Purity, intense emotions. It is not about design, it is about feelings”
We offer a strong training in order to enable students to face the challenges posed by the fashion industry today.
The Fashion Design students at ESADA work complete processes. First they define the identity and image of the brand or project; then they work in the design and fulfillment of a collection, and finally, they develop all the communication and distribution strategies.
The training courses go through Prêt-à-porter, Haute Couture, Accessories, Communication and Styling. They are also complemented by workshops, intensive workshops and real projects, where the students have direct contact with professionals of the sector, this approach generates a very real and practical work environment.
The academic program of ESADA puts in value the professional development of the student through real projects. In this way, the student will develop his creative profile and will be able to work and collaborate with real brands as well as with active professionals in the fashion sector.
Regarding job projection, students will be fully prepared after completing the degree to continue their development and training in companies and brands or creating their own firms.
ESADA is focused in the job placement of our students. Our students participate in different fashion design competitions, where the students' talent is recognised. With this we help to put into practice what was learned and from the beginning the students know the functioning of the labor market. Thanks to hard work, we are very proud to say that the students of ESADA have been awarded in many national and international competitions.
We organize presentation events and catwalks to accustom our students to work in a real environment, with their collections they learn to work in a team, and to focus on communicating their projects.

The access tests are divided in three different exercises. The first two develop during the first day of the call for tests and the third during the second day. Exercise 1 has a value on the final grade of 50% while the remaining two add up to 25% each, without having to approve the three parts to pass the exam.
