The real secret of a successful fashion design career is all about “Preparation”. The biggest mistake most people seem to make is a lack of research, when it comes to choosing the right school for their fashion training. The second biggest mistake is how people use all their money to invest in their fashion education. Just because a fashion school is prestigious, how is that going to help your career if you have no real technical life skills to obtain employment? In reality, your technical life skills, such as sewing, pattern drafting, French draping and pattern grading, are your trade skills, which are all you really need to create a garment to sell or obtain employment. When it is time for employment, your future employer is solely interested in your skills, not your degree or your diploma. You must always remember that, without your technical life skills, you have no valuable service to offer to your employer and that will make you less desirable for any future employment. Therefore, paying a lot more does not mean that you are guaranteed to be successful in any way.
Why pay $45,000, to upwards of $150,000, to fashion design schools, when they can’t even guarantee you a job or help you start your own fashion business? Why would you want to give all your money to a fashion institution and have nothing left to start your own fashion line or business? Hypothetically speaking, if you allocate $45,000 to $150,00 for your education, your best option is to invest 40% of that money into your fashion training and invest the remaining 60% of the funds into your fashion line/business after you have finished school.
Shockingly, not all schools are truthful in their online commercial advertisements or during the school’s Open House. First, you should really check out the school’s program syllabus and find out exactly what you are paying for and will be learning for each “individual class”. If the school cannot provide you with this information, you should consider this to be a BIG RED FLAG. You should also find out who is teaching in each of the program departments, to find out whether each instructor is competent, knowledgeable, and has an abundance of experience working in an actual garment factory setting or she/he has ever operated a successful fashion business. Many schools tend to bluff and use alternative facts about their programs and instructors during the Orientation and Open House. Unfortunately, no school will tell you, up front, who is teaching because the Human Resource Department will literally hire anybody, whether they have experience or not. There will be many cases where the fashion instructors are themselves recent fashion school graduates, with no industry experience, coming back to their old school to teach. Just like every corporation in the world, fashion institutions do fall into the same category, which means they are in the business of making big profits from their students, especially international students, where the tuition fees are generally double the amount domestic students would pay. Yes, all schools operate as a business and that’s a fact.
At the end of the day, what you should be asking yourself is, what are you really paying for? What exactly are you learning in each lesson? What skills do you really need to acquire and use as a designer in a garment manufacturing setting on a regular basis? Obviously, you won’t be drawing, painting, weaving, dyeing, quilting or writing a fashion history thesis? People should ask themselves really tough questions. Do I really need to take all these courses when all I really need to do is to make a garment from a roll of fabric and sell it to make a profit? Why is the school making me take all of these ‘trash courses’ that have no practical use in real life? Is the school offering any freebies to keep, such as a sewing machine, a serger or a dress form, during my training? Why is the school charging so much in tuition fees?
