See your designs on the catwalk
The highlight of the course year is the annual fashion show in the summer semester, which runs parallel to Berlin Fashion Week. Students work all year to present their own haute-couture designs. You can look forward to your first catwalk show and feel the goose bumps on your arms as the models display your designs for the first time to a real live audience.
During the course of the studies there are also possibilities to attend workshops in Freiburg or Paris and to make contact with company representatives directly at each location. Taking part in joint projects with students from the Paris or Nantes locations is also possible and there are also opportunities to spend a semester on either French campus.
