Parsons Paris, the European campus of The New School’s world-renowned Parsons School of Design, has initiated a new online course for high school students, Inside the Business of Fashion and Luxury, a behind-the-scenes learning journey into the fashion industry. The course is being offered in two- or four-week sessions to suit students’ academic schedules.

Exploring the compelling history, trends, and culture of fashion, the multidisciplinary course is taught by acclaimed faculty members from Parsons Paris and features additional interviews and exclusive content by industry leaders from top Paris fashion and luxury brands including Louis Vuitton, Dior, and Balmain.

With 30-hours of immersive, interactive coursework, Inside the Business of Fashion and Luxury provides young learners unparalleled access to the global fashion and design landscape in a fun, supportive educational environment. Students learn from award-winning professors and industry leaders on a variety of topics and themes that create a solid foundation for a future in the fashion and design industries. The course culminates in the Parsons Paris Insider’s Challenge, where students can use their learnings from the course and their creativity to propose solutions to real-world fashion and luxury scenarios.

The new course features overviews of career pathways in fashion, luxury goods, accessories, and marketing; in-depth explorations of how sustainability, technology, and social issues are impacting the industry; and how brands can innovate and be successful in the 21st century. Students will also learn about the history of celebrated fashion houses, key elements that define luxury brands, and what makes a best-selling product.

“As Parsons Paris looks ahead to its Centennial in 2021, we are excited and proud to launch this new certificate programme for high school students,” said Florence Leclerc-Dickler, dean of Parsons Paris. “The programme’s innovative curriculum, insider’s perspective, and personal guidance from a Parsons mentor provides a highly engaging, one-of-a-kind experience for students who are interested in exploring a career in fashion and design.”

The multidisciplinary course combines one-on-one mentoring; fun, high production lectures; over 100 videos with fashion and luxury leaders and Parsons Paris faculty; assignments with individualised student feedback; and out of class discussions—all conducted online with user-friendly technology. Classes are led by Parsons Paris faculty members Eros Erotokritos, a fashion designer with two boutiques in Paris; Anna Krutiy, a marketing and product development expert; and Badara Ndiaye, an influencer and creative director.
