Today is your chance to have any of your questions answered from personal fashion related problems, to figuring out if FIT is for you, to getting to know me better. Don’t hesitate to send your question my way!
Thank you for answering my question. So I was also wondering if you have any tips on how to incorporate fashion in your life in a small town. And I know everyone has their version of wardrobe essentials, what do you feel are the fashion basics men need for a fashionable and functional wardrobe?
I am a small town boy and fully understand your problem. The best way to incorporate fashion in your life is surround yourself by it. There is no excuse to not read every form of fashion related literature. Magazines and documentary’s are the best way to learn the industry without being apart of it yet.
Are there a lot of math/math-ish courses involved in Fashion Merchandising Management? :/
FMM is a buying career driven degree, in order to be a buyer you must love 6 month purchasing plan, and be ready to love working with numbers alongside a little bit of clothing! You should check FMM’s AAS curriculum before applying.
Hey. I really love your fashion style. I think bright colors are amazing and more guys should try it out. I hope to be in fashion someday and really want to apply to four different fashion schools next year. One of them is FIT. The major I’m interested in is also the major you are in. I feel it’s much more realistic and marketable then design in hard times like this. I’m also a huge fan of writing and hopefully someday I can do something with that as well. I am also from a small town in Ohio an
Thank you so much for your support, and I can not agree with your more, guys should wear more color!
You are wise by applying to many schools opening up your options when it comes to deciding the next four years of your education. FIT would be a great match for you, they offer a 2 plus 2 system in which you could major in FMM and AMC. Allowing you to be marketable in buying and writing, ultimately giving you an educational edge. If fashion is your true love, leave Ohio and see where New York takes you, this really is the city to make your dreams come true!
I'm a junior in highschool and im interested in attending FIT. I'm afraid of not getting accepted though. I have a 3.1 gpa. I want to major in cosmetic and fragrance marketing. Do you have any tips you could give me about applying? Thanks alot (:
Your GPA is great and you have a good choice of major, but you can’t apply directly to Cosmetic and Fragrance Marketing out of high school. FIT is a 2 plus 2 program, in which you first need to do your AAS, my two favorites are FMM or AMC depending on your strength in math or writing. Then after you complete your first two years with your AAS, you can then apply to Cosmetic and Fragrance Marketing BS. Just keep your GPA up and remember to have fun, it is still college.
is it hard for boys to get into FIT? and is it also competitive for photo majors to get in?
FIT is an equal opportunity university, there may be a small percentage of men attending. In no way though does that mean it is any more difficult for men to get in compared to women.
As for photo-majors, it’s just as competitive as any other major. You must have a 3.0 or higher GPA with a strong portfolio. FIT is one of the top school in NYC - put your all forward and you will not have anything to regret!

As you all know I am still a full time student, and I usually don’t discuss school. BUT this week until May 21st, I am on strict finals mode. Luckily I was able to snag my friend Katarina, editor at Coco Kouture Mag, to capture this typical school day outfit. If only everyday could be a business day full of meetings and styling, I’d take that any-day over finals week!
