IADT-Detroit was recently chosen by StyleLine Magazine as an Editors’ Choice for learning options in the metro Detroit area. This distinction was awarded in StyleLine’s 2012 Metro Detroit Shopping & Services Guide. StyleLine, a publication that’s committed to helping local women find the best services, notably praised IADT’s mission and accomplished faculty members.

In the “Learning” section of the guide, IADT-Detroit was the only school in “Specialty Schools” category to earn the designation of Editors’ Choice. According to the magazine, the Editors’ Choice “seal of approval” denotes a service provider who “not only is exceptional, but also has demonstrated a special ability or interest in meeting the needs of women in this market.” IADT-Detroit educates both men and women, but women are StyleLine’s primary audience since, according to the magazine, women make the majority of purchasing decisions regarding products and services.

IADT-Detroit’s president Cynthia Bechill believes the distinction reflects the school’s ongoing commitment to offering students all of the resources they need to achieve their education goals. “When Detroit’s largest magazine picks IADT as an Editor’s Choice for Learning, it means we are truly making an impact on our students,” said Bechill. “We strive to educate students who want to stay and live in Michigan.”

IADT-Detroit’s Fashion Design Program Chair Julie Ann McEvoy believes the students also make an impact on the community. “Our students raise money for local charities through fashion shows and other fashion-related events. We work with the American Heart Association on the Red Dress initiative and also design outfits for the Detroit Goodfellow dolls.”

In featuring IADT-Detroit, StyleLine briefly described the school’s mission and highlighted the faculty’s expertise. “Their staff and faculty are passionate about their students’ success,” writes StyleLine. “Many of the dedicated faculty members work in their industries, which adds to the learning experience at IADT.” Students who are looking for the opportunity to learn hands-on alongside highly skilled instructors should learn more about the degree programs available at IADT-Detroit.
