Master of Arts in Contemporary Fashion Design

IFA Paris
Campus 15 - 15 months September 2017 France Paris

Our Master of Arts in Contemporary Fashion Design was specifically designed to address these changes and is aimed at Fashion Design graduates who want to go beyond product design and development. [+]

Top Part time Masters in Fashion Design in Europe. IFA PARIS Master of Arts Accredited by IDEL as "International Master" “CONTEMPORARY DESIGN & GLOBAL INDUSTRY PERSPECTIVE IN PARIS.” 15-MONTH PROGRAM IN ENGLISH FULL PARIS EXPERIENCE Develop your Collection in the Atelier IFA Paris INTAKE: September 2015 ECTS CREDITS EARNED: 120 TUITION FEE: €14,800 APPLICATION FEE: €150 LIMITED TO 20 students Young fashion designers have become the key element in reshaping today’s fashion panorama. From the appointment of JW Anderson as Creative Director to Loewe to the acquisition of stakes of Christopher Kane by Kering Group, all events seem to indicate that now more than ever fashion creation remains essential for the activities of large luxury brands and mass-market brands. Despite an apparent return to a pure and fresh creativity, the components of fashion design related jobs have dramatically changed. Imagining garments in an intuitive way is only one aspect of a designer’s responsibilities. A head designer or a creative director must not only anticipate social and aesthetic changes, but also understand the strategic issues faced by brands in terms of positioning, market potential and communication. Our Master of Arts in Contemporary Fashion Design was specifically designed to address these changes and is aimed at Fashion Design graduates who want to go beyond product design and development. The program has 3 main objectives : - Enriching our students’ fashion and creative culture with modules especially designed for this course. For instance our ‘Fashion Cross Culture’ module was developed with the Musée des Arts Décoratifs to provide a more sophisticated approach towards the analysis of cultural discrepancies and their effect on fashion. Another key module would be “Fashion Product Semiology”. It uses semiology as a methodology to decode a garment and to decrypt its aesthetic aspect in order to better understand how it is perceived. - Developing student creativity with modules such as « Creative Process» that helps students become more aware of their own “creative logic” and increase their potential. The addition of practical workshops will provide students with a new approach on known production and designing techniques. For example the “Pattern and Draping Development” module introduces new research methods based on experimentation and opens new perspectives for students when it comes to finding inspiration. - Helping our students understand how the fashion industries work and how brand strategies are crafted on a global context. Marketing, organisational issues, financial challenges as well as image and communication strategies will be discussed in a series of various modules The course ends with students developing their own collection project with the guidance of a tutor. This project includes creating a garment and/or an accessories collection. The process involves designing prototypes for 12 silhouettes as well as developing marketing and business plans. This collection is then examined by a jury of professionals and the best students receive the opportunity to show their work to fashion professionals at the IFA Graduate Show that takes place during The Haute Couture Fashion Week. Students are also tutored to take part in several international contests that represent a great platform for young fashion designers. As with the other IFA Paris courses, the Master of Arts in Contemporary Fashion Design benefits greatly from its Paris location. With its rich cultural life, its two museums dedicated to fashion, its 6 annual fashion weeks, hundreds of showrooms and textile fairs as well as the vicinity of small-scale crafts industries, the city of lights remains the undisputed fashion capital of the world. All our programs are articulated around the ECTS framework as defined by the Bologne convention. After completing their course, students receive a total of 120 ECTS that can easily be transferred if they decide to study further. This program also received the IDEL/IDEART accreditation and is certified as an “International Master.” Course Structure Creative Culture In order to to generate relevant concepts and products fashion designers consistently have to question their own creative process in light of changes in their social, economic and cultural environments. Through the different modules of this group students will transcend an the definition of intuitive creativity in order to build their own artistic framework based on their personal motivation and intellectual process. The goal is to help them fully tap into their creative mind and therefore maximize their innovation capabilities. Modules include : Contemporary Creativity Analysis Research & Creative Thinking Creative Process Workshop Fashion Environment A strong interest towards art as well as curiosity towards other creative fields are necessary to feed fashion creativity. Aesthetic knowledge is built through analysizing various genres of imagery, graphics, color, painting, sculpture, architecture or design of artifacts. Through modules such as Fashion Ethnography, Fashion Cross-Culture developped in partnership with the Paris Musée des Arts Décoratifs, or Fashion Product Semiology, students will further analyse how fashion adresses the notions of appearance and status. Ultimately students wille be able to decode the meanings behind shapes, volumes, détail or colors of any range of fashion products. Modules include : Fashion Ethnography Fashion Cross Culture Creative Context Trends & Future Fashion Product Semiology Marketing & Management This group of modules analyzes and reflects on marketing strategies for fashion brands and provides a rigorous outline to manage them. Students examine the differences in marketing high fashion brands versus mass-market brands. Observing processes impacting brands identity, positionning, pricing, distribution and communication help students to understand the inherent challenges of the broad contemporary fashion market. The power of a brand will be analyzed through its value, its social, contractual and semiotic dimensions. Students will familiarize themeselves with the required comprehensive tools for branding in order to build coherent strategies for their own fashion brand. The need for future fashion entrepreneurs to develop innovative fashion concepts in specific markets of today’s global fashion industry is also addressed. Modules includes Positionning & Pricing Fashion Distribution Consumer Behavior Sourcing & Supply Chain Issues Branding Image & Communication Comprehensive communication and innovative design presentations are crucial for fashion houses to stand out in a crowded market place. The different modules of this chapter will train students to merge the proper wording and imagery akin to fashion communication campaigns developed in the international arena. More specifically, the knowledge and skills imparted will focus on media strategic planning, visual communication through styling, written communication through traditional and digital channels, public relation techniques and event management for fashion shows. Modules include : Communication The Fashion Press Retail & Visual Merchandising Photographic Styling Fashion Photography History & Analysis Business issues Fashion designers or Art directors must understand the legal and business framework of the fashion industry in order to converse efficiently with brand managers.

