About Fashion Design - Majors in Garment, Knitwear, Creative Pattern Making, Leather Goods, Footwear, Image 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. Year 1 alternates experimental work, creative workshops and partnerships with the industry, while Year 2 concentrates on your final individual project. As an MA Fashion Design student, you are part of one highly international cohort, and study on projects with students from other Majors, as well as other programs at Institut Français de la Mode. The final individual project will allow you to develop a full collection and portfolio, related to the chosen Major.

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.
