LISAA & Marie Claire team up for a fashionable new course!
For the academic year 2018, LISAA – together with the iconic decor magazine Marie Claire Maison – is offering an unprecedented training programme in Interior Decoration. Fashion, Style and Innovation Consulting applied to decoration, textiles and furnishings: the first of its kind!
A SPECIALISATION IN 14 MONTHS
The objective of this course is to train decorators, specialists in home forecasting, and experts in trends currently sought by trend forecasting agencies and design studios for department stores, but also collection designers for textile products. It will also train experts for press specialising in decor/homes and fashion and lifestyle brands.
I am delighted about this initiative – it’s a real launch pad for innovative professions.
Anne Balas-Klein, director of LISAA Fashion Paris
This 14-month course is aimed at students who have completed a three-year undergraduate qualification in applied arts (design, interior architecture, fashion design-pattern making, textile design).
Centred around practical applications, this course stems from the combined skills of the fashion and interior design/designschools at LISAA Paris. Indeed, the design of colour and material ranges,collections, separates or textile or decor objects is closely linked to the worlds of fashion and decoration.
On this course, French design and fashion culture feed into the programme and its creative energy.
Emmanuelle Torck, director of the Interior Architecture & Design School at LISAA Paris
The varied projects focus on the home, decoration of private or commercial spaces, and development of collections for home wear, table wear and small decorative objects. These also lead to thedesign of wallpaper, furnishing textiles or even flooring and wall coverings.
LEARNING WITHIN A COMPANY
The course allows students to follow two five-month work placements, and to also be employed full time in a permanent or fixed-termcontract. An ideal context, enabling students to broaden their knowledge and enhance their professional skills.
Each student benefits from one-on-one monitoring for the production of their professional project, as well as in their search for a work placement. A database of more than 1000 work placement offers per year allows students to find work placements that meet their expectations in trend forecasting offices/agencies (such as Peclers, Nelly Rodi and Promostyl), department stores (such as Galeries Lafayette and Printemps) or specialist press, of which Marie Claire Maison is a key figure.
The teams at Marie Claire Maison will have students work on concrete projects, immediately applicable to the world of homes, decoration and furnishings —an area which has seen remarkable growth overthe past two years.
