SPONSORSHIP/OWNERSHIP/ACCREDITATION: Fashion Institute

of Technology

BACKGROUND: Started in 1944 as a small school, FIT has become

a leading venue for the study of fashion. It also offers

programs in design, computer technology, merchandising,

production, and more.

DESCRIPTION: The program, which runs for three weeks in

July, allows students to take one or two classes from FIT’s

popular fashion courses, as well as classes in advertising, marketing,

and jewelry design. Field trips to many museums and

industry showrooms acquaint youngsters with the realities of

a career in fashion.

OUR TAKE: This would be a great opportunity for the creative

student who wants to learn the fashion ropes and get some

useful background in marketing, advertising, and more.

OUR RECOMMENDATION: If your child is interested in fashion

design, this is probably the best place to be. It’s a great head

start! Since there is no boarding program, it is best to check

early to see what is available nearby.
