    I did one year there and...:

    *It costs much more than it's really worth...
    *If you are creative and want to start working it's a waste of time...
    *A lot of blabla bla, we collaborate with blablabla, stage here and there blablabla...and in the end...nothing...
    *Everyone that pays can do the course and that means that in one class there are to many diferent kind of people, on different knowledge levels..

    But I saw on your profile that you are really young so it could be a good introduction to fashion. Milan is a great city and I had one of my best years (so far) there...

    If you want to know something in particular pm me..

    good luck!

    that sounds so bad. their education programs (subjects, specifically) seem pretty interesting in their website and even more essential than those in other institutes such as Marangoni's. too bad they're not succeeding in execution. :(

    Hi
    I just finished my final thesis in IED (fashion stylist)-
    it was sooo bad experience here, I dont reccomend to anyone to go to study there.
    They take a lot of money , they dont help you with anything, they dont appreciate your work, and they support just italians - in case of finding some job opportunities after the school.
    In fact, after the 2nd year a lot of people just left to their cities because they werent satisfied with the course.
    The school is famous cause they spend all money on advertising but they dont even have money to fix the studio at school. I always had problems with taking models from model agencies after having said that i was a student of this school. Once, we had a shooting with the teacher - photographer from IED during our photography classes and after having brought pics to the agency they didnt give me models any more cause pics were sooo bad.
    There is no help with anyth- no contact with any showrooms, places to rent clothins, nothing.
    Tutors dont care anything about your work and then during the presentation of teh final thesis they dont even support you in any way.
    There are many stories to tell..but if you want to have some carrier in the future- I can guarantee ytou that this school is not gonna give you anything. It will just suck your money.
    Cheers

    What is the status of IED in the USA?

    And in the world in general?

    What is your opinion about the comunication and marketing of fashion?

    There are important contacts?

    There are a good job vacancies?

    I don't know if this is the correct thread to ask this in, but I'll give it a try anyways.

    Has anyone heard of IED? Especially the one in Barcelona? Is it a good school? It looks very modern and promising according to their website. They have fashion marketing etc., and it seems interesting, but I haven't really heard anything about this school before.

    Cado, your post was moved from other thread ... you can see some information here. I see that this information is old ... and they are talking about the one in Milan ... but I would think that if it's run by the same people .... it might be very similar.

    Ok, so I just read this thread. Is the one in Barcelona as bad? :( Has anyone here done graphic design or fashion marketing there before?

    Ugh, I'm so disappointed.


    Thank you, BetteT!

    IED Barcelona

    hi!
    I'm actually studying my last year of fashion design in IED barcelona.
    I undestand why people complain abouit it, sometimes it feels they care more about their own marketing than really listening to the students
    On my first year I felt somethings where a little bit random, but actually is not that bad.
    ok, quite expensive, but I have a wonderful time in class, as I'm studying in english we are just 8 girls in class and they help us with the thesis collection quite well
    Of course there is always some issues with some of the teachers, who doesn't argue ever?
    I know some girls from marketing, and they are quite happy with it, we had some classes in common during first year(marketing, history of art)
    and well, some people also comes because of the city, I'm spanish so for me it's different, but I guess it's quite exiting to come here and discover barcelona

    so, to sum up haha
    altough I want to move to london after finishing here, I think it's quite a good experience, and in barcelona IED is a good place (specially if you compare it with the rest of the schools that are the same or worse, and way less international)

    contact me if you need any help!
    [email protected]

    pd: a transfer girl from milano also told me the level there is lower or something, I really don't know the differences between the schools...

    IED Istituto Europeo di Design

    Hey!
    I'm thinking about starting a career in fashion and I've been considering some schools...
    Have you heard about IED Istituto Europeo di Design? In Rome?
    I would really like to have some of your opinions:
    what do you think about the school?
    Teachers? Courses? I know it's expensive, but is it really worth it?
    I would like to take the 3 year course of Fashion Stylism.

    I'd really appreciate your help. And thank you all in advance!

    :question:

    I'm planning to go there and do a Master in Fashion Communications. As far as I know it's a great institute, one of the best in terms of design. But I would love to hear an attendee's opinion!
