The MSc Fashion & Luxury is a multi-disciplinary management program, delivered in English and designed to provide a diverse group of internationally-minded students the tools and skills necessary to accelerate their careers within the fast-moving fashion, luxury and beauty sectors.

The academic approach of the MSc Fashion & Luxury program mixes intensive in-class learning, innovative workshops, real-world business cases, study trips and language lessons. Students learn to navigate on a daily basis between theory and practice, creativity and analysis, the emotional and the rational, management and creation.

Students also examine how the fashion, luxury and beauty industries have evolved over time –via historical and contemporary references– and develop the skills to understand the "French touch", and its essential impact upon the sector.

What students think about Institut Français de la Mode

    Guillaume HENRY (Class of 2001), Creative Director, Nina Ricci

    Institut Français de la Mode turns its students into fashion design professionals. I was impressed by the pace of the projects and by the quality of the faculty dedicated to our program. Institut Français de la Mode puts you as close as possible to the reality of the industry, and embraces all the steps of the creative process, right up to the end product. A 360-degree learning experience!

    Vogue, 2 September 2015

    Since its creation, IFM has been considered as one of the best fashion design and fashion management schools.

    Tuomas MERIKOSKI (Class of 2002), Founder of Aalto International

    Usually nothing beats real experience in the industry, but Institut Français de la Mode is definitely the best program to prepare you for it. Institut Français de la Mode gave me the opportunity to mature my approach and pushed me to dig into who I was as a designer. Hard work, failures and successful projects, in an obsession to push you to the limit - this is the recipe to elevate a student from a bachelor to a master.
