The school in America considered the best and most closely related to the
actual industry is FIT in New York. Fashion Institute of
Technology-associate degrees,4 year and post graduate-part of SUNY (State
University of New York.) Students do need some expertise as they are
applying if they expect scholarships because they must design, illustrate,
and construct several garments for the application portfolio.

Subject: Fashion Design Programs

I have a very talented student who is interested in studying fashion
design. I am wondering if any of you can recommend good fashion design
programs in the United States, Canada, and/or France (she does speak
French). Naturally, she is also interested in programs that offer
scholarships. Currently she is looking at Parsons, RISD, Pratt, and the
School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I have no first hand experience
with any of these programs and can not recommend other schools for her to
investigate. Any thoughts/information you can pass on to me would be
greatly appreaciated.
