Welcome to the Copenhagen Academy of Fashion and Design, here we offer an advanced internationally

recognised full-time course in fashion and design.

The course takes 2 years and upon completion a total of 120 ECTS-points is granted.

Copenhagen Academy of Fashion and Design has successfully, since 1983, educated new fashion designers.

Many of our graduates are currently employed in the fashion industry in clothing-, footwear- and

accessorie-design. Others work as costume-designers for film, theater or television, and some have

chosen to start their own brands/businesses with sales and production both at home and abroad.



A good designer must be able to


  • work innovatively
  • be experimental
  • cooperate with creative teams / production
  • be creative and search for inspiration
  • know all the aspects of the craftmanship.
