I’m younger than you so I’m probably no help, but I’ve already started looking at colleges’ websites and their requirements. But I’m sure people will come along to answer this question better than I can haha.posted almost 5 years ago
I go to FIT, and majored in FMM (fashion merchandising management). You dont really need anything for that major…However, if you are artistic and have an art background I wouldnt recommend it. I used to major in fine arts until i swtiched, and I HATED it!
For design, deffinately start on your portfolio!! any sketches, drawings, paintings, then narrow it down to whatever the amount is that you need. Make sure they are your strongest pieces though, it is very competitive. also, I know for FIT they want a finished garment. Its best to just go to the schools websites and check out the portfolio requirements. If you’re interested in FIT, visit fitnyc.eduposted almost 5 years ago
Thanks for both of you for replying!
Lady_Phoenix, thanks for the advice! Oh and I’m also wondering, how does one apply for FMM in a major art school? Do we also need some sort of a portfolio for that?
i go to parsons and if you want to do fashion design, you have to go through foundation first which contain studio courses like drawing, 3d,2d, and lab. for the portfolio process, they mainly want traditional art (paintings, still lifes, figure drawings, sculptures)posted almost 5 years ago
