In this course you’ll learn to win the hearts of consumers by developing innovative, strategic marketing and communication plans for the fashion industry.

Fashion is constantly evolving and reinventing itself so dynamic, enthusiastic professionals are in high demand in an industry where creativity, talent and passion are key. If this fits your profile, the Diploma in Fashion Marketing and Communication is the right course for you. 

You’ll start by discovering the basics of fashion, styling and business culture, laying solid foundations on which to build your learning experience. As the course progresses you can decide where you’re going to focus your career: in marketing, communication or both, choosing from a variety of profiles, or be a professional entrepreneur. 

Information to decide

You’ll find a mix of content that’s always up to date, and discover how different areas of fashion work, meeting professionals who’ve already made their name in the sector. 

Your learning objectives evolve during the 3-year course, adapting as new knowledge is acquired, to culminate in the final project for real companies working in the fashion industry. 

Our priority is on academic preparation so you can implement your skills in the immediate future as soon as you start work. That's why the course is continually updated and networking actively encouraged. 

We adopt a learning by doing approach, and focus on the interdisciplinary nature between the design specialisations studied at the school: Design, Visual Communication, Design Strategies, Fashion and Management.

If you want to work in the fashion world, but not in design, this is the course for you. 

Although it’s not a prerequisite, many students who enrol in the course studied Art or Social Science at high school and want to continue their studies, focusing their career on the fashion industry. 

When you’ve finished the course you’ll be ready to start your own company or work for a fashion brand in marketing management, online and offline event management, as a community manager or fashion editor, and more. 

We update the course to meet the needs of the sector as it evolves, so in IED classes you’ll always find the latest up-to-date information.

We also connect different subjects, giving you a broader perspective and a more comprehensive understanding of the industry to fast-track your start in the professional fashion world.  

What’s more, we created this course with a hands-on approach, configuring the subjects so you can internalise the theory you learn in the form of practice while gaining experience in real projects for fashion brands. 

The course lecturers are professionals who have already made their name in the world of fashion, so the networking you do as their student gives you a head start in your career.
