The development of didactic sessions, modules and activities of this Summer Course want to simulate the whole process and professional management inherent in a fashion project. In this way, the course is structured in different types of sessions::

Theoretical lessons

Bring professional information, up-to-date, as well as fundamentals to face the projects posed along the course. In addition, the program provides an extensive bibliography and attached documents with complementary readings.

Experimental lessons: case studies

In a professional context, to analyse and deepen into experiences performed by in-sector companies, is an essential learning. It is not about imitating their strategies, but analysing their fundamentals, applications, repercussion, market, etc., to deduce enough knowledge and analysis to face own challenges with confidence and knowledge.

Experimental lessons: projects

The goal of every Summer Course at IED is to end up developing professional projects, and that is why, all through the course, several practical exercises will be developed, revealing that the follow-up of the course is performed by “work in progress” dynamics. This activities will become a relevant initial contact with real cases that we can find in the professional world.


Some of the subjects, which have a high practical content, will be performed by workshops, practicing fundamental elements such as well-planned work teams, observing the defined briefing for each session.


Throughout the course, didactics will be completed with professional lectures, which put in touch our students with professionals from top-leading companies of the field. Undoubtedly, it is a unique opportunity to learn and contact with professionals from the different fields of fashion.
