I've been considering, how much is the Fashion Design degree really worth? If I go to school and spend all that money, then I will have background knowledge, but can just as easily be using those four years to build my own company without formal education. I am aware that schooling does help with connections, and networks you would probably not else encounter. My question is for the current and past Fashion Design students, what school did you attend? Also, was it worth it, in your opinion?
