Admission Essay Fashion Design
There is a unique satisfaction that comes with fulfilling one’s career life dreams. Without pursuing the career of one’s choice, one can never get that unique satisfaction.

So far, I have managed to succeed in life by utilizing my talent and informal training gained through interacting with well known fashion designers in Korea. Consequently I have become successful as a fashion designer although I do not have any formal training in fashion design.

I believe that fashion design has more to it than just making money; it is about lifestyle of a people with a cultural meaning.
My dream is to get admission at the school of fashion design, Fashion Institute of Technology, in New York, which is one of the best fashion design schools in the world. Given the opportunity I will study hard to acquire the necessary skills.
