Program of the 4th YEAR

This 4th year is a follow-up to the 3-year program.

There are many advantages to the 4th year of the fashion styling & pattern making program. During the year you will work in autonomy, and be coached by recognized designers through workshops, conferences and other projects. For the end of the year collection an external tutor will guide you.

Due to the revamping of our programs following our strategic alliance with Institut Français de la Mode, recruitment for the 4th year is no longer open to external applicants.  Admission is open to 3rd year students only, after selection by a jury.

Each class is sponsored by a Designer*, who coaches students on their individual final project.

*Jean Colonna (2011), Josephus Thimister (2012), Yvan Mispelaere (2013), Martine Sitbon (2014), Felipe Oliveira Baptista (2015), Lutz Huelle (2016), Lucie Meier (2017)



Courses are taught by active professionals, on a regular basis or for short lectures.

Didier GRUMBACH (Fédération Française de la Couture du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode), Barnabé HARDY, Alexandre MATIUSSI (AMI), JC DE CASTELBAJAC, Maurizio LIOTTI (Directeur des Ateliers et de la production DIOR)… and many more have come to share their experience and guide the students of previous classes in their projects.

This year is accredited at level II by RNCP (French educational system) granted by decree published in the Official Journal of 25th July 2015.
