yesterday i was lucky enough to attend an open house at a school in cannes, which specializes in fashion and costume design. (i met a few of the students at a party a couple months ago)
i was in awe, inspired and in love. i want to go here!
it's a regular high school, but also has prep school level, for university level classes.
the displays of their work were impeccable. each class project had a theme to inspire the work.
|could you imagine if this was your classroom! <3|
|children's summer dresses|
|candy and baked goods inspire corsets|
|the cupcake corsets!|
|t-shirts inspired by human anatomy - hearts, skeletons, spines, pregnancy, muscle tissue.|
|i thought this muscle one was incredible! my fave.|
|marina demonstrates a tee, the heart has a pump attached so it inflates and deflates with beats!|
|love the back of the peach dress.|
|virginie has a fitting in her creation. they have made the dresses first with muslin, as replicates of dresses from famous paintings, complete with corsets, bloomers and the works.|
|cleo shows her work.|
|marina and her dress. after the patterns are finalized, they will remake the dress again, using recycled materials!|
we're trying to organize a photoshoot for when the dresses are finished! i'm really hoping it works out, they are due only days before i have to leave france!
they have a store!
|i wish this was my closet.|
|lights in the halls are looong dresses.|
|some randomness above the main office.|
such a magical place!
