Best fashion design schools in the US?

Just wondering, from those who've been on the hunt before, which fashion design schools stand out in the US? Been trying to research but would love to hear experiences, anecdotes, or any recommendations. Thanks a lot, guys!

There are several well-known fashion design schools across the US that are often highly recommended. They often have strong networking opportunities, excellent faculty members, and good track records in terms of job placement.

1. Parsons School of Design in New York: A part of the New School, Parsons is often considered one of the top fashion design schools in the world. They emphasize both creativity and the business aspect of fashion.

2. Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York: Also in New York, FIT offers both art and business courses to give a complete understanding of the fashion industry. Not only are their faculty top-notch, but their internship opportunities are also remarkable.

3. Rhode Island School of Design (RISD): Known for their focus on creativity and technique, RISD is an excellent school for students who are looking at industries beyond just clothing design.

4. Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD): With campuses in Atlanta, Savannah, and Hong Kong, SCAD students have a unique advantage in terms of location. They have a well-rounded curriculum which includes design and marketing.

5. Pratt Institute in New York: Pratt offers an intensive B.F.A in Fashion Design that focuses on creating forward-thinking designers who will lead the style evolution.

Please note that while these schools are highly ranked, the “best” school for you will depend on your specific goals, skills, and what you are looking to get out of your college experience. It's recommended to visit these campuses if possible, reach out to alumni, and see where you could see yourself thriving. Furthermore, take into account the school's location, tuition/cost, resources, facilities, and the curriculum before making a decision.
