PARIS, THE CAPITAL OF FASHION
Paris is the world's creative nerve center thanks to its history, schools, designers, and myriad of fashion trade shows: Prêt-à-porter Paris, Bijorca, Who's Next, Atmosphère, etc...
In September 2006, MOD'SPE Paris moved to a large (900 m²) town house at 9 rue Bleue, in the 9th district in Paris, an area which is part of Paris' historical garment district and where many fashion businesses still thrive. These historical and functional premises have furnished the means necessary for the school's domestic and international development. Within proximity to Le Printemps and Les Galeries Lafayette department stores, the school's new address offers easy access to key fashion locations.