As you learn to follow your intuition and promote your aesthetic vision within those parameters, you will cultivate more awareness of the reasons behind your own fashion design choices, and those of others. Audience The program is designed for candidates with a first-level degree in fashion design, accessories design, or other related disciplines, who wish to develop their professional skills and make connections within the fashion industry. Outcome During this degree program, students will: Complete a self-driven research project on fashion design, using professional-level methods and communication techniques Develop innovative designs for garments and create a fashion collection, built on their knowledge of techniques and materials Program The program is workshop-based, supported by seminars, lectures, tutorials, and fieldwork. Industry professionals, the course leader, and project leaders guide students via individual coaching and project mentorship. The program consists of four main modules, each of which includes a two-week course and six-week workshop. The modules are followed by a two-month internship period and a final portfolio presentation. The modular structure is customizable, allowing flexibility and variety to better serve each student’s needs and goals. Courses Coursework focuses on: Exploring the historical, contemporary, psychological, anthropological, and sociological aspects of the fashion phenomenon Learning management and marketing strategies for fashion and luxury goods companies Discovering new 3D tools for modeling garments Investigating methods and tools for fashion research and design Exploring the factors that determine the economic performance of a brand or company Branding your own work and developing your professional identity Workshops Guided by industry professionals and faculty project leaders, you will work in cooperation with leading companies on practical projects relating to fashion design. Some possible workshop topics include the following: Contribute to building an innovative, consistent fashion collection from research to realization. Explore your own fashion design identity and define a language of expression and aesthetics. Investigate new options in structure and materials as you generate ideas for a contemporary fashion collection for the international market. Research and develop appropriate materials and create original structures for a bag and leather goods collection. Produce either a real fashion editorial for a print or online magazine or a proposal for an advertising campaign. Portfolio The final element of the program is the portfolio review. You will present your portfolio of work completed during the year in front of an exam board for evaluation. Internship There is no better way for you to gain experience in your field than actually working in it. The internship is a chance for you to work onsite for a company or design studio in your field of interest—while applying all the strategies you learned in the classroom and in workshops. Alternatively, you can complete an intensive project in collaboration with a company on the Domus Academy campus. Either way, you’ll get an inside perspective on how your industry really works, and you can make important connections that will further your career.
