Hey Mathew!

The main difference is that "fashion design, fashion clothing and accessoires, pattern-making" is a 3 years program, in french and the "French Fashion Design" is a 1 year program, in english.

The subjects are basically the same, but in the 3 years program you have more time to study everything... I'm really liking the French Fashion design program, I have an amazing teacher wich works at Promostyl and I'm learning sooooooo much with her!

If u want any other infos, tell me ok? Maybe u can send then an email and ask for the courses catalogue... is better than the website!

Hope I've helped

A question on L'école de la chambre syndicale de la haute couture française.
I'm very interested in applying in this school in Paris, is it a place where haute couture is extrictly all they do? i know Issey Miyake is a graduate from there, and he doesn't really do haute couture now, in fact i kind of am into the same style of use for garments as he does. Avant garde that can be minimalistic, and some borderlining couture. Is this place good for that also?

Does anyone have any info on this school? (any info!) people who studied there, or know about this place, please share your comments. It'd be highly appreciated onmy research

fondly,
aldo

I think there are TFS members from this school. I remember seeing one in the Alexander Mcqueen f/w 07 thread recently... Try going there and check the profiles :p I'm interested in this school too, although I'm not going to apply just yet
The school also has a website, aldo

I've been to their website already, and by looking at their defilé de la fin d'année, it doesn't seem like you must do only couture (phew!)

What year are you interested in enrolling? i was looking at ESMOD before but i think i'll enjoy la CSCP more.

yeah i'm sure there are some people here who can enlighten us

what is ESMOD... I actually don't know much about any of these schools I think I have just seen something on the school on tv and it interested me--there were a bunch of people beading costumes for a play... all by hand, it looked very extravagant. So I thought the school must be very big on handcraft...

I sent you a PM

thanks Lena, I will use the search thingy more often

The alumni at chambre syndicale is pretty impressive compared to Esmod, i kind of found LCS a bit more suitable for my expectations in french teachings for fashion. i just would like to gather information on la chambre syndicale before applying..i'm about to apply!

anyone else applying there this year?

I'm studying at CSCP in Paris at the moment. It is definately *not* all haute couture there- they are very aware of the fact that the industry is 99% ready-to-wear, and the students work at their own taste level/ price points (which you can't *teach* anyway). I would advise being at least conversant in french if you are considering going there- you can stumble along with less, but you miss a large part of the education and the life of the school. One of the advantages of CSCP is that it is a fairly small school and the students and teachers really form relationships, unlike ESMOD, which is a massive institution. Anyone who has more questions about chambre syndicale, feel free to ask.

Ben merci Megan Patricia!

I really liked reading your post, especially when i read good things about a place i'm interested in going. I'm almost fluent in french, and can speak it fairly fast, i simply adore that language, and part of why i want to study fashion in Paris, is to also be surrounded by the culture. I know i'll love it, i just have to get accepted first, is it very hard to get accepted? and what do they usually look for in applicants?. I asked them in an email whether they have a deadline and when it would be, and they didn't answer that part. Phew, at least they didn't say that they're no longer taking applications.

I guess i do have a few little questions, such as how many hours a week do you attend class? how often do you have projects/homework? and what kind of work or projects is it? (i'm planning to also work part time whilst studying there, maybe only work 20 to 25 hours a week) i hope i can survive with such worktime! (i'll be a waiter most likely).

How do you feel about attending that school? how are the connections with other students? how likely is it to find work in Paris after graduating? i guess these are the things i wonder about the most, plus you're the first person i hear that goes there. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Bonne chance!
aldo

aldo, i'll reply to your questions as best I can- I integrated into their 3rd year after winning a competition which gave me a scholarship to go there, so I don't have the absolutely typical students view of it, but I don't have the impression that it is super super difficult to get in. Schools like Chambre Syndicale are private, and very expensive for a typical french person, which cuts down on competition and demand somewhat.

I have been in class an average of 32 hours a week, not including homework, which there is a lot of. They work a lot there, and whether you will have time to work a job on the side is a matter of your time management skills.

On the whole I am pleased with my experience there- they are very strong on technical things like draping and prints/embroideries. They are less strong on the design end. The teachers are nice, and helpful. The studios close at 6 pm sharp and on weekends, so any sewing or draping you want to do outside of that you have to do chez vous. Whether there is a chance of your finding work in Paris afterwards I dont know. If you are not from the European Union, it is very very difficult with visas and all that. There is also the fact that everyone comes to Paris looking for work from all over Europe.

All in all, I am sure if you go there you will gain a lot from the culture and education, but I don't see many people acknowledge how incredibly tough the fashion industry is, even at the school level. It's not for the faint of heart. I wish you the best of luck and fabulous adventures!
