Hello everyone,
I'm Janelle and i'm going into grade 11 following the summer. I just recently started sewing my own clothing designs with my grandmother... my machine has yet to be fixed Sad But anyways I'm preparing to go to university or college and study fashion design and I was wondering if anyone has taken or is currently taking a fashion design program, preferably in Canada? I just need some opinions on where to go to get the best training! Thanks loads.

hey, well it depends on what kind of degree and experience you want. there are loads and loads of 2 year diploma programs, and a few 4 year university degree programs. i'm going to be going into my last year of a 4 year program in clothing and textiles at the university of alberta. the university of manitoba offers a similar program. ryerson in toronto also offers a 4 year program for fashion design. i would say the difference between u of a/u of m and ryerson is that the program i am in is more general, you learn about textiles, conservation (if you are interested in museum work involving textiles and clothing), surface design, and fashion design, and from my understanding the program at ryerson is much more specialized for fashion design.

Thanks for your ideas! I was considering Ryerson because i plan to concentrate my studies on fashion design and hopefully have my own store someday. The only problem is that its quite far from NB. Does anyone know of any places in Quebec maybe? Did you ever hear anything about the international academy or design and technology? It's only a one-year course, which shocked me to the max! I don't think it would give me enough training for what i want though...

there's probably more, but the only one i am familiar with in quebec is LaSalle because a friend of mine is thinking of going there. i think they only offer 2 year programs though. but yeah if you are really focused on fashion design, then ryerson is a good choice. personally i wanted to learn a bit about everything, so that is why i chose the program i did. you should see what kind of options you can take at ryerson, like if you can take retail marking and that sort of thing, which would be helpful for if you wanted to open your own store.

Yeah good idea. I already took a look at their fashion design program and it was pretty detailed and i'm almost sure its what i want to do. It said it would be helpful to take an Entepreneurship course in high school so i registered for it and i get to take it next year, Yahoo! LaSalle... I never heard of that... I'll look into it.

There's also George Brown College in Toronto, and I believe Sheridan College in Hamilton might have a fashion program. Good luck!

Hey,
I know this thread is old but I just came across it since I've pretty much read everything new and was browsing old stuff, sad i know, anyways I'm from Fredericton, NB or at least going to school here at UNB.  What part of NB are you from?  You mentioned that you would like to go somewhere close to NB, have you considered the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design, aka The Craft COllege? They offer a two year diploma program in Fine Arts , and you can major in Fashion Design or the following disciplines: Clay, Creative Graphics, Jewellery/Metal Arts, Photography, Surface Design, and Textiles. If you have any questions, comments I would be happy to try and help you.
