun. i'd only been there for a week... the building's pretty ugly...very narrow and a gazillion stairs..easy to get lost in the first couple of days..
but there's you can see that a lot of creativity is there...yea..i dont know..
the rooms are so plain and empty looking..like a blank canvas.
there's no air conditioning..and i don't think there's an elevator (lift) there eithe.r..we had to walk up and down 5 flights of stairs everyday. (PAIN!) and it's even worse if you want to do the fine arts program... it's on the 10th floor or something. (your legs will surely die..but Good exercise!)
there are lots of places to eat...buy food...(superdrugs, benjys, patisseries, pasta places, pret-a-manger, etc...) lots of fabric stores (very high quality fabrics, though they can be a little pricey..but they're definitely worth it i think)

so overall CSM was fantastic.
i hope i helped.

oh yes... and You should include fine art in your portfolio (even i your doing fashion ) like...still-life....realistic stuff... they need to know you can DRAW.. the lady said this was super super important (and...she told some people in our class..in front of everyone..that they needed to learn how to draw better...brutally honest...yes)
