“Style is definitely a combination of place, occasion, surroundings, body and mood. You can’t buy style and you can only slowly learn it.” (Sienna Miller)

Founded in 2015, the MDC Fashion Design College in Dusseldorf is a private & vocational fashion school with a focus on fashion design. The MDC is one of the best addresses for preparing yourself for one of the many diverse career options in the fashion industry. Our goal is to train you comprehensively from day one, and above all, to meet the needs of the current job market. All our classes are carried out in small groups and in a pleasant and inspiring atmosphere.

The advantage of our small class size, compared to crowded course rooms in other institutions, is the ability to individually cater for our students. In this way, efficient learning success is achieved in close cooperation with the lecturers.



We pay close attention to establishing a broad and solid foundation in the fields of craft, technology and design. The syllabus is fashion disciplined and internationally oriented. At MDC young and creative people are taught by outstanding teachers and trained as international fashion designers. We work together with qualified and international lecturers from the industry and trade. They are all specialists in their disciplines and come from a wide variety of professions such as fashion design, textile technology, cutting design, industrial manufacturing technology, visual communication as well as the humanities: philosophy, politics and economics.


During the 3-year training period, which includes an 18-week internship we will thoroughly prepare you for your future job in the fashion world and give you the tools you need to build a successful career in fashion design.


Our partnership with three private universities in Dublin, Berlin and Frechen (Cologne) also gives you the opportunity to earn an academic bachelor’s degree, parallel to your education, or after your graduation.

The MDC is accredited and, according to article §118, section 1 of the Education Act NRW, is recognized as a vocational supplementary school by the state of North Rhine Westphalia.
