hey Fetisha
I was just wondering how well of a drawer do your have to be in your program at Ryerson. Im really into the business and marketing with fashion. Someone recomened that I go to George Brown for two years and then transfer to Ryerson and get a BCOM in retail managemant. Do you have any advice.

developing new fabrics
just an FYI to anyone who's interested in UofM in Winnipeg. We are one of the cheapest places to get an undergrad degree. Tuition is cheap and so are living expenses. However they have recently changed the clothing and textiles program and it is now "Textiles Sciences" which basically means they are teaching you the science of creating new fabrics. We have a big textile industry here and this is what our current industry needs. Everyone I have talked to who are in the program hates it because when they started it was not Textile Sciences and was changed halfway through. I suppose if you are interested in developing new types of fabrics then it is an awesome and quite unique program.

Oh also there is an unaccredited part time evening program that teaches pattern development basically. Quite handy if you just want the knowledge but not a full degree. There are two levels, each takes one year to complete (one night a week) Here's a link: http://www.umanitoba.ca/coned/mpcp/c...ams/appd.shtml

I have heard nothing but good things from the people that have taken the part time program. It's basic for sure but if you don't have those skills it is an excellent place to start and super cheap.

TO's international acedemy sucks C@CK. Period!
The international academy of design school in Toronto has to be the biggest f****ng scam school in Toronto. They take ANYONE in their fashion program that will pay to take it. Period.
The people in the school were pathetic (both students & staff), the class material was just horrible, I cant say one good thing about the school.
For Toronto, the good schools for fashion design are Ryerson, Seneca & George Brown. Thats it.

I was going to go to Ryerson for fashion communications, but I am taking a more general BA in media studies at Western Ontario. Despite its lacking repuatation (or so I hear) I think Ryerson fashion is one of the better ones--they have some really good connections with Canadian businesses that no one else has access to (i.e. Holt Renfrew)

"Wow that was a rant, sorry. All in all I think Montreal is really the best Canadian city to be in for fashion. I mean in Toronto what aspirations can you have? Do editorial for FLARE, Chatelaine or FASHION? And apparently it's extremely difficult to get into those magazines..."

i graduated from fashion at ryerson and loved it. they taught us a lot of practical things although the admin can be frustrating. almost all of my friends (all but 1) have a fashion-related job now that they like.

i would recommend it. the academy is a scam. i mean, if you're talented you'll have good odds of succeeding anywhere. but why surround yourself with people who paid their way in (no real competition or portfolio process...).

i liked ryerson.

it's worth the extra time and money

i think i would rank it as: ryerson, george brown, seneca, and then the academy of design

but again, things are as you make them. if you're really talented and hard working you'll succeed anywhere.
