I just completed my first week. I am unable to give a full review, but so far the professors are kind and excellent at teaching hands on. I hear the work load for fashion students is crazy so I imagine the semester will only get more difficult. The campus is great. Its clean and spacious, especially for being in Manhattan. The location is perfect, as it is right next to the garment district and right in the middle of Manhattan. Everything is nearby. The dorms are excellent as well. Kaufman is especially great as the rooms are larger than the rooms in other halls. Overall, my experience is great so far!
Review Fashion Institute of Technology
School primarily focuses on arts, I'd recommend this school as an affordable alternative to more expensive art schools. Some excellent professors here! Very diverse campus and a wide variety of specialized art classes offered.
The Fashion Institute of Technology is a fantastic school to attend! The admission into the school is getting a bit harder, however it is very competitive. Determination, creativity and academics is extremely important. Take advantage of the time that you are at FIT because you learn a wealth of knowledge. Your classmates and the professors, are your connections to making it in the fashion industry.
