Esmod Dubai students showcase talent in Paris
Dubai, July 26, 2011
Students of Esmod Dubai, a leading fashion school, showcased their fashion designing skills and creativity during the recent celebrations held in Paris to mark the 170th anniversay of Esmod International.
The elegant black and gold dress worn by the wife of Esmod International president Mary Nino during the event was designed by an Esmod Dubai graduate Wid Abdullah Rehaimi, who had recently won the fashion design award in the New Couture category in Dubai.
The celebration outlined the various innovations developed by Esmod founder Alexis Lavigne, including the souple measuring tape, the couture mannequins and the first ever pattern making method, which were all showcased at an exhibition held at the Gallerie Joyce in the Palais Royal in Paris.
This was followed by a high-profile international Esmod fashion show, for which 17 schools, including Esmod Dubai, were chosen and asked to design 10 dresses each to make a total of 170 creations that were all presented on the catwalk.
Esmod Dubai, which was given the theme ‘Start’ as a design inspiration, made a significant impact at the show through the creations of third year students Kay Li, Maimoona Harsha, Sabeen Mughees, Renuka Gandi and Budoor Abdul Qader. Budoor, an Emarati, also designed a special dress to mark the occasion.
Tamara Hostal, director and founder of Esmod Dubai said: “It is an honour for us to be an integral part of one of the most prestigious and oldest international fashion institutes. Importantly, Esmod Dubai, through its commitment to quality and excellence, has perfectly complemented the stature of the Esmod brand of fashion education. This was evident through the major interest generated by Mrs. Nino’s dress designed by our student, and also the positive feedback we received for the other Esmod Dubai creations that were showcased during the event.”
The anniversary celebrations concluded at the Paris City Hall in the presence of Lyne Cohen-Solal, deputy mayor of Paris, who awarded City of Paris medals to the directors of Esmod Germany, Esmod Norway, Esmod Korea, and Esmod Tunisia - the oldest schools of the network which were founded 25 years ago - in recognition of their contribution to the development of French fashion abroad and the genuine Esmod know-how in their respective countries. - TradeArabia News Service
