  • IN REAL-TIME using Zoom. (Synchronous)

The School of Fashion, under the stewardship of Executive Director and former Alexander McQueen co-collaborator, Simon Ungless, along with the rest of the accomplished faculty members, arms students with technical skills to execute creative ideas into flawless designs, and the business acumen needed to survive and thrive in an industry as cutthroat as fashion. They also stage their own annual Fashion Show featuring collections of student designers. The opportunity is further extended to the annual New York Fashion Week, which the Academy regularly attends.
