IFM Accessories Program to begin with Fashion Design

Feb '08
The “Accessories” program (centred on leather goods and eyewear) will complement the “Fashion Design” program (centred on fashion and clothing).

From September 2008, the Fashion Design Postgraduate Program will equip itself with a new branch dedicated specifically to accessories. 25% of graduates of the Fashion Design Postgraduate Program are already working in the accessories sector.

This element, which has become a vital one, as much in the panoply of fashion as in businesses will bring forth tailor-made and high-level teaching that will address not only fashion designers but also architects and designers.

Since the opening of the IFM's Fashion Design Postgraduate Program in 2000, establishments such as Chanel, Hermès, and Louis Vuitton have been contributing to the production of prototypes of bags or shoes.

Companies such as Loewe, Mandarina Duck, Tod's have already been asked to work together with future students on IFM's new program.

This collaboration between industrialists and designers is the Institute's spearhead. It is unique in kind and aims at excellence both in exchange between designers and technicians and in the mutual will to head for more boldness and innovation.

The “Accessories” Program (centred on leather goods and eyewear) will begin with a module in common with the “Fashion Design” Program (centred on fashion and clothing) focusing on shoes, this module concluding with the production of prototypes with partner industries. Students will then make their choice between the “Fashion Design” and “Accessories” branches in November.

The calendar for the two programs has been synchronized so that managers and designers start their year at the same time, in September, which will promote links.

Furthermore, a new three-day module common to managers and designers will be set up on the theme of boldness in innovation (FunLab Workshop).

This module will be added to the existing workshops between managers and designers, that relate to brand creation and product marketing.
