A leader in art and design education since its founding in 1896, Parsons has cultivated outstanding artists, designers, scholars, businesspeople, and community leaders for more than a century. Parsons has had a presence in Paris since 1921. Students enrolled at Parsons Paris develop creative and critical thinking skills and apply them to challenges including environmental and economic sustainability and social concerns. Parsons’ network of interconnected design laboratories enables students to explore global phenomena at a number of sites and scales of engagement in on-campus research and initiatives with international partners that focus on urban life in Paris, New York, and elsewhere. Located in one of the most vibrant creative economies in the world, the program takes full advantage of Paris, offering extraordinary educational, cultural, and professional opportunities for the growing number of students who seek a range of experience in art, design, media, technology, and culture. Parsons Paris is in the process of developing partnership agreements with a number of cultural institutions and schools to promote and share its philosophy and foster the development of design thinking and process.

Paris, recently voted one of the best international cities in which to study, is home to cultural resources and artisanal traditions found nowhere else. A diverse urban center, it attracts talent from around the world—and offers a host of new perspectives to inspire and challenge you. Studying at Parsons Paris takes you out of the classroom and into the city, where you strengthen your studio skills and French language abilities as you develop your own global network. You may have the opportunity to take part in major Paris-based events including Paris Fashion Week and Paris Design Week.


Become a Designer Who thinks like an INNOVATOR At Parsons Paris, you’re part of a community of fearless thinkers, makers, and curators forging new creative practices at the intersections of artisanal culture, urban environments, sustainability, the sharing economy, and historical design. You learn to integrate critical thinking and studio skills, elevating design’s potential—and your value— in the global creative economy.

The Fashion Studies program challenges you to apply interdisciplinary methodologies to examine research themes including globalization, labor, and creative industries; sustainability and zero waste; fashion curating, heritage, and material culture; beauty ideals, diversity, and gender in fashion magazines; identity creation and everyday clothing consumption; and technological innovation and digital fashion futures.

You engage directly with the industry through lectures and master classes led by fashion practitioners; special projects with Parisian fashion brands; visits to European and Parisian fashion trade fairs, like Première Vision; and exclusive access and visits to the most prominent fashion and textile collections and archives in Paris and in Europe as a whole—from the Musée Galleria and MAD (the Musée des Arts Décoratifs) to the Fashion Museum of Antwerp (MoMu). You discuss fashion in seminar-based classes with established fashion scholars, develop practical industry-relevant skills, and produce individual and group projects and present them as exhibitions and publications. The program is of particular interest to students pursuing careers in academia, fashion communication and publishing, and the field of fashion heritage. Graduates become critical researchers and professionals whose varied skills and abilities enable them to lead across the spectrum of fashion industry positions. The Master of Arts in Fashion Studies program is a 42-credit course of study.
