About Fashion Design at Institut Français de la Mode

In the hub of Paris, with incomparable links to the world-renowned French fashion houses and their legendary ateliers, the BA in Fashion Design is taught by designers working in international studios and highly qualified, industrially experienced technical staff.

Offered either in English or in French, the course focuses on learning through guided experimentation and innovative technical practice. You will learn to use both cutting-edge techniques and artisanal craftsmanship in order to transform your 2D ideas into 3D garments and accessories as you develop your signature style.

This three-year program will prepare you to "hit the ground running" when you graduate, whether your ambition is to work for a major luxury brand, start your own business or work as an independent designer.

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.
