Paris is the capital of fashion and since MODESIGN ACADEMY’s Director studied at the Institut Français de la Mode in Paris and worked there several years, it seemed logical to organise a one week Summer Classes in Fashion/Design/Perfume and Luxury Management in this city.
This is the program of Summer Class 2017. The program 2018 will be basically the same.
The morning will take place at the Institut Français de la Mode (IFM) where Adeline Cabale, alumni from the IFM, will introduce you to what retail is and give you a view on the lasted trends in the field.
In the afternoon, she will make a guided tour with you at Galeries Lafayettes and Printemps. She will introduce you to people working within those 2 big department store and you will train yourself with practical exercices on the field.
Paris is the capital of luxury, so the best place to start that day is Avenue Montaigne and Rue François 1er where all the luxury brand have their flagship store. You will visit some of them and especially the Christian Dior one which celebrates the 70th anniversary of the brand.
Paris is also the capital of influencial multibrand stores such as Merci. Adeline Cabale will take you in a “Must-See” guided tour of those shops that spot the trends before the others or just make them!
Perfume is another speciality of Paris and you will visit the brand new Grand Musée du Parfum in the morning which is settled in the former house of Couturier Christian Lacroix.
In exclusivity for us, the Fédération Française du Prêt-à-Porter féminin opens its door the unveil what are their tools to support brands and emerging brands.
In the afternoon, you will visit selected ateliers in Paris to see what is the reality behind the curtains.
In the morning, the Fashion Historian Lydia Kamitsis will tell you all about Paris as the Capital of Fashion for the last two centuries and how it has always been a city welcoming the talents all over the world. The classe will take place at the IFM.
To conclude this week, you will visit the Yves Saint Laurent Fondation.

By Kristin Jennen : “The summerschool in Paris provides an excellent view on fashion and the behind the scenes of luxury in Paris. We covered different aspects of it and got lots of insight information in the luxury stores itself. Because of a variation of visits, classes and information on the Parisian market, in combination with the nice company of the group, this was for me the perfect chance to see and visit Paris from another perspective.”
