the three schools Juliana mentioned above, are the most famous for fashion in Paris..
not sure, but i think Sorbone also has a fashion programe but its not about design, more on history/sociology of fashion.
Does anybody know about this Sorbonne program? I'm looking for a graduate program in Costume History or Fashion History. I found one at NYU, but I'm also looking for something in Europe.
just got an offer from IFM accessory MA , anyone will go there in sept?
Last week I got to know that I was accepted for the "Programme Postgraduate de Management Mode et Design" at the Institut Français de la Mode.
I got a master's degree in "International Relations" from Bocconi Business School in Milan (I'm from Milan) but, since I always wanted to work in fashion, I looked for an internship at CHANEL and then I thought I would study fashion management properly so I applied to the IFM and...here I am! Ready for Paris!
i'm living in paris!! yay!
also, i wonder if parsons is a better choice?
i hear there are big names coming from there.
also Chambre Syndicale was a big federation school,

but you need to understand french or have a translator (:
Does anybody know about Institutio Marangoni's reputation?
Since I'm starting there now my opinion might be slightly biased , but I've heard nothing but good things. What convinced me to start there is the list of alumni they have in the back of their catalogue (every single fashion house was mentioned).
- The fact that 95% of the students get a job directly after they've graduated, and it's a small school, has to mean something too!
^ I don't really know about the competition, don't think it's too stiff really. I think what can be difficult is that some programmes get full early on in the semester, so even though they don't have an application deadline it might be a good idea to apply early. I was lucky since I applied really late!
You only need a portfolio for the one-year and the master programmes, not for the 3-year ones. I just sent in a motivational letter and two recommendation letters along with my grades from high school.
I am also moving to study fashion design in Paris. What have you heard about ESMOD. Is it a good choice to study fashion deign?
ESMOD nolonger teaches the french method of pattern making but now teach the american method of using a block, which takes alot more time. My French teachers (who worked for designers in Paris) told me its rating has gone done and is now the "French version of FIDM".
