ESMOD Earth Week

Les préoccupation éthiques et écologiques sont au cœur de la philosophie ESMOD depuis de nombreuses années : entre les lignes de programmes intégrants des concepts d’upcycling et de zero waste, la création du blog ESMOD Act, nos partenariats avec de grands acteurs de la mode durable, toutes les écoles du réseau ESMOD affirment leur volonté de former leurs étudiants aux pratiques d’une mode toujours plus consciente de son impact écologique et social.



Cette année, #ESMOD s’appuie sur la Journée Mondial de la Terre (#EarthDay) pour faire écho à nos actions en faveur d’une mode meilleure et organise la ESMOD Earth Week du 19 au 23 avril sur notre site internet, nos blogs et nos réseaux sociaux.

Au programme : des présentations de travaux d’étudiants axés sur des concepts éco-éthiques, des interviews, des vidéos de collections de mode durable, des « lives » avec nos anciens étudiants entrepreneurs, es vidéos d’expert, la présentation de notre cour d’été écoresponsable (upcycling), un quizz mode « verte »… pour faire le point sur les actions possibles pour rendre l’industrie de la mode plus propre et responsable.


Retrouvez-nous sur les réseaux sociaux pour suivre tous ce programme d’événement qui fera un tour d’horizon des actions éco-responsables engagées dans toutes nos écoles de notre réseau français (Paris, Roubaix, Lyon, Rennes, Bordeaux) et international (Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Guangzhou, Kuala-Lumpur, Jakarta, Dubaï, Beyrouth, Istanbul, Damas, Tunis, Sousse, Oslo).

Since our school’s beginning in 1841, engaged citizenship has been at our core. Our founder, Alexis Lavigne, defended the rights of 19th century garment workers in Paris, making it possible for many to improve their skills and command higher wages and better working conditions.


Today, we provide training that responds to the needs of the 21st century apparel industry, which must reduce its severe environmental and social impacts. ESMOD students learn the true cost of clothes, including the environmental and social effects. Inspired to find creative solutions to seemingly intractable problems, they make well-informed choices of materials,“ upcycle”, and practice zero -waste pattern -making, resulting in work of which we can all be proud, and that sweeps up prizes in design competitions.


The continual renewal of our curriculum to include the latest innovations in materials and methods, our partnerships with major players in sustainable fashion, and the blog ESMOD ACT, all contribute to allowing ESMOD France and our branches abroad to educate eco-conscious students who are also “eco-capable”, so that tomorrow’s fashion industry will be led by people who will affect necessary change. They have already begun, in companies around the world.


ESMOD schools are celebrating the beginning of a new half century since the first Earth Day with new events each day during ESMOD Earth Week from April 19th to 23rd, on our website, blogs and social media platforms.

On the agenda: presenting ecological and ethical student work, interviews, videos of sustainable fashion collections, IG lives with our eco-conscious & entrepreneurial alumni, industry professionals’ testimonials, a presentation of our sustainable fashion summer course, a green fashion quiz and more! All of this in an effort to take stock of what we can do to make the fashion industry cleaner and more responsible.


Join us on our social media platforms to follow eco-conscious fashion events in ESMOD’s French schools in Paris, Lille-Roubaix, Lyon, Rennes, and Bordeaux, and around the world, at ESMOD in Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Guangzhou, Kuala-Lumpur, Jakarta, Dubai, Beirut, Istanbul, Damascus, Tunis, Sousse, Oslo.)
