It is the successful result of the merger of three famous institutes claiming the transmission of French art of making and know-how:
- ESIV, since 1945, dedicated to Fashion Product Development. Famous French fashion designers such as André Courrèges and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac studied in our school to perfect their making up of a garment.
- Les Ateliers Grégoire, since 1921, dedicated to the French traditional making of leather accessories.
- L’Atelier d’Etalage, since 1927, dedicated to the original art of merchandising and retail window display.
