The Fashion Institute of Technology claims to be "where creativity and business meet." Since it was founded by clothiers in the Garment (Fashion) District, this claim is on safe ground. Started in 1944 with 100 students, today FIT has over 11,000 students majoring in over thirty fields. Students prepare to meet business head-on, many are involved in broadening internships. Calvin Klein and many other prominent designers learned their craft here.
