The Institut Français de la Mode brings together Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne and IFM..
Both schools have made their mark on the world of fashion. ECSCP has embodied excellence "à la française" since 1927 and IFM was a pioneer in fashion management education from 1986 onward. Today their union offers Paris a new, open-minded and visionary "grande école" which nurtures tomorrow’s fashion talents.
"The new Institut Français de la Mode is launching two new fashion design programs, Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts, immersed in the fashion ecosystem, and which actively promote links with culture and technical know-how.", says Dominique Jacomet, General Manager of the IFM.
In order to encourage social diversity and promote research and educational innovation, Institut Français de la Mode announces the creation of a Foundation under the aegis of the Fondation de France. The purpose of the Institut Français de la Mode Foundation is to support any project of general interest that helps to promote equal opportunities through a major scholarship scheme for students and the development of research and teaching chairs.
By Autumn 2020, all the programs of Institut Français de la Mode will move to the Docks – Cité de la Mode et du Design - in completely overhauled spaces of nearly 8,000 m², in order to quickly accommodate 1,000 students and more than 3,000 managers in executive education programs, as well as an academic and applied research activity.
