BA in Fashion Design and Pattern Making/Draping
In September 2011 ESMOD Berlin launched its 3-year Bachelor course in English for the first time. As the first University of Art for Fashion in Berlin to offer such a beneficial language choice for students, as well as with its worldwide network of schools, ESMOD Berlin provides an excellent international environment for students aiming to work within and make their mark upon the fashion industry.
The Bachelor of Arts focuses on both fashion design and pattern making/draping and covers in detail the practical skills involved in putting together a professional collection, as well as the theory behind fashion, textiles, art and culture. The course enables students to develop essential practical skills as well as professionalism and confidence through a compulsory practical internship at the end of both the first and second academic years. ESMOD Berlin also focuses intensely on languages, being the only fashion institution in Germany to provide their students with the option of learning Chinese and French, preparing students adequately for international career prospects.
Creation and creativity is dreaming up something no one has ever thought of or made before. At ESMOD Berlin you will acquire the fundamental skills, and apply them to ultimately establish your own sense of fashion and style. Students gain excellent command of ideas, theory, designs, fabrics, techniques, and colours and aspire to amaze even the professionals of the fashion industry with their unique and forward thinking way of expressing fashion. With partner schools in such fashion capitals as Tokyo and Paris, students are encouraged to take part in exchanges during the course in order to gain international experience and develop networks and industry contacts abroad. We work directly with professional fashion companies and professionals, preparing the students for the realties of the creative industry and helping build direct networks in advance. This is done through a series of lectures as well as workshops held by significant fashion companies throughout the academic year.
The course begins mid September each year and is full time. Students are required to attend lessons from Monday to Friday.
Candidate's applications are evaluated in chronological order upon arrival.
