As part of the MA, the student designs and creates 3 exceptional silhouettes (cocktail, evening wear and wedding) as well as 6 imposed projects. The free silhouettes are made in standard Haute Couture size (T36).

In March of the2nd year, the student is invited to present his creations in a school showroom during the Paris fashion week (fashion week). A scenography of the collection, the shooting of the models as well as a professional portfolio completes his work.

From March, students complete a mandatory internship of at least 4 months.

The course of Decorative Techniques and embellishment is taught by professionals of Metiers d’art who present their techniques; they may consider it appropriate to organize a hands-on workshop around a particular technique. The other courses are given in the workshop, with the professors succeeding each other as the projects progress, depending on the needs of each student;

Apart from seminars where students carry out the same project imposed, each student works his own creations and benefits from an individualized follow-up adapted to his professional project and his expectations.

The construction and technology course articulates the students’ work around a research work on bust, volume and its translation into flat-cut.
