DESIGN YOUR FUTURE NOW!

BLENDED EDUCATION

This year we reviewed and renewed all our programmes to bring them up to date for studying and working in fashion, and we added the new dedicated Digital Design programme which introduces a unique route to becoming a fashion designer and completely focuses on digital development and output.

Blended delivery means that you will study online for about 80% of your time and for about 20% of your time you will be expected to come for scheduled periods to our school studio in beautiful Montreux where you can enjoy the beauty and the clean air of the Swiss Alps and Lake Geneva (this is Lac Léman in our native French language).  All programmes start with a one week visit to the studio to get to know us, your fellow students, and Montreux, and end with an assessment week also in our studio.  With easy connections to Geneva airport and excellent trains services to France, Germany, Austria and Italy, Europe is at your feet.
