    You asked — and we answered. Last month, we scoured the campuses of two of the city's largest colleges, Columbia and NYU, in search of the most fashionable students in Manhattan. And, you wanted more.

    So, we put two of the most creative schools in New York City — The Fashion Institute of Technology and Parsons — head-to-head in the ultimate street style showdown. The result was a serious battle of handmade pieces (a majority of the students are studying fashion design, after all), vintage treasures, and cool-kid brands (Acne, Maison Martin Margiela) that mostly left us wondering why we didn't dress this well in school.

    Click through to meet 22 students earning an A+ in style, and find out why they think their college reigns supreme. You decide — who wears it best?
