THREE PROGRAMS TO BUILD YOUR FASHION DESIGN SKILLS
The online Fashion Studio Short Course for fashion design provides the basic skills to become a fashion designer: from the drawing of the main idea to the making of the garment and selection of the right fabric. A course to anyone interested in the design of a fashion collection.
The online Fashion Studio Short Course is a complete and comprehensive 252 hour program regrouping 3 themes: Foundation of Fashion Design, Textile Technology and Patternmaking & Sewing. Upon completion of this course you will gain the essential skills necessary to develop a basic mini collection. The modules taught are structured around each step composing the creation of a range of outfits, from inception to realization.
The online short courses at IFA Paris have been constructed on a unique modular planning in order to allow you to customize your learning experience by electing 3 options:
Modular Learning: You have the opportunity to select very specific modules, ranging from 16 to 24 hours, in order to address precise needs related to your current or future career paths
Comprehensive Course Learning: You have the possibility to combine the 3 thematic within one comprehensive short course titled “Fashion Studio”.
This online course takes place live and in real-time (Paris or Istanbul local time) and you will interact with the lecturer and other students through our online platform. However, if you cannot attend or miss a live class, every session is also recorded and saved, so you can go back and watch it at a later suitable time for you.
