At the heart of a European textile capital, ESMOD Lyon benefits from the region’s silk heritage and, has a privileged place in a region that is very invested in raising its international profile, redoubling its efforts to internationalize its industries and educational offerings. ESMOD Lyon hosts students from around the world, contributing to the cultural vitality of the region. The municipality of greater Lyon (“Grand Lyon”) has given ESMOD Lyon invaluable assistance, increasing our visibility and standing, both at regional and international levels. 

Located at the peak of the historic fashion and design quarter of Croix-Rousse in the 1st arrondissement (district), ESMOD Lyon has renovated and moved into the former Museum of Telecommunications, restoring this architectural pearl with sensitivity and intelligence. In imbuing it with new life as a model of eco-urban development, our intent is to enhance the daily experience of its users, our students and staff, to spur and develop their creativity.  We chose to preserve essential historical features of the museum, including some colorful graffiti, and recycled a section of metal framework as the reception counter. Leaving many elements as bare as possible, exposing raw ceilings, walls, pipes and concrete floors gives this 2-story art deco gem a contemporary feeling. From the wide central reception area, you discover the funky geometric spaces which house student and visitor services. Two internal stairways and an elevator take you to stunningly spacious, sunlit classrooms where our 2 training programs allow for an osmosis of fashion design and marketing that cover all the fashion professions: Fashion Design & Creation (ESMOD) and Fashion Business (ESMOD Fashion Business). Conferences, meetings, shows, and exhibitions are held in the grand (350 square meter) multi-purpose hall on the ground floor. through the osmosis of fashion design and marketing floor. Students and teachers enjoy the fresh air and beautiful 360-degree views of Lyon from two large roof terraces.
