    Course description

    Each fashion designer follows a series of steps in their creative process that serve to develop an idea, shape it and turn it into a product or a service that responds to the needs of the user and that is successful in the market.

    It is a personal process but it starts from a structured methodological basis that IED certifies as the key to success for designers. This design methodology is currently adapted to digital formats for collaborative work, making the online environment the new space for creativity and innovation.
