Parson's The New School for Design has an MFA in Fashion Design and Society. Part of its description reads "Fashion is a system that brings together material resources, human capital, and artistic vision in a single garment. And that garment's cultural reception, dissemination through the marketplace, and ultimate disposal involves an equally complex chain of activity." 

The title of this degree alone connects so many dots for me. Fashion design is an artistic process that connects with society in a way that, I would argue, is unmatched my any other creative industry (besides architecture). I love that Parson's is making this connection with a Masters level degree. The program was initiated with support of the famed Parson's alumna Donna Karan.

    Any tips?
