“Denim is the new black” Fashion show preparation

“Denim is the new black” – today we prepared what will be the Oxbridge Academie de Paris Fashion show 2018. Final touches on clothes, editing these very “conceptual” show invitations with scraps of denim inside of zip bags “Margiela like” and working on the choregraphy and music of the show. “Denim is the new black” was the title of the show selected by the students. Writing more than 100 invitations is a lot to do!

 

 

You are formally invited…

…to the Oxbridge Académie de Paris Final Fashion Show. The annual tradition is for students in the Major and Minor classes to showcase the work they’ve been doing all month by designing an outfit for a model of their choosing from the program. The show begins on Friday at 8 p.m. in the Auditorium. Families and friends who are traveling to Paris this week are invited, and all students are required to attend what often is one of the program highlights.

Students in the Major class are hand delivering the invitations and have unveiled the theme “Denim is the New Black.” Stay tuned later this week to see what they’ve created!

 

Fashion class at Yves Saint Laurent’s museum

Today the Fashion class visited the musée Yves Saint Laurent and discovered the history of the house. The students discovered his world from Yves Saint Laurent’s sketches, the developpement of his Haute Couture house with Pierre Bergé, to his wonderful designs inspired by his imaginary travels and historical references. Then the students walked on the famous Avenue Montaigne and spotted some Haute Couture houses such as Ungaro, Elie Sabb or Christian Dior.
