FIDM is such a wonderful school it is a place where students are able to thrive and pursue a career in fashion and design. It may be a big work load but, it's worth it. You are able to explore your interest and your passions while still being able to pursue a degree in fashion and design. I am glad to say that it is a school that is definately worth attending.

So the reason i gave this a 4 is because its so expensive! But i thinks its great! you don't have to worry aboout going out to buy your books and materials because its included in our tuition. I love our class hours also! we start at 9:30 which is an hour later than other campuses. If i could afford it, i would definitely stay another 2 years to earn my bachelors degree!

So far I have been enjoying my time at FIDM. I love the fact that these knowledges that I have gained helped to transform my vision into a 3-D garment that makes people wonder where they can buy one.
