The Department of Fashion Design ranked 6th in the prestigious BoF Global Fashion School Rankings!
Shenkar's Department of Fashion Design climbed up to 6th place on the list for best fashion schools and took 1st place in learning experience at the annual ranking of the world’s best fashion design schools by prestigious international magazine Business of Fashion. The Department’s rise by four ranks from its ranking in 2016 attests to its recognition and the establishment of its status, considerably ahead of prestigious and renowned institutions, including the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York (ranked 7th), and Istituto Marangoni in Italy (ranked 20th).
"This is the highest rank by any academic department in Israel. The state of Israel is fortunate to have Shenkar among the best schools in the world" said Prof. Yuli Tamir, President of Shenkar.
Business of Fashion, one of the most prominent and important websites worldwide, which engages in the economic and technological aspects of the fashion industry, has set itself the aim of establishing an objective data set to compare academic institutions from different countries. Topping the list are renowned, longstanding institutions, some of which also grant a Master’s degree in fashion.
Mrs. Leah Perez, head of the Department of Fashion Design, said, "I'm thrilled to see the department get the place she deserves at the international ranking, even though we are located in Israel, far away from any fashion capital. I could not ask for a better present for my last year as department head. This accomplishment also belongs to the dedicated staff and talented students".
