About Paris Fashion Institute

Paris Fashion Institute hosts an intensive four-week program. Seminars are held during June and September. All classes are taught in English.

Qualified candidates come from all corners of the globe. Many students come to us who are currently enrolled in fashion design or merchandising/​marketing programs. Others come after having entered the marketplace in totally different career paths only to realize their true passion is in the fashion industry.

Paris Fashion Institute acts as a hands-on guide for a professional living textbook of fashion creation, history and marketing; it utilizes the enormous range of assets available only in Paris, fashion capital of the world.

Students are taken beyond the surface glamour and exposed to the day-to-day workings of the industry. From an honest, generous and open vantage point the doors into this exciting and intoxicating world are thrown open to our students, with field trips to venues which reveal a multitude of possibilities pertinent to the industry.

Paris Fashion Institute was established in 1976, utilizing the special opportunities to fully explore the creative process that only Paris offers. It is the only school offering both fashion design and marketing and merchandising disciplines as a joint entity.

“If there is a heaven for fashionistas, Paris Fashion Insitute must be it! Must attend if you want to pursue a career in fashion :) I wish the program would have been longer because it is truly one unforgettable experience. Not only were the teachers fabulous, but the field trips were unbeliev­able! Given a choice, I would do it all over again! Miss you PFI!” Anna Henares
