Is it required to get bachelors degree in apparel and design to be an official fashion designer?

I'm a Freshmen in high school attending an art school, and my study is fashion and design. I've been thinking about applying to colleges for this study. My top arts school is the University of London which is really hard to get into. But, I'm open to any colleges. Lastly, what is the salary range for a fashion designer in the United States?

Hi, Gabrielle!

For information about fashion designers (what they do, required education and training, salaries, job prospects, etc.), check out the Occupational Outlook Handbook (https://www.bls.gov/ooh/arts-and-design/fashion-designers.htm).

There are some wonderful institutions dedicated to fashion design around the world. To get an idea, this article provides some general information to get you started in your search. There are some additional universities that are equally impressive depending on your desired location and areas of emphasis you wish to pursue within the fashion design world. Keep your mind open to the possibilities!

Hi Gabrielle,
In most cases, a degree will be required to break into the industry. Not only will schooling teach you valuable skills but will allow you to more easily network and get an internship to gain more hands on experience.
