Fashion students from Dubai to embark on 10-day fashion tour to France
Mar '09
French Fashion University Esmod (FFUE) Dubai, the UAE branch of the pioneering international fashion institution, has announced that it is taking 23 students on a 10-day tour to Paris and Lyon to help them gain a more comprehensive understanding of international fashion trends. The France visit, which will commence on March 20, 2009, is in line with FFUE's ongoing efforts to broaden student knowledge by exposing them to global developments in fashion and art.

During their tour, the students will have a chance to visit exclusive fashion events, internationally renowned fashion houses and world famous cultural and touristic attractions based in Paris and Lyon. The students will visit Esmod Paris, Louvre Museum, HERMES workshop, Jean-Paul Gaultier exhibition, Vermont haute-couture embroideries, headquarters of Dior, Paris City Hall, Galliera Fashion Museum, Gallerie Lafayette, Yves Saint Laurent Foundation, Louis Vuitton House among others.

“We believe that no course in fashion would be complete without a visit to Paris, regarded as the fashion capital of the world. This trip will significantly broaden the students' perspective as they personally see the creations of some of the finest designers in the world, while also being able to learn first-hand about France's rich culture and heritage which have had a global influence.

The students will no doubt find this a truly memorable and enriching experience, and we are certain that they will be able to efficiently apply what they have learnt on this trip in their career as creative fashion designers,” said Tamara Hostal, Founder and Director, FFUE.

French Fashion University Esmod is the oldest and most prestigious educational institution dedicated to international fashion education. Founded in Paris in 1841 by Frenchman Alexis Lavigne, the school was the first to standardize couture by introducing iconic tools such as the mannequin and the measuring tape. FFUE operates branches in 20 countries and has trained several professionals who have gone on to work for international stylists such as Dior, Saint-Laurent, Kenzo, Paco Rabanne, Gaultier and Givenchy.

The Dubai branch of Esmod, currently the only dedicated fashion institution in the UAE, was opened in October of 2006. The local arm was established to tap the growing demand for haute couture in the Middle East.
