Jacquemus is set to give you a fashion education live from your living room

The designer will feature in a series of free online courses put forward by the The French Fashion School IFM

With schools in France having now been closed for over a week, The French Fashion School IFM (Institut Français de la Mode) has announced it will be putting out a free online course entitled, ‘Understanding Fashion: From Business to Culture’, kicking off March 30.

Initially set up in September 2019 with over 11,000 viewers tuning in globally, this time around the course will see the likes of Simon Porte Jacquemus and Sir Paul Smith share their fashion wisdom. 

Covering topics such as gender representations, social issues, and subcultures, the online initiative will also delve into the relationship between fashion and the press while also exploring fashion as a cultural phenomenon and creative industry.

Presented in English by IFM professor Benjamin Simmenauer, various subtitles will also be available, allowing anyone to engage. 

With Sidney Toledano, CEO of LVMH, Francesca Bellettini, the CEO of Saint Laurent, and Bruno Pavlovsky, president of fashion activities at Chanel also featuring, ‘Understanding Fashion: From Business to Culture’ will be available to anyone, and completely free after registration on FutureLearn.
