"Before a new collection arrives in the shops, be it haute couture or ready-to-wear, there is a team working behind the scenes with the brand artistic director. It is this work that interests us and which we teach our future fashion designer students. For three years, our students learn to create their own collection. They learn to analyze materials and fabrics to accurately calculate production time and cost. They study everything from trend studies to communication codes related to art and design. More importantly, we teach them what inspiration is and how to feed it. It is this personal research that is the basis of success."

The Europass Bachelor's in Fashion Design is a complete 3-year program that follows the European Bachelor's format. It is targeted at people with a taste for creativity and who are passionate about fashion.
The program is organized around theory courses and different thematic workshops. This allows students to get a taste and then perfect any one of the thousands of aspects of fashion design.
Our teaching approach is based on acquiring the fundamental techniques, creative research and developing students' own personal style.
As soon as they start, students are encouraged to try everything – from basic drawing to fashion illustration. The program includes studies on material, fabric, space, color, prints, technical drawings and imaging software, without forgetting modeling techniques, pattern-making, cutting, molding and sewing.
The language of visual fashion visual communications is studied along with how to interpret trends and analyze style. The program also delves into the aspects of industry marketing and economics.
Through practical workshops, students explore a personal, creative and real technical research in apparel and accessories. They build the tools needed to make their own collection and this personal collection is presented as part of their final exam.
