If you were still in High School, I would recommend joining a Vo-Tech program, most have a fashion or cosmology program. Otherwise art, then find a trade/specialty school.

Any fashion or design class, as well as business classes. Although it really doesn't matter what classes you take in high school because your going to get all of your education for fashion design in college. It is highly unlikely that you will have a career in fashion design if you only have a high school diploma.but if you want to you can take art, self-marketing, textile development, or any classes like that.:]

For fashion design and photography, a person may need to go to school for 2-3 years. This can depend on how many classes they choose to take at a time.

Well I think it would depend on the college but if you were attending a fashion college, the major would be fashion design but a four-year or a community college might have it under a different name. A great fashion college for fashion design is (FIDM)The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in LA. The school has years and years of experience in the fashion industry and many famous fashion designers graduated from FIDM.

Well I would say a desire to design and a eye for creativity and trends for sure but also attending a fashion college will go a LONG way and I'm sure a lot of fashion design jobs require that you have a degree from a fashion college. If you're researching fashion colleges, look into FIDM. I have friends who graduated from that school and they really loved it and told me that FIDM has a very well known fashion design program and that a lot of famous fashion designers graduated from that school. Good luck!

The tuition can vary depending on where you attend college and the location of the school. For the fashion design program at FIDM, the tuition is around $28,000 a year. College is expensive no matter where you go so just go where you want and pick the school that has the best program and it will all pay off in the end :)

In some schools, you have the option of taking a fashion design course, or a sewing course at the least. I'm not sure what is available to you, but you could ask teachers or whoever runs your schedule about fashion classes. Hope this helps!

In high school and roughly the first 3 years of college . . . as many as you can get.

Any art class you take in high school will be extremely helpful for fashion design. Drawing, Painting, Crafts and Sculpting are all great. If your school offers a specific fashion course that would be better.

User Avatar

I'm sure it depends on which design school you selected. Virtually all art schools have programs in graphic design and general design concepts that could be useful in fashion design but not all art schools have specific fashion design courses. I would try and find a school that has a fashion design curriculum.
