Fashion Institute of Technology
You were born knowing that it’s the shoes, belt, handbag, and hat that make the outfit.
Some people just notice the clothes, but for you, it’s the accessories that make the difference. Top designers know this too; that’s why so many have lucrative accessory collections.
The center of the accessories world is New York City—home to the major design studios and sales offices. And FIT has close ties to the industry: to the people and places that can help you launch a great career. At FIT, you will design and produce a full range of accessories, from high-fashion shoes and handbags to athletic footwear. You’ll create boots, belts, billfolds, and carrying gear for sports. If green is your color, a new course in nontraditional footwear focuses on sustainability.
FIT is my alma mater, training in both Apparel and Accessories. I had an incredible experience, you will too!
