(google won't help me)
its usually specified by the university.
e.g. they may say you need to know a certain degree of french, or not.
or they may ask you to specify if you want a translator.

that maybe a stupid question, but i still need to clear out - if it is a postgraduate program of for example one year or 1,5 year so this means that you get a master degree or not? i am a bit lost with this french study system

Sorry can't help, Gian-franco.

Has anyone heard of The Paris Fashion Institute? They have month long summer programs in June and September.
Sorry if it's already been posted.
I know that Diane Pernet of A Shaded View on Fashion blog has taught there because she menioned it on her blog.

Any reviews?

Yayy, I sent my application to studio bercot and received a letter monday telling me they want to meet me, so they can get to know me and tell me about how the classes work. I'm so excited but kind of stressed :p I have to make a book to show them what I like and have done....

I go to Parsons and my sister goes to Marangoni, both schools in Paris. Feel free to send me a msg if you have questions regarding those two schools

Does anyone know if there's a fashion school on Rochefoucauld St? I remember passing by and I'm almost sure I saw one.

Anybody have any recommendations of a fashion school where they teach fashion history, etc. and where one does not have to be able to sew anything?

Oo what is Parsons in Paris like? Are they as good as Parsons in New York? Does it have fashion marketing etc courses or just design?

I just had my "rdv" at studio bercot for my application. I think (if I understand the process correctly) that I am in! It went very well, and I'm kind of surprised to hear someone that has seen Isabel Marant, Veronique Leroy and Gaspard Yurkievich make compliments on my stuff and on how cultivated and intelligent I am

If anyone needs info, I can try to answer them with what I learned and experienced today.

^Congratulations on that.
I was just wondering how much prior experience should you have? Do you need to know about sewing and things like that?

thank you

Well as far as studio bercot goes, I had to fill in a form and send it in. You have 10 questions mainly about what you like (music, photographers, designers, movies etc) and stuff like what is fashion for you? The last part is a drawing. On internet a lot of people say the paper and the interview are only formalities, but I think they are important to give an idea to the director. (like she told me my drawings werent impressive but that my answers were interesting) Anyway, I didnt write down that I had any experience in sewing or drawing (or making patterns) so I guess it's not an obligation. You'll learn that in the school, it may be just a bonus to know it already. But if you do sew a little, even without tons of technic, you should say it. It still counts.

Paris fashion schools for non french speakers.
Hi guys.

I have very basic french skills, but would love to do a short course or summer program at a fashion school in Paris.

Not design but maybe fashion business. Does anyone know of any more international schools in paris that dont require you to read or write in french.

thanks for your help :p

Wow, thanks for sharing Andrea! I'm thinking about applying to Studio Bercot for the fall but don't have a formal arts background, just a passion for fashion. Congrats on what sounds like good news! Good to know the drawings don't have to be necessarily good, technically speaking Do you know if they accept student loans or anything like that?

The director is more interested in the passion and motivation than stuff you'll learn there after. Like drawing, sewing etc (im still confused about the classes but if you wan i can tell you what she explained) and a huge plus is that we are from tfs, and know a lot! she was really impressed with the fashion knowledge i have, between magazines, photographers and designers. Tfs allows us to talk and learn about it all, so if you mention what you know, you'll get her attention

For financing, (first of all are you french? (im on my phone so i cant see where you're from --') the school doesnt have any special aids, but if you're french you may be able to find a special schorlarship which will help you pay if you dont skip classes, and get good grades, or if you're lucky they'll just give you the money with no conditions. Otherwise, banks can do loans, you'll have to pay back and probably with interest... :/
If you're not french, i dont know, but you can always check and see if there arent any schorlarships for students studying abroad.

(it would be so awesome if you were accepted too. keep me posted )
