Fashion Study Travel Experience

I am planning a travel experience for my student April 18- 23,2014. Some of our travel will be of a "tourist" nature but most of our time will be about exploring fashion and design.

What do I need to anticipate re: business hours over the Easter weekend? Any advice on how to make this both an instructive and unforgettable experience for my students is welcome...

Is there any particular "exploration" you are targeting. IE. visiting schools like FIT and Parsons (see CH's response) or designer offices, showrooms? In which, case you may need to expand your research further than a Travel Forum by doing directly to the "industry."

Contact the PR or HR departments of some of the major brands to see if they can arrange a tour. There should be some contact info on their websites.

If they are interested in fashion make sure they see

1) The Museum @ FIT http://www.fitnyc.edu/13666.asp

2) Costume Institute @ the Met metmuseum.org/about-the-museum/museum-depart…

3) The Garment District http://www.fashioncenter.com/
