Fashion site Fashionista.com recently ranked CCAD 20 out of the world’s 50 best fashion schools.

Cheryl Wischover created the list after speaking with students, employees at the schools, companies who hire graduates, and industry professionals. The list also considered tuition costs, demographics, famous alumni, and variety in programming.

“It’s not scientific, but we tried to be as objective as possible,” Wischover wrote. “The take-home message? These schools are all amazing, or they wouldn’t have made the list.”

CCAD’s fashion design major offers both design and technical skills, with a curriculum that leads students through all aspects of garment design and construction. Courses in the program include pattern making, surface design, and tailoring. Students are also provided experience in merchandising methods and sales psychology.

Each year Fashion Design seniors design and build their own collection, which they unveil at the senior fashion show. Presented on a professional runway, this is one of CCAD’s most popular annual events for the public and for professionals in the fashion industry. Go behind the scenes of this event with our fashion show blog.
