Back to School Schedule 2020

After a year marked by extraordinary events, it is time to think about the start of school and the return of our students to our different schools in France. All the end-of-year juries were moved to September, at the same time as our start of the school year, for which you will find all the dates below. Our schools remain at your disposal for any questions at the usual phone numbers. We wish you a great summer while waiting to receive you in September in conditions that meet all the health requirements provided by the French governement.

Admissions to ESMOD extend this summer!

It is not too late to register for ESMOD to follow one of our diploma programs in the year 2020-21. The current health context has postponed our September returns, thus extending the recruitment period. The admissions teams from our schools welcome you this summer, by appointment only, to inform you about our programs or visit our premises:

ESMOD participates in solidarity projects during confinement

Since the beginning of confinement, a number of charitable companies have made use of the talents of young seamstresses in service of caretakers and individuals by committing themselves to manufacturing protective masks and gowns. ESMOD has not failed to join in on these efforts and appeal to the forces of fashion in its community.
Social networks are full of tutorials on how to make masks for the general public and healthcare workers.
Today ESMOD presents its official tutorial to make masks that meet the current AFNOR standards.

Develop you Fashion culture at home

It's a harsh reality to live in a city where all of the fantastic museums are closed for the duration of a confinement that continues to last! Fortunately, technology comes to the rescue and brings some culture to your home, in a digital form.
We have found that many of the exhibits scheduled for spring 2020 are now accessible online via the museums' websites: Pompéi at Le Grand Palais, Figures d'Artistes at Le Louvre...

Our Office of Admissions is still open!

In light of the exceptional circumstances through which we are all living, our priority is to preserve the health and well-being of everyone. With that in mind, we have closed all of our campuses in accordance with the decision made by the French government. 
However, we remain committed to offering the best service possible within the context of this unique situation. We are therefore happy to announce that our Office of Admissions is staying open, but completely digitally!

ESMOD on the runway at Texworld

In the interest of promoting the exposure for the young talents of the oldest fashion school in the world, ESMOD has fostered its long-standing partnership with the Texworld salon. Thanks to this collaboration, ESMOD was able to send the designs from the class of 2019 down a runway fit for the disco era, on April 11th. Between the bright colors and metallic surfaces, the pieces that were shown featured architectural lines that demonstrate the mastery of the infamous ESMOD technique.

ESMOD Student Talents on Display at TRANOÏ

The TRANOÏ salon invited ESMOD to display the designs of several different students around the beautiful Brongniart Palace. Each student design fit into the event’s Neo-Casual theme, whether a part of a streetwear collection or a tailoring revisited concept. All of these student works impressed the French and international visitors alike during the 4-day event (from Feb 28th to Mar 2nd.) We are proud that this wonderful partnership allowed for some important exposure for the young talents of ESMOD!
