Great comment! And Congrats on your success!
My point was just to be aware of what you want out of your fashion career. There are many roads to success, but being around the people who are in the currently in the careers that you want to be in, is VERY IMPORTANT. If you choose to go to school is Texas be sure that you spend the time and effort, to be around the best of the best in the industry. If your best is the designers in the area like Abi Ferrin or Oscar Fierro then you're ok. However, because of what I want in my career, it required a different type of exposure. I needed to see top international designers and absorb all that I can. My education will not end in New York, I will go to Paris, Milan, and London-- because I (like you) plan to have an extraordinary, sustainable fashion design career.
In summary. (1) Know what you want in you career -- what's your ideal job & company? Do you want to work for yourself?
(2) Go to a school that gives you the exposure to people working in the career and at the companies that you want to work at. And that gives you exposure to people who are well known and admired in the industry for their own companies.
