Esmod Dubai Hosts Renowned Fashion Designer Alain Germain


French designer to guide students in creation of dresses inspired by famous 20th century artists










French Fashion University Esmod - Dubai, the leading fashion institution in the Middle East, is currently hosting renowned French fashion designer Alain Germain, who is engaging the students in a unique project that involves the creation of dresses inspired by illustrious 20th century artists. Select paintings of Picasso and other famous painters will be used by students as themes to create garments, which will also depict the cultural diversity of the 47 different nationalities at the University. The students of Esmod Dubai will be displaying their final creations at an exhibition organised at the University campus on Thursday, April 15, 2010.

Germain is known for his distinctive costume designs that are inspired by simple objects, household articles and paintings, which is a novel design concept for fashion students in the region. Last year Germain collaborated with Esmod Dubai for an ‘object costume’ exhibition where students had to create garments and stage costumes made up of common objects such as paper, glasses, plastic cups, ceramic plates, kitchen objects and even shoes.

“Fashion designing is all about creative expression and I believe that thinking out of the box opens unlimited opportunities for young fashion designers. This is my second visit to Esmod Dubai and I am impressed with the talent, creativity and enthusiasm of the students here. The University is offering them the right platform to nurture their skill and understand the nuances of the ever-evolving fashion industry,” said Germain.

Tamara Hostal, Director and Founder, FFUE, said, “Having world-renowned fashion designers such as Alain Germain closely interact with our students has tremendously benefited them as it has widened their perspective about fashion designing. Our underlining goal of exposing our students to works of international designers is to make them eventually stand out with their own distinct creations. I believe the most important thing that they would have learnt from Alain Germain is how one can create brilliant designs by creatively using simple, everyday objects.”

French Fashion University Esmod - Dubai is one of 21 fashion schools under the umbrella of Esmod International Fashion University Group, the world’s first and oldest fashion design school. Esmod Dubai offers a 3-years diploma program equivalent to a BA degree; publicly-accessible short programs and customized short courses in make-up and fashion.
