Esmod showcases 'fashion of the future'
Dubai, December 22, 2011
French institute based in UAE, Esmod Dubai, held a fashion show yesterday (December 21), showing audiences a glimpse of what the fashion world would become decades from now in 2040.
‘The Future’ show was held at the Esmod Campus in al Rawaya, Academic City, a statement from the institute said.
The pageantry of 60 experimental creations under 60 novel collections from the institute’s first to third year students served as its main Christmas-season event.
The showpieces covered themes such as nuclear power, explosion and uniforms and reflected the designers’ unique take on what fashion will look like in the year 2040.
Guests were treated to a wide range of apparel, from waistcoats and corsets to uniforms and extravagant dresses, the statement said.
“We immersed our students in volume workshops and gave them inspiring themes to ensure that they come up with an exciting lineup this year. Audiences were definitely impressed by the diversity and unique use of shapes, volumes and colors and how our students translated them into dramatic fashion statements,” said Tamara Hostal, director and founder of Esmod Dubai.
Esmod Dubai offers a comprehensive three-year fashion design and pattern making diploma course which teaches basic techniques in preparation for higher-level design, introduces various products and collections to encourage creativity, and guides the choice of specialisation as well as the building of personal collections.
All subjects are conducted by internationally recognised professionals of the fashion industry. The course’s latest batch will commence on January 29, 2012, the statement said.
Esmod Dubai is the local campus of Esmod International, which was established in Paris in 1841 by the French tailor, inventor, and innovator, Alexis Lavigne. Esmod is recognised as the first institution to codify couture by inventing tools still being used by today’s designers, such as the bust mannequin and the soft metric ribbon, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
