Do you think it matters what Fashion college you go to?
Do you think in order to become a successful fashion designer you must go to a prestigious fashion school? (E.g. Parsons, CSM).

I live in Ireland, so there aren't actually any big art and design schools(Unless you've heard of NCAD?) and attending one in the UK is a financial problem.

Do you think these bigger schools offer more? Or do they all cover the necessities to become a successful designer?

Bigger, more famous schools have better contacts in the fashion industry so they may be better equipped to get your work seen and out there.
I think going to somewhere like CSM would make it more likely that you'll get a job with a bigger designer (plus you're more likely to get people to know your name, as a designer) than if you go to a smaller place.

But I'm sure there're people more able to answer than me here.
