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!
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.
