Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising - Los Angeles Reviews
As a student who just recently visited the FIDM Los Angeles campus, I can say that my first impressions of the school greatly met my expectations. The campus is beautiful! Each class has about 15 students or less which if you enjoy being in a smaller setting, you'd definitely love FIDM. Everyone is friendly and I cannot wait to start my freshman year in the Fall.
I’m currently enrolled at FIDM LA. I would say that it’s a great school, but it can be cheaper. Yes, we have great networking and connections at FIDM, but I believe that this school can be cheaper. I don’t find it necessary to have the books and items we need already in the tuition. I believe that it should be the students’ responsibilities to go find and buy the supplies they need for the class- mostly because we don’t use any of the books we get in class. Parking can be better. We have no cafeteria. Despite all that, FIDM is a great school to learn more about the Industry and get hands on experience.
FIDM's a great place to be if you want to do fashion related work on the west coast. They teach you the basics from the ground up in every major, so there's no need to be nervous about coming in fresh. Fidm also gives you the opportunity to explore different classes outside of our major. For example, if you choose to be a fashion design major, but want to explore product development, there are only a few class differences since there are so many crossovers between the two majors. Compared to other design schools, FIDM is more focused on teaching students the technical side of industry rather than culturing creativity.
