What students think about IFM Institut Français de la Mode

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

    IFM 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. IFM 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 in 1986, 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 IFM is definitely the best program to prepare you for it. IFM 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.
