ESMOD Rennes promoted fashion in a big way this year with the launch of the first Fashion Festival at the Parc des Expos in Rennes on the 22nd and 23rd of June. The festival was open to the public and featured the talents of young designers who had the opportunity to present their talents before design and pattern-making companies. In addition, there were several talks that took place featuring representatives from Uniqlo, Dior, Comme un Camion, ESMOD Academy, ESMOD Editions, etc… The festival also featured a history of fashion exhibit which spanned from the 19th century to present day. Several fashion shows took place as well over this multi-day event, all of which featured the designs of ESMOD Rennes 1st and 2nd year students as well as collections from ESMOD Paris’ 3rd year students. The passion for fashion was palpable throughout this wonderful event, and opened many young people up to the possibility of a future in the illustrious industry.
