The program focuses on international developments and how they influence the fashion industry.
The seven-semester study program covers practical, artistic, and theoretical aspects. Providing individual support and promoting personal skills take top priority. Establish industry contacts from an early stage: Cooperation with fashion companies and cultural institutions as well as an internship are important parts of the study program. Specialist English skills will help you to launch your career in the international fashion scene.
