Describe your personal style? I don’t really have a personal style. Just like my taste in music, my personal style in general touches several genres- never one. To put them in words, I would say my style is classy/clean, quirky, and vintage.
Where do you go on your breaks from class? I would usually go to art museums, vintage bookstores and record stores, the cinema, or go on a food break.
What is your favorite thing about FIT? I love how diverse the minds and styles of the people of FIT are!
Who or what inspires you? Anything and anyone anywhere inspires me! I believe there is inspiration everywhere; you just have to be open-minded and have the right attitude.
What do you want to do after you graduate from College? I see myself as a photographer, writer, and possibly a filmmaker.
Congratulations to all of our amazing Precollege alumni who got accepted to FIT for fall 2019!!! Whether you took one or six classes with us, we are so proud of you! Some of the majors featured here are: Photography and Related Media, Advertising and Marketing Communications, Fashion Design and Fashion Business Management.
Special shoutout to Faith who did an amazing job blogging about her Precollege Styling class at the Fashion Institute of Technology back in 2016.
The painter Chuck Close is quoted as saying “Inspiration is for amateurs—the rest of us just show up and get to work.” To be a professional artist takes skill and studio discipline. Workshops and courses taught by artists will help you develop the studio practice you need to be a full-time artist.
11-session Precollege Courses
We recommend a high school Precollege Live Class:
Basic Life Drawing – learn how to draw the figure from a live model.
Design Composition and Color Theory – explore design principles and color mixing in a studio art environment.
Fine Arts Portfolio – get your portfolio ready with an assessment from a college professor and create any pieces missing for a dynamic application.
Fashion designers from all over the world get their start at FIT. Many come back to learn even more skills, to stay on the cutting edge of fashion design and development. FIT has concentrations in menswear or womenswear.
Whether you’ve been creating your own fashions since you were a tiny tot or just decided yesterday you were meant to be a designer, Precollege can get you set up with the skills you need to start or improve!
On Saturday, April 13th, spend the afternoon with fashion designer, Christopher Uvenio. Christopher will go over his journey from fashion school to working for design houses such as Todd Olham and Anna Sui.
