Ranked: The World's Best Fashion Schools
Fashionista has unveiled its annual list of the best fashion schools in the world, and 25 colleges made the cut. Central Saint Martins, the London College of Fashion, and Parsons, the New School for Design took the top three spots, but schools in all corners of the globe rounded out the list, including locations in Milan, Tokyo, Savannah, Sydney, and more.
So how did Fashionista come up with the rankings? The site considered numerous factors, including famous alumni, post-graduation job placement, student and alumni feedback, cost of living and tuition, faculty quality, and more.
