Take your passion for fashion and turn it into a profession, acquiring the knowledge you need to conceive, design and communicate your own creative universe.

This Master's Degree in Fashion Design at IED Barcelona gives you the tools and know-how you need for every stage of the design process, from developing the initial idea to creating your own collection. You’ll develop the communicative and strategic value of the product in the context of the brand.

Build solid foundations in the history of fashion and its context, learn the ins and outs of pattern making, printing, drawing, modelling, work on knitwear and sewing projects in experimental workshops, and master the production process. Apply the theoretical and practical fundamentals of Fashion Design; starting with an original concept, create coherent collections for a specific target.

The subjects in the syllabus are chosen to give you a comprehensive understanding of trends, economic mechanisms and communication strategies; in-depth insight into fashion that thrills, fashion for fashion lovers.
