Beijing Meets New York in Fashion Design Education

Share Article

A new fashion design education partnership began today between New England Fashion+Design Association (NEF+DA) in White Plains, NY and VO Art Union in Beijing, China for the purpose of promoting exchange opportunities for both students and teachers.

Irina Simeonova, founder of NEF+DA, was invited to VO Art Union to share her experiences as a fashion designer and educator. She will be lecturing for two weeks in the latter part of August 2016 to a group of students who are interested in continuing their education in elite fashion colleges in Europe and USA. VO Art Union has successfully placed many students in Central Saint Martins, Royal Academy of Arts and Parsons School of Design. This same preparation concept and student’s achievement are also what NEF+DA has accomplished with its students attending the colleges of Parsons, FIT, Pratt, Cornell just to mention few. In addition, they have sent students in costume design to Yale and NYU.

New England Fashion+Design Association was founded in 2006. Our mission is to bring knowledge and industry training in the field of fashion and design. It has cultivated programs in Fashion Illustration including Life Model Drawing, Pattern Making, Sewing and College Fashion Portfolio preparation.

We believe that fashion is not a craft, it is a profession and life style.
