4 College Junior

Career Services: I have not yet finished my degree.

4 College Junior

Facilities: I have seriously wanted to enroll in the best fashion design school for as long as I can remember. I've talked and went to visit different schools here in California and I have to say, I found ACA the most student focused. I'm sure other fashion design schools have their attributes, but here I feel the most at home. No gimmicks, just hard work that pay off.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Computer Labs – Since this is still a growing school, ACA has one computer lab... however it has the most updated CAD software available. All the needed Adobe programs and pattern making software is available during school hours. There are no printers to use at school, so it really is best to have your own computer/ lap top and printer. There is also a FedEx Kinkos one block from the school that many students utilize to print, photo copy, etc. There are A LOT of design projects that will involve printing so please be cautious!

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: I am currently attending the Academy of Couture Art for a BS in Pattern Design. I have earned an AA in Fashion Design from a different fashion trade school I studied at prior to ACA. From the first day of class I INSTANTLY saw the difference from an American Fashion School (FIDM, Academy of Art, Art Institute, etc) to a high-end couture academy. The pattern design program is impeccable and the student learns every curve of the body, and how to create nearly perfect patterns on the first try... I know, I gasped too! I couldn't believe that it didn't take 5-8 fittings for the garment to fit right. The techniques you learn at this school are priceless. Prior to attending ACA, I had very limited confidence in my designs and pattern making skills. 3 quarters into the program, I managed to make 2 wedding gowns within 3 months!!! The instructors are very hands on and are ALWAYS available to help the student. Attending this school has been the best decision I've done to further my career to do what I love.

4 College Senior

Career Services: I have not personally had to use the career service, but other students have acquired short internships with local designers.
