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.
