The Centro Superior de Diseño de Moda de Madrid (CSDMM) is a Private Centre for Higher Fashion Design Education, with the support of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) and depends on the Foundation for Design Promotion in the Madrid Autonomous Government, (FUNDISMA) presided by the Chancellor of the UPM. From 1986 the CSDMM has been focused on education, investigation and formative update in creation, management, production and promotion of fashion design field.

The CSDMM has built its reputation on a close relationship with the professional world of fashion and in our tradition as an institution of reference in Fashion education in Spain. We train designers since 1986 but also maintain a synergistic relationship with professionals. Members of the Board of FUNDISMA are all from sectors of Creation and Fashion Industry, major Professional Associations as ACME and ASECOM and fashion media and magazines.

The CSDMM forms Fashion Design professionals with solid skills for a full integration in the fashion creation, the industry and in all the related areas, as well as the adequacy of their labor to the new circumstances of the fashion system, production and international market. The educational methodology is mainly practical, promoting autonomous work, workshop practices and creative project development as fundamental routes in future designer´s learning process.


The Erasmus+ Programme aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernising higher education across Europe and the rest of the world. It gives students and staff opportunities to develop their skills and boost their employment prospects. Good practices will be shared between universities and businesses in Knowledge Alliances.

Higher education institutions from participating countries can work with those from neighbourhood countries, non-EU Balkan countries, Asia, Africa and Latin America to develop their educational systems. More information about Erasmus + Programme

In the year 1992-1993 the ERASMUS + Bureau granted to the CSDMM, as coordinating center, the first Interuniversity Program of Cooperation (PIC), with financial help to expire with the Program of Students' Mobility (SM) and of Educational Personnel (TS). Since then and up to the date, the CSDMM has increased progressively its Mobility Programs, beginning the relation with one university and supporting nowadays exchange with eight European centers.

STUDY PLAN 2015-2016

Since 1986 the CSDMM has been pioneer in Spain in Fashion Design training. Innovation and tradition, creativity and art, have been the keys to our history that is renewed with this new university official certification of degree.

In 2014-2015, CSDMM started a new Study Plan: a BA Degree in Fashion Design with a new curriculum. So in 2015-2016 only will be offers two courses -1st and 2nd- of the new Study Plan, and continue the 3rd and 4th courses of the previous degree: High Studies of Fashion Design.

Both study plans are made up of a teaching process closely linked to the social and industrial reality of fashion. It covers theory, technology and practice in great depth. The training model from which the Study Plan evolves, corresponds to an overall scheme in which the creative aspects, developed by a specific methodology, are present just as much as the theories which make up the base concepts and the techniques which allow for the realization of each of the stages necessary in the carrying out of the design process.

The teaching method, with a limited number of students per course, allows for the nearly monitoring of the learning process and the supervision of each student's work, directing it in accordance with the student's individual aptitudes and abilities.


The Centre's teaching staff is made up of academics professors linked to faculties of the Madrid universities, and of highly qualified fashion design professionals. The management team employs the advice of designers, educationalists and Industries, to allow the university activities to be tailored to the dynamic and ever-changing fashion world.

The educational principles have always been based on the student strengthen in relationship with the professional fashion sector. We have great professionals who know first-hand production techniques and top designers which serve as a reference for students to dare to cross their creative boundaries.


The CSDMM, aware of the necessary multidisciplinary training of the future fashion designer, offers formative complements and activities to the students. Every academic year, the students present their work with exhibitions, catwalks, and stands in fashion fairs, and apply to national and international contests. The syllabus includes an internship period in fashion companies and designers' workshops, provided by the alliances that the CSDMM possesses with the most important companies, federations and associations of fashion sector, thanks to FUNDISMA.

The Erasmus student will be able to select others from the courses’ Curriculum Plan of the CSDMM (you must inform it to the Head of Study and Erasmus + Coordinator for the possible adequacy to groups and schedules).

  • All lessons are taught in Spanish.
