An Israeli college was ranked by the website Fashionista as one of the world’s 25 best fashion schools in 2016.

The Ramat Gan-based Shenkar College of Engineering and Design came in at number 9 on the list. The college, where most classes are taught in English, has programs in fashion, textile and jewelry design. Its famous alumni include former Lanvin artistic director Alber Elbaz and Israeli fashion designer Nili Lotan.

“Definitely off the beaten path and with a distinct point of view, this well-kept secret has an amazing — and incredibly affordable — fashion design program,” Fashionista said about Shenkar, adding that international students are accepted as second- or third-year students, but applicants must have completed at least one year of fashion school elsewhere.
