ESMOD on the runway at Texworld

In the interest of promoting the exposure for the young talents of the oldest fashion school in the world, ESMOD has fostered its long-standing partnership with the Texworld salon. Thanks to this collaboration, ESMOD was able to send the designs from the class of 2019 down a runway fit for the disco era, on April 11th. Between the bright colors and metallic surfaces, the pieces that were shown featured architectural lines that demonstrate the mastery of the infamous ESMOD technique.

ESMOD Student Talents on Display at TRANOÏ

The TRANOÏ salon invited ESMOD to display the designs of several different students around the beautiful Brongniart Palace. Each student design fit into the event’s Neo-Casual theme, whether a part of a streetwear collection or a tailoring revisited concept. All of these student works impressed the French and international visitors alike during the 4-day event (from Feb 28th to Mar 2nd.) We are proud that this wonderful partnership allowed for some important exposure for the young talents of ESMOD! 

A Day Dedicated To Eco-Responsible Fashion at ESMOD Paris

As we face rising rates of consumption, the fashion industry is being forced to evolve, to rethink its role, and to transform itself in order to become more eco-conscious and prioritize ethics.

ESMOD believes that this revolution must be a part of the education of a young, future designer from the very beginning: at school. This is why ESMOD is committed to taking action by teaching its students the best practices and giving them access to the most innovative research and development within the domain of responsible fashion.

ESMOD presents its « Fashion Business Development Certificate » in partnership with cnam

15 years ago, while the fashion industry was starting to reinvent itself by shifting its practices, ESMOD created a partnership with the Conservatory of Fine Arts (CNAM) in order to offer a complementary certificate program to ESMOD alumnae and industry professionals which would focus on innovation and management within the fashion industry. Thus, the Bachelor of Innovation Management in Fashion degree and Fashion Business Development within the Business Manager MBA (overseen by AMBA) was born. Last month, these programs celebrated their 10th anniversary.

Happy Holidays from ESMOD !
