In the Fashion master you will have courses in business, management, luxury marketing, DTP, visual merchandising...for me these are the courses that were the most profitable, it allowed me then It allowed me to have an internship at Hermès and to be hired afterwards. Thanks to the Master Mode, I was able to have real skills, to apply them in my internships and then in the professional world and today I wish to set up my own business in consulting, for the preservation of know-how in the field of textiles and fashion.

My law degree allowed me to reach this Master's level, to join this class. I was able to learn a lot in terms of management in the field, but also in logistics, business management and marketing. The best part of the course was that I was able to benefit from the Pépite network, which collaborates with the Master Mode, to develop an upcycled fashion project and benefit from this network, as well as win several entrepreneurial prizes, so it was a great adventure! The professors were there to support us, whatever our projects were, and on top of that, our class was great and the teaching team was very present. If you want to become an executive in the fashion industry or develop your own project in the field, I recommend this master's degree which is structuring and opens interesting doors!

I had a lot of commercial knowledge, but what I lacked was the creative side. The Fashion Master's degree allowed me to see and put forward the merchandising side, to better know the fabrics, I made a lot of progress with Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign and that helps me a lot. I have just graduated. I'm answering job offers, but I can't find COVID, so I'm moving forward on my personal projects, my social networks, I'm now officially an influencer and I've just been taken on by an influencer agency, which allows me to get some money like that - but I'm also creating my own jewellery brand. Illustrator, Indesign, it really helped me, for my social networks and for my next brand.
