Best Colleges for Fashion

Some major in fashion because they dream of one day seeing their creations on the runways of Milan. Others are interested in less glamorous aspects of the field such as retail management, costume design, or photography. Whatever your aim, many believe it essential to study in a fashion mecca like New York City. While powerhouse NYC schools like Pratt, the Fashion Institute of Technology, and Parsons do indeed grace our list of top fashion colleges, there are many other stellar programs situated in more unassuming locales (i.e. Iowa). Industry-connected faculty, corporate partnerships, co-op programs, and practical skill-building are hallmarks of excellence in fashion design undergraduate schools.
