About Fashion Design - Majors in Garment, Knitwear, Creative Pattern Making, Leather Goods, Footwear, Image, MA - at Institut Français de la Mode

With an emphasis on real-life experimentation and project-based learning, the Master of Arts in Fashion Design offers you ways to express a strong personal creative signature, broaden your artistic horizons and gain professional acumen.

Seven pathways of specialization are offered:

  • Major in Garment (Womenswear & Menswear)
  • Major in Knitwear
  • Major in Creative Pattern Making
  • Major in Leather Goods (bags, small leather goods)
  • Major in Footwear (shoe design)
  • Major in Image

Taught by the best faculty and practitioners in their field, they allow you to hone your technical skills and develop a full personal collection that is altogether meaningful, crafty and innovative.

The course runs over 19 months, plus a 6-month internship.
