I'm new to TFS and therefore late in finding this thread, but in case anyone's still interested, I studied textile design at FIT and worked as a textile designer in NYC's fashion district. I'd be glad to tell you about their program and answer any questions I can.

Print Designer
i don't know if there's another thread like this, but i can't seem to find one. but if there is, feel free to delete this one.

anyways, i've finally figured out what i want to do with my life: print designer. i've been working with photoshop, illustrator and all those other graphic programs since forever. but i would like to know, what colleges in new york offer graphic design and such? i know parsons do, but it's probably very hard to get in there.

thanks in advance!

So you just mean graphic design as in print for publications?
Not print for fashion..such as designing prints for clothing?

Ok Merged with existing textile design thread
Hopefully you can find info you're looking for here, evelina
You could also do random google search or search through your school if you go to one now

Someone in this thread mentions she went to F.I.T. in NY

wow you're the first to post about this, paperDonna :p

i've seen a few members doing textiles in this thread on schooling:
http://www.thefashionspot.com/forums...hlight=textile
they were a little hard to get a hold of
also , theFashionspot member DJCNOR has experience working in the textile industry in New York

what school are you coming from ? and country?
don't they offer work placements?

there is this event that promotes graduates of textile design, but it's in London
texprint UK - promoting textile design talent

Centre des textiles contemporains - Canada
in English: the Montreal Centre for Contemporary Textiles

It's a cégep (like first-years college) to study textiles:
design for weaves using a hand and electronic loom, knits, dyes, embellishments and studying textile technology, the use of CAD programs, history, trends forecast, sewing and business-related topics


website: http://www.textiles-mtl.com/

Does anyone here go there?
Or know someone who has?
I'd like to speak with someone who is taking or has taken the courses there

In Toronto: Queen West from Spadina to Bathurst for jobbers and stuff... some shops do wholesale... try King Textiles, I think they have a website now too. MacFab for costumiers supplies, upholstery and notions.

Up at Dufferin and Wingold is the other fashion District in Toronto... Many designers wholesale their clothes there, and also there are more jobbers, fabric wholesalers and leather dealers, etc. up there.
thanks for the info, finalfashion

you guys write about mills
buying wholesale..
--but are there mills that actually manufacture fabric in Canada? or is it more common that the mills import material from other countries?

i've looked in the yellow pages for vancouver... so far i haven't found anything. but there are a lot of places, which will screen print designs on to ready-made fabrics
