Summer Fashion Program - Testimonials
"I had the best summer ever working for the Summer Immersion Program as a current LIM student. I got the opportunity to meet and befriend ambitious young woman from the States and other countries such as, Canada, Mexico, Peru, Cyprus, and Iceland. We got to shop, eat, and explore NYC together. We visited Industry corporations like Refinery29, Daily Front Row, John Varvatos, and Texworld at the Javits Center. Yet nothing beats my favorite memories which were, cooking in the kitchen together, early gym workouts, rooftop dinners, Brooklyn Bridge at night and of course The Bachelorette. #JonePaulJonesForever"

“I gained much from the Summer Fashion Program at LIM College. I learned about all the various fields within the fashion industry, which made my decision about what I want to do in the future much easier. I loved to get the opportunity to live in busy New York City – especially coming from Iceland and listening to people in the industry talk about how they made it in this competitive environment. Lastly, I’m grateful for all the friends I made. Living with them in the dorms and experience this all together made my summer unforgettable.”

"I absolutely loved my experience at LIM College. The staff and instructors put so much care into every aspect of the program, from housing to class materials, which really made LIM feel like home for the weeks I was there. I fell in love with NYC during the program. It was so amazing to spend time learning about things like trend forecasting, merchandising and marketing, and then go out into the streets and see all of it around me in a place like no other. There's no better place to learn about fashion! We got to see all aspects of the industry firsthand and talk to experts about their careers, which really was helpful for me to see where I fit into the fashion world. I've wholeheartedly recommended the program to all of my friends who are exploring fashion as a career!"

As a college student, these experiences with LIM College’s summer program gave me a deeper understanding of the path I wanted to take with my education and ultimately my career. Along with the knowledge learned and exposure through the program, I also gained friendships with girls from all over the world. This is an opportunity like no other, and definitely not taken for granted.”
