Mission statement[edit]

The mission of the High School of Fashion Industries is to provide challenging, creative, and effective occupational, technical and academic training for New York City students. The faculty and administration of our school, working with the cooperation of the parents and student body and with the support of the apparel industry, seek to provide a unique learning experience and a specially tailored program for all students who have an interest in a fashion related field. The school has devised programs which merge academic and occupational knowledge and skills, helping students to meet all graduation requirements and to see the unity within the diversity of learning.[1]

Admissions[edit]

Admission to HSFI is highly selective. Students must complete an application to the Board of Education, take the school’s exam that includes an art aptitude test, and submit a portfolio. Students are not expected to have formal training in the arts, and many students apply who have little drawing abilities. For prospective students, the school offers pamphlets in most junior high schools and several open house events during the year that include a mock school day with 15-minute classes.

History[edit]

Founded in 1926. In March, 1926, Mr Mortimer C. Ritter, with Miss Jessie R. Dutton and Mr. Federick G. Bruck came to the third floor loft of the Greeley Arcade Building and with two classes, one in dressmaking and the other in garment cutting, organized what was to develop into the Central Needle Trades High School. [5]

The school building was completed in 1941 as the Central High School of Needle Trades.[6][7]

Auditorium murals[edit]

These murals were painted between 1939 and 1940 by Ernest Fiene.[8][9] and have landmark status.[10] Construction of the murals (and the school building) were part of the US federal government's Works Progress Administration (WPA) program.[6] The murals "[portray] in dramatic and moving fashion the long generation of hope and despair, and the high standard of social and industrial accomplishment in the needle trades."[10]
