Get your "Eh"ducation!

When I first decided I wanted to go to school for fashion design, I was hardpressed to find a school I wanted to go to. Canada isn't really the fashion capital of the world, although we are full of up-and-comers.
If you are like me, an aspiring fashion designer from Canada, allow me to provide you an easy list of both public and private post secondary schools, taken from the Toronto Fashion Incubator. Turns out, It doesn't matter if you live to the west or the east, there are plenty of options, if you have the balls to just go for it!
