Thumbs up Fashion & Costume Design Majors Group is Up and Running...

We're interested in hearing from present and future Fashion and Costume Design Majors!!!

The range of discussions will include good schools for both majors in the US and abroad, classes to take & avoid, up-to-date industry info, internships, and beyond.

Whether you plan to make this your lifetime passion, or are just pursuing it as a hobby, feel free to join.

The rules are pretty much the same as those for cosplay.com, but mainly with an emphasis on playing nice and staying on topic.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to pm me.

I think this would be awesome. (are we allowed to post already? XDD)

I'm actually planning to apply to FIDM in San Diego in hopes to major in costume designing. And I honestly wanted to ask if the career is worth it. What will you really do, where will it take you and etc.

Whoops, I forgot to add the forum for this. The forum should be showing up now under this one, for anyone who is a member of this specific usergroup.

Used to be a Fashion Design major at the University of North Texas, I am not at the University of Texas in Austin, and am doing an internal transfer come the fall semester (they stuck me in the Natural Sciences college. Wtf?) to the Theatre & Dance college so I can pursue a major in Costume Design & Technology .

Is that school fookin expensive? I wanna get into costume designing, but the CSU i go to don't have fashion design... Can't afford Academy Art SF, either.. :P
For now I'm planning on using my Illustration and Japanese majors to get into character designing for video games... which is basically costume designing, but no real fabric involved.

yes it is expensive, i will be on the "ramen noodle" diet for like forever, and my 6 years of japanese 4-hours a day got me into translation and in-betweens for animation... i hate 3-D so I am 2-D exclusvely

all hail in-betweens for saiyuki... farmed out to whom-evah....

but it is fashion design i really want to do, have done window dressing and set design, mannekins.... but doens't pay

natsukoarts is our design house, the sister will be doing all the sewing where I do all the designs (and the writing, i'm an author), and the boyfriend does the marketing, lettering for the web comic and the keys that piss me off

I've been looking into colleges since I need to start applying next year. I'm hoping to double major in Fashion Design and Photography so thus far my two top choices for colleges are the Academy of Art University in SF or Parsons School of Design in New York.

Dude, if you get into PARSONS, go to PARSONS, best in the universe.
As a New Yorker migrated to the "West" that is the way to go!

Heehee wow that good eh? It's definatly one I want to attend. My only draw back is how far away from home it is, you know? San Fran isn't too far (I live in Vegas). Either way, it's on my top two choices right now! I just need to get out tehre and check it out, and such.

Glad it got such a good reaction! Lol. I go to an art school right now, and I know a kid trying to get in, and a few of my teachers have mentioned it to me as well. Everyone tells me that's the one to go to. I just really have to worry about getting in~
