The U.S.-based website Fashionista has published its third annual ranking of the Top 50 Fashion Schools in the World.
London, New York and Paris dominate, but there are three Canadian schools on the list.
Central Saint Martins in London—where Stella McCartney, John Galliano and Alexander McQueen once studied—tops the chart.
London’s Royal College of Art is second.
Parsons, at The New School for Design in New York, is third.
Toronto’s George Brown College is tops in Canada at 24th on the list.
Ryerson University, also in Toronto, isn’t far behind at 26th.
Lasalle College International in Montreal is 33rd.
The methodology is not very scientific. It’s based on a survey of 3,000+ Fashionista readers who shared their experiences at the schools. Consideration was given to “quality of the faculty, practical training, social life, quality of the career counseling on offer, tuition costs, and financial aid options.”
