    The AMD study program offers you a comprehensive perspective covering cultural history and fashion theory as well as materials expertise, product management, and communication. Through theoretical and practical modules, you will become aware of the fashion industry’s duty to promote sustainability within society and develop the specific skills required to realize your creative ideas. 


    We value and promote interdisciplinary exchange – for example at the AMD spring and fall academies. 

    Each semester begins with an academy. You will spend a week in interdisciplinary workshops with students from other semesters, programs, and AMD locations, tackling overarching topics such as design, photography/film/video, sustainability, project management, philosophy, psychology, and much more. 

    Experience working life first-hand even as a student and establish international contacts. 

    The AMD Akademie Mode & Design employs lecturers who have made a name for themselves in the fashion industry. Carefully selected projects and company collaborations will provide you with a detailed insight into the world of professional work. In the fifth semester, a six-month internship allows you to gain direct practical experience and explore some of the many roles involved in fashion design. 

    In the third or fourth semester, you can choose to integrate an optional semester abroad into your study program and attend one of our partner universities around the world. This will allow you to continue your studies while building a valuable international network that will aid you in your later career.  

    AMD also offers a German-language study program in Fashion Design: Mode Design (B.A.) is available in Berlin, Wiesbaden, Hamburg, Munich, and Düsseldorf. If you have the required language skills, you can even switch from the English-language program to the German program during your studies. 


    Curriculum Fashion Design (B.A.)


    Sustainability, virtual design, or something else? Choose your own focal areas

    In the fourth semester, you will select one of four majors to be completed over the course of two semesters. You can choose from the following interdisciplinary labs, which are also attended by students from the study programs in Fashion & Design Management (B.A.) and Fashion Journalism & Communication (B.A.) to promote inspiring exchange across subject areas:


    • Virtual Lab
    • Sustainability Lab
    • Staging Lab
    • Brand Strategy Lab

    The Virtual Lab is particularly suitable for Fashion Design (B.A.) students. This will teach you how professionals use digital tools to design items of clothing and even entire collections via exclusively virtual means – an increasingly common practice in the fashion industry.

    The Sustainability Lab also offers exciting insights for a career in fashion design. If you opt for this lab and attend a sustainability workshop during the AMD spring or fall academy, your academic transcript will show that you hold a degree in Fashion Design (B.A.), majoring in Sustainability.

    Whichever lab you choose, your advanced skills will qualify you for popular professions shaped by digitalization and sustainability. These include concept design, material research, and 3D product development as well as sustainability consulting, communication, and reporting.

    Career prospects

    Graduates of the study program in Fashion Design (B.A) have career prospects that are just as varied as the program is creative. After studying at the AMD, you will have a whole host of qualifications and, of course, all the skills required to create your own fashion designs – either with an established company or by setting up your own brand. But this is just one of your potential career paths after studying Fashion Design (B.A.). AMD graduates work for many prestigious fashion companies and labels, including Acne Studios, Marco Polo, McQ Alexander McQueen, Hugo Boss, Balmain, Dries van Noten, Isabel Marant, R13, Mulberry, JW Anderson, Iris van Herpen, Adidas, Jil Sander, Closed, Esprit, H&M, lala Berlin, About You, Cinque, Mytheresa, H&M, Diesel, Elle, and Vogue. 

    If you choose to work in fashion design, you will be responsible for the design, development, and material selection. If you enjoy media production, you could become a stylist for film and photo productions. Trend scouts seek out and analyze color developments, new materials, and contouring. Magazines, publishers, agencies, and labels need fashion design professionals to display fashion illustrations and create graphic representations of collections and visuals.
