"Where beauty, fashion, and success wear lipstick and six-inch heels"

FIT is Named #1 Fashion School in the World


Fashion-Schools.org, a website dedicated to helping people around the world find their ideal fashion school, has just released the top 50 fashion schools across the globe. The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) was voted number one! Located in the Garment District in New York City, FIT offers seventeen different majors through the School of Art and Design, and ten different majors through the Jay and Patty Baker School of Business and Technology. Not only can students study Fashion Design and Fashion Merchandising, FIT also offers a great program for writers, such as myself, who desires to work in the editorial world of Advertising and Marketing Communications. FIT has strong relationships and connections with some of the most prominent designers and fashion companies in the world and is known for its distinguished list of graduates. Alumni include Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, Carolina Herrera, Nina Garica, Nanette Lepore, to name a few. There’s one more aspect of FIT I cannot forget to mention: the world-renowned Museum of FIT. Founded in 1967, the museum presents multiple exhibitions each year of important collections of clothing, textiles, and accessories. The Museum of FIT currently holds more than 50,000 garments from the 18th century to present day. These collections include prominent designers such as Balenciaga, Chanel, and Dior. With that being said, GO FIT!
