Planning a career in Fashion? Fashionista.com – a news site covering the personalities, companies, events and trends that shape the fashion universe – has published its annual survey of the world’s best fashion schools and ranks Israel’s Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art in the top 10.
“Definitely off the beaten path and with a distinct point of view, this well-kept secret has an amazing — and incredibly affordable — fashion design program,” write the news site’s editors about the Ramat Gan college.
Famous alumni of Shenkar include Alber Elbaz and Nili Lotan.
To create the “25 Best Fashion Schools in the World in 2016” list, Fashionista editors looked at tuition costs, successful alumni, student feedback, quality of the faculty, practical and business training on offer, social life, career counseling and financial aid options.
Fashionista gave top marks to Central Saint Martins (London, UK); followed by London College of Fashion (London, UK); Parsons, the New School for Design (New York, USA); and Istituto Marangoni (Milan, Italy).
The survey ranked Kingston University (London, UK) as the fifth best fashion school in the world, followed by Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Antwerp, Belgium); Fashion Institute of Technology (New York, USA); Bunka Fashion College (Tokyo, Japan); Shenkar College of Engineering and Design (Ramat Gan, Israel) and Royal College of Art (London, UK).
