Fashion Design education at Pratt Institute is trans-disciplinary in nature, closely allied with illustration, photography, film, performance, visual studies, and material culture. The practice of fashion is taught as one's cultural embodiment within a social framework and learned through rigorous attention to production, craft and contemporary aesthetics.


Fashion Design students at Pratt Institute build a vision and a language through conceptual processes emphasizing curiosity, imagination, improvisation and play. They communicate that vision through proficiency in construction and illustration skills, fluency with materials, traditional techniques, and digital technologies as well as synthesis of germane research. 

One of the world's most prestigious independent colleges, Pratt Institute is globally recognized for its distinguished academic record. Graduates in fashion carry the hallmarks of the department into the working world, where they are recognized for a commitment to ingenuity, authenticity, creativity and personal vision as well as an informed versatility. Their creative approach both reflects and challenges the needs of contemporary culture.
