Fashion Industries

 

"To me, photography is very important because it has helped me understand things from the past, from our history. I feel that if it were not for photography, history would be harder to visualize and understand."

Designing the Future Exhibition

High School of Fashion Industries
Principal's Gallery, Room 821, 225 West 24th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues

ICP and HSFI invite you to celebrate our photography partnership. This exhibition features photographs created by high school students in ICP's Community Partnership with HSFI. It is on view May 8–Fall 2014.

The High School of Fashion Industries program features an integrated curriculum designed by ICP and HSFI, which includes an in-school foundation photography course, an after-school beginner's class, and an intermediate documentary workshop. This yearlong program takes place in a teaching facility built by ICP, which includes a ten-station darkroom, a film-processing area, and a studio/classroom. The collaboration culminates in an annual exhibition opening in the Principal's Gallery at the high school featuring the students' photographs and writing.

The mission of the High School of Fashion Industries is to provide challenging, creative, and effective career, technical, and academic training for New York City students. The faculty and administration of our school, working with the cooperation of the parents and student body, seek to provide a unique learning experience and a specially tailored program for all students who have an interest in a related field.

This program is made possible with support from the New York City Department of Education.
