If you’ve always wanted to be a fashion designer or work within the clothing industry, you’re in luck! Becoming a profession in the world of fashion is actually possible here in the Philippines, with universities offering high-quality courses on the subject matter. 

While fashion is an exciting profession, pursuing it does entail a look at the financial costs. Below, we’ve rounded up six renowned fashion institutes in the Philippines and their respective tuition fees:

  • Fashion Institute of the Philippines 

As the name suggests, this is the perfect place to hone your passion for fashion! Taking up fashion in FIP is quite flexible, as the school offers the option to choose your preferred amount of courses. You can take up to four classes in a term, which would cost around P40,000. The school offers beginner and advanced classes in pattern creation, sewing, design, and more.

  • SoFA Design Institute

The prestigious school of fashion offers the perfect balance of creativity and business-mindedness through its Bachelor of Arts degree in Fashion Design and Marketing! This can be completed in four years and costs P72,000 to P115,000 per academic year, depending on your year level. 

  • Raffles Design Institute

The famous Singapore-based university offers a local course in Fashion Design, which teaches you about textile clothing, styling, and more. This undergraduate program also provides you with the requisite knowledge for the business side of fashion! Raffles generally reserves their tuition fee for already-decided students, so it is best to inquire with them at 890 0860.

  • De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (CSB)

Taking CSB’s Fashion Design and Merchandising course would be one of the fastest ways to get your degree! The program only lasts three years but still instills in you the basic fashion philosophies and design development procedures. The tuition is estimated at P70,000 per term for a trimester set-up.
