The Program

Our Values

Kent State University New York City Fashion recognizes the power of fashion to transform culture and communities through social commentary, thoughtful creation and the understanding of the industry that is currently in place. As we continually reexamine and reimagine our curriculum, we take on the responsibility of nourishing your passions through an exploratory educational program. Along with the cultivation of a diverse, inclusive and socially responsible class of students that will go on to become the next generation of industry professionals. 

We believe that your education should be about you and the role that you want to play in the future. We provide a comprehensive, superior and flexible education in the study and practice of fashion design, fashion merchandising and fashion journalism and more often than not, a blended curriculum of all these disciplines. There is no one size fits all here, it is about finding what fits you best.
