The Columbus College of Art and Design was just recognized as having one of the top Fashion Design Programs in the entire World by Fashionista.com, a fashion-industry news outlet.

“Imagine our delight: one of New York’s leading sources for fashion information cites our fashion design program as one of the best in the country and best in the world,” said Denny Griffith, President of CCAD. “It’s a splendid ratification of our growing strength and influence as a college, and a clear recognition that the powerful partnerships and support we have cultivated with the likes of Limited Brands, Abercrombie & Fitch, Tween Brands, and EXPRESS are truly paying dividends.”

“Out of the 50 top fashion design programs in the world, including some very large and prestigious institutions, we rank 20th,” said Melissa Ricksecker, Director of Marketing & Communications at CCAD. “Within the US we are in the top 10. We’re pretty proud.”
