Fashionista, a fashion news site read by over one million readers per month, recently ranked Pratt's fashion design program third in the country following Parsons (The New School for Design), and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
According to Fashionista, Pratt's third-place ranking comes in part because its program in fashion design has "shed its image as an up-and-coming fashion design program and become a force to be reckoned with."
Fashionista goes on to mention that Pratt's student shows are getting more attention and "attracting such luminaries as Vogue personalities and well-known designers."
The publication highlighted that students in Pratt's Fashion Design department are able to take classes in other art and design disciplines, as the department is part of a larger design school, and noted that Pratt's is one of the few design programs to offer electives in fashion editorial and magazine publishing.
Fashionista also ranked Pratt on its list of the top fashion schools in the world in a December 2010 report.
