Why choose to study in Paris?

  • Tradition: Paris holds a special place at the top of the fashion and luxury world. Generation after generation, designers choose Paris to be their muse and birthplace of their works. 
  • Present: Paris' present is also compelling. As the world's fashion capital, the city is where twice-yearly fashion week, fairs and trade shows, fascinating concept stores, and industry leading trend agencies are. Major luxury groups such as LVMH, PPR and companies like Boucheron, Cartier and Baccarat all have headquarters located in Paris. 
  • Future: Paris also remains an essential stop for young fashion and luxury professionals who wish to understand where fashion came from and where it is going.


The Career Center is the essential liaison between our students, graduates and the fashion and luxury industry. Upon graduation our IFA Career Center closely assists students in finding jobs that suit their goals, skills and interests. In addition, current students and graduates have access to our database of internships and jobs opportunities and can be assisted when it comes to preparing for interviews and putting together resumes.

The best part about IFA is they have been provided with great professors who are ready to give their best. Currently, I'm enrolled at IFA and enjoying this journey of learning new concepts relating to the industry. I feel IFA can do a bit better concerning its organisation.
