One of the most technical fashion schools in Paris, Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne is exhibiting the graduation work of its fourth-year students. Instead of hosting a traditional runway show, students are required to design a muslin prototype and showcase an installation of photos and individually made look books, this year under the coaching of French designer Martine Sitbon.


Some of the standout looks included Fanny Ourevitch’s elaborate take on upcycling, using plastic bags to create artisanal techno fabrics, and Mathilde Lamarre’s child-inspired piece that focused on volume by turning her pattern upside down, like a kid doing a handstand.
