    Master of Accessories Design

    The term "accessory" refers to an element that is subordinate or complementary to another. However, in the fashion world of today, it takes on a leading role of its own that is not subordinate to other garments.

    The Master of Accessories Design focuses on the design of objects that are becoming fundamental elements in the fashion industry. Accessories can be used for convenience, aesthetics or even be part of group uniforms, and they are the best-selling products of luxury brands.

    This programme offers students a journey through the creation of the most traditional accessories, such as handbags, footwear and hats, the design of products such as glasses and watches and includes the most modern accessories that incorporate technological innovation and development (wearables).

    With its mixed format, this qualification will allow all students to learn, participate and be part of the IED community in person, in the physical classroom and virtual classroom, and remotely.
