Furthermore, students will also explore the creation of hats and accessories, allowing them to create and market their first collection.

 

Thanks to our

Unique training

All courses are accessible on an online training platform.
 

Cléone’s interventions will be broadcasted through recorded video, and also delivered live.Throughout the training process, students will be expected to participate in online modules and produce books 

– that will ultimately be reviewed by the teaching team -.

 Each student will also have the opportunity to receive a personalized follow-up with Cléone.

Workshops will also be organized during the school year. 

These workshops will enable to verify the students’ achievements and will constitute 50% of the final mark of the end of each semester exams. 

A fashion show will also be organized face-to-face or digitally to close and validate the year.

A different approach

A complete training program which includes, (in addition to sewing techniques) 

– support for business creation –

 so that these new designers may launch their own fashion collections.

 

Eco-Responsible Engagement

We understand the importance of recycling and the discovery of new textile materials when it comes to how they can impact the environment. That is why ecologically responsible fashion is part of Cléone’s universe.

We want our students to realize that creating a line of clothing is also part of our consumption patterns, and that we always want to consider the limits of what our planet can offer and accept.
