Faculty
  • The Spring Fashion Communication semester program forms the basis of the program by drawing together the various disciplines that make up the core vision of the program. Project work and collaboration with companies and industry professionals as the foundation of the IED philosophy.

    A prime example is the Fashion Communication and Events course, which in 2011 saw students develop, organize and produce a social media communication campaign and press release articles for Fendi’s special project series “Fatto a Mano for the Future”, during the Pitti Uomo fashion week. The event was created with Fendi and involved strategic communication and interviews carried out with new media instruments including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, YouStream and using Ipads, Iphones and other video sources to create a worldwide live participatory experience.

    This Fashion Communication semester program is open to current students, graduates and professionals seeking to define or acquire new skills and perspective. IED is able to provide further information regarding course content, facilities and faculty upon request. IED facilitates students spending a semester or academic year abroad by facilitating credit transfer in collaboration with the student’s home institution.
