Program Description

Fashion design - Collection building - Spring Semester

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Milan


Focuses on the acquisition and development of design, knitting and tailoring techniques as well as an in-depth study of textiles in order to complete a “creative” collection project in menswear, womenswear and knitwear.

The semester is divided between practical courses covering technique and form such as drawing, knitwear, tailoring, materials and patternmaking and individual modules for the specific collection projects.

This program is intended for those with basic knowledge and skills in fashion design, good freehand drawing skills and mastery of Photoshop and Illustrator.

The “project work” semester is structured around courses that introduce the Italian design system, understanding company and marketing dynamics, analyzing current trends in interior design in terms of language, and understanding form and materials. Students will use their analytical skills and theoretical knowledge to develop and complete a hands-on design project as a final semester work.

The IED approach offers students the unique opportunity to work directly with industry professionals as part of their academic experience and professional development thanks to long-standing relationships with Italian fashion and design industry leaders.

This 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.
