The Parsons School of Design, part of the New School in New York City, is one of America's leading institutions focused on art, fashion and design. Students from around the country and around the world pilgrimage to Parsons with dreams of one day seeing their haute couture walked down the catwalks of Paris Fashion Week, and indeed many of those same aspirants have succeeded! The school is very well-regarded in its field, and applies a mix of practical and theoretical elements to its teaching. And of course...it's right in the heart of Manhattan, possibly fashion's capital?
