International Fashion Academy, better known as IFA Paris, was founded in 1982 and with campuses in Paris, Istanbul and Shanghai, its students now come from more than 50 different countries. The academy prioritises sustainability and fashion tech, with courses incorporating environmental and social perspectives and an organisational focus on CSR.

In 2019 the academy launched Foundry Powered by IFA Paris, the very first fashion tech innovation lab in France. Foundry is now a key part of the Paris campus, featuring a start-up programme as well as being host to a new MBA course in Fashion Technology.

This year, students of BA Fashion Marketing are learning about sustainable fashion, how to work with sustainable brands and exploring what fashion marketing looks like in an industry undergoing huge changes in its approach to ethics, environment and social responsibility.
