Overview

The Parsons Paris Online Program offers flexible, online courses in the business of fashion, fashion design and sustainability in fashion for high school students. You’ll hear from Parsons Paris professors, be mentored by a Parsons/The New School student or graduate, and earn a Certificate of Completion from Parsons Paris. 

The courses are 100% online and almost entirely asynchronous, meaning that you can complete the course whenever it works with your schedule. There will be 30 hours of overall course time over 2 or 4 weeks, depending on the session you choose, including video lessons, unit assignments, and live sessions with your mentor. 

The three courses offered are:

  • Inside the Business of Fashion and Luxury
  • Inside Fashion Design: Becoming a Designer for the 21st Century
  • Sustainability: The Future of Fashion

Inside the Business of Fashion and Luxury

Everyone knows the glamour of the fashion runway — but what makes it all work? This course takes you behind the scenes. Learn the business side of the industry. Discover the many careers available in fashion aside from design. Understand how brands and trends are created, how sustainable materials spur creativity — and the role of social media influencers. You will even virtually visit a Louis Vuitton workshop. See whether there’s a future for you in fashion.

Inside Fashion Design: Becoming a Designer for the 21st Century

Want to know how top designers come up with ideas? This course takes you through the process they follow. You’ll use the same process to develop a concept and illustrate your own ideas for a fashion line. Learn methods for pattern cutting, draping and assembly. Bring your ideas to life through storytelling, mood boards and video.

Sustainability: The Future of Fashion

Can fashion be both beautiful and sustainable? In this course, you will discover the innovative ways the fashion industry is responding to our ecological crisis. Learn about the life cycles of products, eco-friendly approaches to design, the upsides and downsides of “green” branding, and more. Develop your own vision of a sustainable future for fashion. Whether your interest is in design, marketing, or another field, if you are passionate about the creative opportunities possible at the intersection of fashion and sustainability, this course is for you.

Cost and Session Information

All course options, whether 2 or 4 weeks, contain the identical educational content, learning materials, number of assignments and access to mentoring. The difference in length of course is due to time of year (not amount of instruction). We know the school year keeps you busy, so we've made the course longer during that time so you can get assignments done.

Cost: $1195
