      New York City

Live fashion as you utilize all NYC has to offer in this truly experiential and engaging educational program. Learn firsthand from some of the titans and up-and-coming fashion entrepreneurs, as you visit the famed Greenwich, SOHO, and Chelsea neighbourhoods. A trip to the Big Apple would not be complete without heading to a famous Broadway Show.

      The World of Fashion course is meant to be experienced in New York City.  Design sketches and plan out an eco-fashion garment inspired by a famous NYC neighbourhood – Chinatown, Little Italy, and Central Park to name a few. Mix and mingle with some of the city’s fashion designers as you network and interview these artists to gather the essential information needed for your Executive Summary Assessment.
