print as in print design. don't go looking for anything resembling technology at Chambre Syndicale. There are schools that have silkscreen facilities, or even digital fabric printing facilities. If print design interests you, look for a school that has that stuff. Chambre Sydicale is a good-enough school with a prestigious name and contacts. That's pretty much it.

Ah so you're saying you don't actually do the prints or embroideries--you just design it. Thanks

ahhh..many many thanks Megan Patricia. Encore une fois

Your information has been very valuable, it's good to be enlightened about a place you're interested in studying, for me it's exciting to find out things about something i might be a part of. IF i get accepted. Which, i have a positive feeling about.

Are you done with LCS this year already? planning on staying in Paris when you finish?

again, thanks for the info and for taking the time.

gius- yes, we both design and make the embroideries. Anything that is done by hand we do. It's just that the school doesn't have the equipment for large-scale fabric printing. Most don't.
aldo- i am done this year- in june (light at the end of the tunnel). i want to stay in europe, not partic. attached to paris. glad to be of some help- i wished i had someone to ask about the school when i was packing my bags to come here.

I'm torn between Studio Bercot and CSM. I was wondering about the costs of living in Paris? Is it really expensive? I stayed in London for a year and that was crazy!! Studio Bercot sent me an application and it seemed alittle too simplistic. They didn't list the requirements for a portfolio they just asked questions on my finances, and who do I want to work with. Does anyone have the lowdown?

paris less expensive than london, for sure. however, a good rule of thumb with schools is the less they ask of you the less you can expect of them. keep that well in mind.

Thanks, since I'm planning to stay for a number of years, I'd like to go somewhere where I'm not struggling day to day just on living expenses alone.
I was surprised to receive the application from Studio Bercot considering I have read good things about this university.

^^^ I'm so with you on that. There isn't ANY information about submitting my portfolio which SURPRISED me. Studio Bercot and Chambre Syndicale are prestigious schools, I wonder why international student information is so vague?

Hi Mathew, i remember you

These schools in Paris are a bit on the leaning side if you write them in french, and good french may be a necesity in this case. Keep in mind that classes at these two very prestigious institutes are in french, so they want to make sure that their students can at least understand what they are about to teach. I very much recommend that (if you want to study at either of these two institutes) learn french.

ESMOD has a programme in english, and while you live in Paris and say take a year of the english programme, and learn french at the same time, which they do, ESMOD english programme also teaches you french on the side. After that year your french should be quite good, and then you can apply at studio berçot or la chambre syndicale.

I'm applying at la chambre syndicale just this week, my portfolio just got finished so i'm ready.

I think I will send my portfolio around may...and I'm not sure about the application of la chambre syndicale, becoz they didn't reply my e-mail and I've dl there application form, maybe I'll just send it with my portfolio.~

Good Luck!~Aldo
