Rhode Island School of Design I hear has a pretty decent cirriculum too,with which you might want to take into consideration. NY designer Tess Giberson attended that one.

From the things I hear,its quite substantially based(creativity,expression et al)combined with the technical stuff. Sounds awfully similar to that of the Royal Academy in Antwerp. Perhaps,the most underrated of schools. But maybe that's a good thing?

um, there's always SVA (School of Visual Arts)
If you look at any of the student annuals (Graphis, AIGA, ADC) the majority of winners are from SVA....and these are international contests.
I think one year, about 80% of winners of Graphis were SVA students....

I don't think SVA has a fashion program...thats why my friend switched to Parsons after her first year. I am hopefully going to study fashion at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago...hopefully my portfolio will get accepted.

Hello,

My name is Tashi. This is my first time posting here. I came across this site by chance and was thrilled. I had never been able to find a site where people discussed fashion in depth.
Welcome to TFS!

No
SVA doesn't have fashion design. Parsons is best for that.
Loserunit mentioned advertising. That's why I mentioned SVA.
It's best for graphic design though. That's what I went for.

I have a degree in Architecture and have taken classes at Otis/Parsons here in Los Angeles and have to say the evening program is excelent. Because of my background in design and Fine Art i found it relatively easy to pick up. After 6 months of classes at night I started my line and feel confident I have learned most of what I needed. For any of you in the Los Angeles area interested in a BFA in Fashion Design you should check Otis. www.otis.edu

SMC - Santa Monica College also has an AA in fashion design priced at $18 per credit with excelent instructors and transfer credits into 4 year schools. www.smc.edu

IMO the best education is the one you will find by going out and doing. Fashion design is not so strict that you even need a degree to succede. Take a few classes, make some clothes and push your way to the top. I have met alot of people that have degrees from great schools that are working at Starbucks.

Adil Oliver Sharif, NU Magazine, London / Brandon Pierre, US: How much of an impact did Saint Martins have on you and your design skill? And, what were you like as a student?

Alexander McQueen: St Martins is a lot about hype and not much substance. As a student, I spent a lot of my time in the pool room in the cafe since I didn't feel I was learning much.
