Would it be better for me to attend that university and specialize in fashion marketting, or to go to the Art Institute in miami and actually major in fashion merchandising?

Thank you so much to anyone who answers.
art institute schools are a joke. Avoid them.

Check out the private school's program, ask them about placement, look at the courses and compare them to what employers ask for in job descriptions.

If you want to do merchandising or marketting I would try going to the Fashion Institute of Technology. (it'll be cheaper than a private school in the long run).

The last guy I met who went to one is a truck driver now.

Be sure not confuse the School of Art Institute of Chicago with the AI franchise schools. Unlike the franchise schools it it one of the best art schools in the country and has a fairly developed fashion program, leaning more towards the conceptual part.

that's a nice way to make friends with potential industry contacts...

I think the reason noone answered you is because the fashion school thread has the information you are asking for and lately people have been posting questions like yours instead of just reading through the thread like the rest of us had to do.

still lifes, 3d stuff, some photoshop stuff showing that you know some of the programs, figure drawing, expressionist stuff, and stuff that shows that you know things about color theory and light theory.
those would all be perfect things to put in your portfolio.

fashion schools in canada
Will someone recommend any fashion schools in canada that is internationally recognized besides Ryerson. And, if so would it give me the opportunity to work in the united states and overseas? Is it necessary to have a bachelor's degree to work in fashion in the united states???? I really would like to study design but my skills in sewing are basic , my drawing skills are great , im also learning pattern making. I will try all schools mentioned and send a portfolio i am just worried that if i get a diploma i won't be able to work i n the states.

Kem,

For a Canadian to work in the US ... permanent residency and a "green card", like I have, would be required. There are a few occasions that you can be granted a visa to work ... but you'd have to be successfully working at your carreer already in Canada so you can proove that you have the skills for the job you take that cannot be done by a US citizen. This is what they look for: things like if you were an established designer with your own line or already designing for a Canadian line for a specified amount of time and a US company wanted to hire you. The hiring company would make a case on your behalf that they needed your specific creative talents and that you have been successful in Canada ...you have to proove that you are actively working and making money in your creative fied.

In either case, it's a long and difficult process ... not something that you'd do just for a year or two ... it would have to be a permanent move or only after you had reached a successful level in your carreer.

I would go to this "Homeland Security", Citizenship and Immigration Services site to see what the requirement are, before you decide on your career and where you can work. http://uscis.gov/graphics/
