The Ecole Nationale de Mode et Matière – Paris Fashion School by PSL aspires to train the fashion and textile talent of the future.

Uniting the expertise and know-how of three prestigious institutions – EnsAD for design, MINES ParisTech for innovation, and Paris-Dauphine University for strategy – the Paris Fashion School by PSL respects, in all of its programs, the principles on which it was founded: creativity, strategy, and innovation.

Master’s Degree

An international course of the highest level, taught in English, will be offered beginning in the fall of the 2017-2018 academic year with a first matriculating class of a dozen students.

The 2-year course will combine workshops developing knowledge about the design and crafting of clothing and accessories and of materials/textiles; it will also address marketing, strategy, and business creation, manufacturing, law, and new materials.

Students will participate throughout the year in workshops with invited designers and creators around a specific fashion-world figure, each entering class having its own patron.

Trans-school modules

The trans-school modules bring together students from the Master’s programs of the Paris Fashion School, MINES ParisTech, and the Master’s in Marketing & Strategy at Paris-Dauphine University. Working either on commissions or on a freer basis, a group project bringing together students from different backgrounds is conducted autonomously.


The course will include internships.
The end of the first year of study is dedicated to a 3-4 month internship.
A second internship at the end of the second year may be considered.

The second year will mainly be focused on the student’s Grand Projet (diploma project).


After the successful completion of the 2-year course of study, including final examinations and the Grand projet (60 ECTS per year), students will be awarded a degree from PSL-Ecole Nationale de Mode et Matière as well as national Master’s.
