    Default Fashion Schools

    Hey Everybody,
    I'm planing move to NY the next year, just for a short time (one year, so so). I'm looking for suggestions of fashion and art schools that offers short courses.
    Thanks!

    Parsons is the best, then there's FIT, and Pratt in Brooklyn.

    That pretty much explains it all, although I prefer Parsons and FIT through research and people I know who went there, !

    since you are not seeking a degree ( i assume) make sure to check out those schools continuing adult programs... otherwise they require admissions like any college would. for art make sure to check out the art students league here:

    you can take courses there without getting a degree and they've been around forever.

    Thumbs up LIM College

    I don't know what type of fashion you're interested in doing, whether it be the business side or the designing aspect. If it's the business side of things, like I'm interested in, I would look into LIM College as well. It's an incredible college with a lot of history and many people I have talked to in the industry have suggested this college to me, as well as Parson's & FIT like stache suggested.

    I visited LIM during my trip to New York in February and was astounded by place. I got a private tour of the main building (12 East 53rd Street) from an actual student attending who (from what it seemed) knew everything possible about the college. Like I said though, LIM is a fashion business school and does not focus mainly on the designing aspect.

    It's always good to visit the colleges! I visited FIT in February as well and it's just amazing how much you can learn in only a few hours of getting a tour and talking to students, professors and admissions counselors.

    Good luck with your studies and your move!
