I am alley and I am interested in going to a fashion school, but I have a problem finding a school. I would like to hear from anyone who has been to a fashion school or graduated from one. I have been hearing negative reviews and comments about Art Institute of San Antonio. I am so confused about it now. Should I take a chance at an Art Institute or should I just go to a 4-year college I.E. University of Incarnate Word fashion management? I want to major in fashion marketing and public relations. Please fell free to say anything! Do not wash it down. I want the truth. Thank you.
Hello! I think fashion schools are great because they are specifically desgined for fashion which means they will know a lot about it. Some great schools in NYC are FIT and Parsons. However, I do think that it is important to not only have a fashion-based education but also a general education. I reccomend going to a university that isnt fashion based and majoring in something general like business, english, mass communications, marketing, etc, just to have education that isnt based around fashion (this will help you incase you need a fall back plan). Then you can continue to get a degree from a fashion and art based college.
I hope this helped! Check out my fashion blog for other tips that involve fashion and to see my personal style!
Really it's great to start from fashion school and it will give you the proper knowledge regarding like basics and whats the trend in running in the market and how it changes as per the time. What kind of thing we should have to remember always. You can take help internet it will give you the best and easily answer.
I am a first year student at the Savannah College of Art and Design, in Savannah Georgia. I am majoring in Fashion Design as well as minoring in Menswear and Fashion Management/Marketing. As for the school, I completely recommend it! The school is amazing and beautiful! You learn so much in a short amount of time from things you need to know for being in the industry to being in any art industry.
You receive so many chances to meet lots of people in the industry; so far, this being one semester, I have met the the head of HR along with the head designers of Carters, Old Navy, Ralph Lauren, and Reebok. They give presentations o the company and career/internship opportunists within their company and then you get the chance to meet one on one with them to show them your portfolio or ask any questions. The school also is very helpful in finding career opportunists as well as internships.
Also if you go to the Savannah campus, Marc Jacobs, Andre Leon Talley, Ms. J Alexander, Ana Wintours, and Lily Pulizer are constantly visiting the campus. If you don't like the idea of living in Savannah, you can go to the Atlanta campus or study abroad in Lacoste or Hong Kong.
Many people will tell you to go to a community college for the first two years then go to art school because you will be learning the same things. Well they're wrong. Two thirds of the classes I take I couldn't be taking at any community college because they're all pertaining to my major.
I was you position for all four years of high school and I was so afraid that I would make the wrong decision in school choice as well as spending way too much money, but SCAD was the best decision I have ever made. The school is pricey, but any good art school is. But the school is always offering scholarships. But definatly take a tour of the school and you'll fall in love.
If you have any more questions about the school, feel free to contact me at any time!
