Fashion Design


For many people around the world, fashion education means just one thing: FIT. Our Fashion Design program—one of FIT's original degree programs — has been preparing students for success at every level, from haute couture to ready-to-wear to mass market, for 65 years.


The program keeps evolving along with fashion itself, but some FIT traditions are forever: First, our close ties to the industry let us immerse you in what's happening now in this fast-changing field. And our own brand of fashion education nurtures your creativity while providing a rigorous grounding in the practical and technical skills needed for career success, exposing you to the real demands and practices of the fashion world.https://www.pinterest.com/powerpoint_templates/art-powerpoint-templates/


You'll learn the fundamentals of professional draping, patternmaking, and sewing techniques. You'll master computer-aided design (CAD), and learn how to take a design from concept to finished garment. This singular program guides you to become not only a designer with your own creative vision, but a professional prepared to take your place in this challenging industry.
