Fashion management is the art of taking a designer’s vision from paper to the runway to the racks and, eventually, into the wardrobes of customers around the world. ISDI’s Fashion Business Management program gives students a deeper understanding of the business of fashion and what it takes to create successful fashion products.

The 11-month post graduate course immerses students into the world of fashion, giving them an in-depth view of the intricacies of the business, of how successful fashion brands are built, of the business processes and science in retailing and merchandising. The program will turn students into masters in fashion management, giving them the tools and capabilities to turn ideas into products and designs into consumable fashion. They will learn to combine creativity with market analysis and business strategy.

The classroom training is complemented by hands-on learning in our studios and internships at some of the biggest names in the industry.
