The Symbiotic Relationship Between Fashion Schools and Brands Heats Up

Not everyone who works in fashion went to fashion school, but colleges with fashion-related concentrations remain the clearest pipeline into the industry — which is why it’s no surprise that schools and members of the industry have long been in bed with one another. In the world of fashion programs, a school’s relationships with prominent designers and brands can make it all the more attractive to applicants.

Fashion schools and fashion companies collaborate on projects of all shapes and sizes that run the gamut from scholarships, mentorships and internships (really all the ‘ships) to competitions, incubators, branded courses and training programs. You’ll find these partnerships within fashion programs around the world, big and small. But, historically, the most impressive and abundant ones have been between luxury companies (think LVMH, Kering and the individual brands within them) and the most prestigious, highly ranked design schools, like Central Saint Martins (CSM), London College of Fashion (LCF), Polimoda and Parsons School of Design.
