The atmosphere of this Institute really brings out all creativity from inside you. Such a warm and welcoming staff that is there to answer any questions. Everyone wants you to succeed in this school. I feel it is too early to have any real opinions on what to improve in this school, but I am looking forward to my FIDM experience. I can't wait to see what the future holds!
Review Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising - Los Angeles
I enjoy going to FIDM. This school gives you the tools for the industry and prepares you for the real world. You have to communicate with your instructors to get the inside scoop about activities and opportunities available. A closed mouth does not get fed. The instructors I have had so far really do care about the student's success. The courses are fast pace so you have to really want to be here to receive the grades you want. Stay on top of your studies. There isn't any room to slack off here at FIDM. Overall, I have met interesting people from all over the world here at FIDM and I love the school.
The education here is phenomenal. If there is someone who is looking to work in the fashion, beauty, or entertainment industry, then this is the place for you. At FIDM, you will find nothing but the most specialized professors who have either retired from or are currently working the jobs you want. The only complaint I have about the school is that it is not "college-like". By that I mean there is no football team or school mascot. It is very career-oriented, which poses as a good and bad thing.
