FIT Course Charges $55 To Explore Williamsburg


In the credit-less SXT 300 Brooklyn: Williamsburg, The New Style Frontier course offered at the Fashion Institute of Technology, privileged young fashionites pay $55 to "experience the cultural vitality of the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, often referred to as the new SoHo." Fancy that!

Led by Trina Morris, a fashion publicist for Style Root PR, the seminar starts with a brief intro at FIT, followed by an exciting ride - by Subway! - to Brooklyn (subway costs not included, haha you pay now). Once here, our young explorers take in the sights, visit shops, and take notes of any "future fashion and lifestyle trends" they spot.

Here's the course description:

"Experience the cultural vitality of the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, often referred to as the new SoHo. Browse through vintage clothing and housewares that will inspire future fashion and lifestyle trends. Discover up-and-coming artists in Brooklyn's diverse galleries. Sample a great selection of restaurants, coffee houses, and family-run bakeries. Williamsburg exhibits the traditional alongside the ultra-modern, even as it changes rapidly, making it a trend hot spot. After a brief introduction at FIT, attendees travel to Brooklyn by subway."

Here's how it probably went (reenactment compliments of @asilentflute):

"OK, so this is beacon's closet. As you can see, lot's of dirt balls and europeans on vacation. Let's all try and find some dirty shoes, GO!"

Now here's the bad news for all future Williamsburg Fashion Explorers…this one-time seminar already happened on October 24th, so we won't be able to send along a mole.

FIT-ers, please keep us posted the next time you call come out to Brooklyn - by Subway - so we can tag along and throw peanuts.

I hope they took the JMZ to get here.

I think this class is a great idea! I already live in Williamsburg but if I am going to contact FIT to see if I could pay the $55 and tag along on the next voyage. I have always wanted to see what Bedford Ave looks like.
