bachelor degree in fashion, textile and environmental design

Under the supervision of Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée University. In partnership with the French Federation of women’s ready-to wear.

Aims

The vocational Bachelor’s in fashion design is a one-year programme, level II, which aims to train students directly for the workplace in the relevant specialised sectors of fashion design, forecasting and contemporary creation: fashion ready-to-wear or couture, textile design or craft, the fashion image or events.

The course begins with a period of creative research centred on a personal project and a dissertation. After that, students work on the conception of a collection and the development of a range of products, taking into account all that is necessary for their production, the finishing touches and media promotion.

Throughout the development of their project, students acquire skills in design and production enabling them to create a collection. Within the constraints of the workplace, they can strengthen their creative profile, manage a project and add to their work experience through long-term internships (for 12 to 16 weeks).
