I'm 17, trying to get into FIT/Parsons for Fashion Design studies (big dreams, I know). I think starting out as a stylist would be the right choice(?) but I don't know which direction should I go in that would help me succeed in getting a spot in my dream schools. I try to incorporate my own designs into my styling, which is very hard, because, well, I make my stuff according to me, so it's not a general size. Right now I'm headed towards high fashion styling after (and I know I'm wrong) I felt that street fashion styling is not the most glam looking... I don't even have enough wardrobe supply, yet I can't buy great clothes because I'm still a student that doesn't have much. Any advice will do and will be much appreciated!

I did a year of fashion design here, and now I'm starting to do some styling

they're very different things. I'd say if your goal is to get into design: practise as much on designing as possible and let that be your main focus. if it's styling, then do that. but keep a focus smile

Not really helpful at all, but I'm also trying to go to FIT lol.  But for Advertising and Marketing Communications.  It's such a competitive school, I didn't get in the first time I applied, and I just applied again last week.

Again, I'm no professional, but I feel like anything fashion related is a great benefit in any kind of fashion design program.  You need to learn how to mix patterns and textures and make different body types look good... which I feel you probably learn a lot about when styling.

Good luck!
