on Monday,October 11,2010 14:10
Those who wish to become fashion designers may benefit from enrolling in a fashion degree program in New York. One of the biggest events in the industry, Fashion Week, takes place each year in the heart of New York City.
The new venue for Fashion Week is Lincoln Center. Models, writers and designers have been quoted as saying this is an appropriate venue for their creative efforts.
Students at The Art Institute of New York City who are enrolled in the fashion design program, as well as the fashion merchandising and marketing program are able to participate in Fashion Weeks in September and February. The students volunteer at shows, completing a range of tasks for designers.
Approximately 50 Art Institute of New York City students volunteered this year for the September shows, and worked for many designers including Jill Stuart, Custo Barcelona, Victoria Beckham, Ivanka Trump, Walter Baker, Roberto Cavalli and Sonia Rykiel.
"It's hard work, but in the end, when things come together, it's such a great feeling to see my accomplishment. My dreams have come true," said Marjorie Brown, a 2007 graduate of Art Institute of New York City's fashion design program, who briefly worked in the industry before creating her own label in 2008.
