The School of Fashion and Textiles is celebrating success in the recent Business of Fashion (BoF) ‘Best Fashion Schools in the World’ survey, which assesses and recognises top fashion schools and programs around the world.
BoF is an independent digital resource, reporting on the global fashion industry.
In 2019, the Bachelor of Fashion (Design) (Honours) has been selected in the top 37 schools in the Undergraduate - Fashion Design category. The school was ranked in the top 11 of this category receiving all four badges: Best: Overall, Best: Global Influence, Best: Learning Experience; and Best: Long Term Value.
The Master of Fashion (Entrepreneurship) program was also recognised in the survey’s Graduate - Fashion Business & Management category. It was selected in the top 10 of surveyed schools and gained one badge: Best: Learning Experience.
“To be acknowledged as among the world’s leaders in fashion education is a great outcome for RMIT and the School of Fashion and Textiles, recognising our strong industry partnerships and progressive teaching” said Dean of the School, Professor Robyn Healy.
Outlining the winners, BoF noted the success of some fashion schools at innovating and incorporating advances in tools and technologies into their programmes, including RMIT.
The Business of Fashion list aims to give prospective fashion students further insight and information to assist with choosing a school that best suits their needs. Previously the information was provided in the form of a ranking system. This year, however, a new methodology better assesses and recognises fashion schools and their offerings.
