“I began design classes with The Cut years ago, and loved the course as a design process overview and a really useful preparation for my summer Intensives at Parsons. I came back to do my portfolio preparation, and am thrilled to say I got in to Parsons for Fashion Design, with a scholarship! Thanks Cutting Room for all the support.” – Shirley Tang/ The Cut Alumni
