Academic research

Institut Français de la Mode develops research in social sciences and management in the fields of fashion, clothing, luxury, perfumes and cosmetics and design. It looks at the major changes in design, innovation, and the evolution of lifestyles and consumption. It provides in-depth analysis of the cultural, sociological, stylistic and economic trends at work in the creative industries, exploring in particular new functional logics and the contribution of new technologies. Through its PhD program offered in partnership with University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, young researchers are encouraged to approach fashion from a multidisciplinary angle. Here you will find some of our latest publications.
