Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising-San Francisco says
San Francisco - FIDM San Francisco is in the heart of the city's historic Union Square, with some of the best shopping in the western United States. FIDM is a specialized, private college dedicated to educating students for the Fashion, Graphics, Interior Design, and Entertainment Industries.
It's a place where creativity and careers merge. We're hands-on and industry focused. We're small enough to know our students' names, but big enough to have the industry contacts and resources to help them meet their goals. FIDM Graduates own thriving fashion, graphics, and interior design companies and we're proud of their accomplishments. They are in charge of merchandising and buying for major department stores. Some work as beauty industry executives, manage shopping centers, or design sportswear, textiles, and haute couture. Others create costumes for OscarÂ®-nominated films or give Barbie? her latest look. The clothes you wear, the websites you surf, the sheets you sleep on, the perfume you apply, and the movie trailers you watch may exist because FIDM Graduates make them happen.
We're also deservedly proud of our faculty. Besides teaching at FIDM, many are doing exciting, meaningful work in their fields. Our instructors are fine artists, production managers, costume designers, manufacturing and marketing consultants, entrepreneurs who own successful design firms, and industry executives. FIDM Students draw from their insights and connections daily.
