Fashion students meet a team from Louis Vuitton
On Wednesday, 19th December, the students on the fashion and textile design option of the Art Foundation had the opportunity to present their work and to receive advice from former students now working at Louis Vuitton.
Among the six options offered as part of the art foundation at Atelier de Sèvres, the fashion and textile design option enables students to approach fashion design through the shape of clothing and the colours, textures and patterns of fabrics.
Experimentation is encouraged over traditional clothing assembling techniques. Using their methods, students create their own patterns.
Students who wish to continue in this field then prepare for the entrance exams to schools such as Central Saint Martins, Gerrit Rietveld Academy and la Cambre.
To close the first part of the year, students on the fashion and textile design option welcomed three professionals currently working at Louis Vuitton:
- Emma Murat, director of the accessories department, Central Saint Martins graduate.
- Edouard Bertrand, alumnus of Atelier de Sèvres, Beaux-Arts of Paris and the French Institute of Fashion, now bag designer.
- François Xavier, Atelier de Sèvres alumnus, currently in the second year at Central Saint Martins and trainee.
They came to answer students' questions and advise them on their portfolio, which will form the basis of their application for art and fashion school entrance exams. It was a very special moment for students who are now starting to prepare for their first entrance exams.
