DESIGN YOUR OWN PATH TO SUCCESS

01.

DESIGN THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL FASHION

Fashion touches us in our daily lives. Whether or not we spend much time thinking about it, our apparel is part of our individual and collective identities and is an important mode of self-expression. Fashion envelops our bodies, shapes our identities, builds a social fabric. What we wear matters. Our Bachelor in Fashion Design gives you the tools to develop your creative vision for the future of fashion, and the technical and entrepreneurial skills to bring it to life.

02.

PURPOSE-FORWARD FASHION

The fashion industry is a major contributor to some of the most pressing challenges we face, from climate change, to water consumption, labor standards, and social equity. It’s time to chart a different path, one that focuses on sustainability, circularity, inclusivity, and social responsibility in sourcing and manufacturing. Our program prepares you to lead that change, and to infuse a sense of purpose in everything you design and make.

03.

A VIBRANT CULTURE OF MAKING

Through over 15 years of innovation in Architecture and Design education, we’ve been developing a rich design culture based on making, testing, remaking, experimenting, and critiquing. In our extensive fabrication laboratories, you’ll join this vibrant culture of design, through an array of digital and manual fabrication technologies, as well as a fully-equipped fashion studio and tech lab. You’re not just enrolling in a program—you’re joining a community of designers, makers, dreamers, and doers. Together, we foster an environment where innovation thrives and where you can unleash your full creative potential.

CREATIVITY FOR GOOD

Your creativity can change the world. It’s our job to help you do that. We help you understand and refine your creative abilities through a series of project-based fashion design studio courses: hands-on exercises that will stretch your imagination, and help you confront the complex array of material, economic, social, and cultural factors that surround and inform even the simplest garment.

SUSTAINABILITY AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILTY

We believe good fashion design is, by definition, sustainable. A good design must not only be aesthetically pleasing but must also be developed with consideration of its impact on the environment and the community. The fashion industry has a responsibility to consider its impact on the environment and for the people involved in all stages of production. That’s why we place material and social sustainability at the center of our approach. You’ll experiment with sustainable materials and processes, analyze the impact of supply chains and labor conditions, and examine how good design can do good things for individuals and for the planet.

FASHION TECH AND CRAFT

Fashion technology is both traditional and cutting edge. We believe that the leaders of tomorrow’s fashion world must be able to navigate a range of crafts and technologies from digital fashion and AI to hand-stitching and draping. In each semester, you’ll participate in a garment construction and craft workshop that helps inform and execute your design work.

THE BUSINESS OF FASHION

Building on IE’s half-century of innovation in business education, this program takes an entrepreneurial approach to design. In our fashion business module, you’ll build a strong foundation for your career in the world of fashion, with coursework on fashion production, distribution, marketing, sales, e-commerce, and start-ups. You’ll also start building and refining a brand as you develop your final thesis collection. In order to make a difference, you need the business skills to help implement your vision, and we’re here to help.
