preparatory cycle


The Bachelor’s programme in International Fashion Design, in Paris, the capital of Fashion, trains students in three years for the design of fashion and luxury products. Throughout the Bachelor in Fashion Design, you will develop your skills in Fashion Design and Model Making as well as your fashion culture and your knowledge of French techniques. Three intensive years during which you will discover all the fields and professions linked to Fashion Design and you will broaden your artistic culture, plastic and applied arts, your fashion culture and the history and current trends.

The development of each student’s creative personality is the guiding principle of ISAL PARIS learning. Through multiple exercises and bridges between courses and programmes, each student has the opportunity to enrich their knowledge and bring their creativity to the fore while taking advantage of opportunities and trends, taking into account market and marketing constraints, to develop their own brand identity.

Fashion design requires a precise knowledge of techniques, pattern making and graphic design. This is why at ISAL PARIS, each student is individually accompanied in order to progress throughout their course in the know-how to be consistent with the expectations of clients and companies, both in France and internationally.

A team of professors specialised in the creation and design of fashion, clothing and accessories, supports and accompanies the students during their development to make them autonomous in the company and help them choose the path that best suits them.

Professional integration is a real asset of the International Fashion Creation Bachelor’s degree. Each year, internships in companies allow students to prepare for professional integration and to put their know-how into practice, to confront the reality of the market, by accumulating nearly a year of experience throughout the programme.

ISAL PARIS maintains a constant effort to maintain and develop its network of companies and professionals in the fashion and luxury industry and to accompany and coach students in their endeavours. Regularly in contact with several hundred companies, ISAL PARIS offers its students a unique and personalized support with the objective of training them as close as possible to the expectations of professionals and major players in the Fashion and Luxury industries.
