IFA Paris Master of Arts accredited by IDEL as "International Master" DURATION: 15 month program in English CAMPUSES: Paris, Florence (Istituto Lorenzo de Medici) FORMAT: Paris/Florence/Paris NEXT INTAKE: September 2017 ECTS CREDITS: 120 APPLICATION FEE: €150 TUITION FEE: €12,800 LIMITED TO: 20 students per class "Develop your collection in our designer atelier" INTRODUCTION 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... [-]
