IFA Paris opened its’ doors on September 26th for the Class of 2022-2023. This year’s class includes more than 180 new students from over 50 different countries around the world. A total of 450 students for the Paris campus, constituting its’ new enrollment record thanks to its’ growing international popularitý.
IFA Paris is dedicated to offering its’ future fashion professionals a quality education combining French know-how and a resolutely sustainable approach to the fashion and luxury industry.
This year, due to its’ larger number of students, the school had to adapt and make new arrangements to welcome its’ students in the best possible conditions. In particular, the organization of the classrooms has been reviewed. An equipped sewing room was added as well as a pattern room in the school’s Foundry space. A major reinvestment was also made in machines and equipment in order to offer state-of-the-art quality equipment for more precise creative designs.
In terms of digital technology, in the middle of last year, IFA Paris was equipped with SpeechiTuch and SpeechiTuch Capacity digital boards with infrared technology that work on the principle of a giant digital tablet offering numerous possibilities. Equipped with an Android system, these screens are very powerful and intuitive, no doubt that they will help students and teachers to have efficient courses in high definition.
Moreover, the SpeechiTuch Capacity board allows for real design prowess. It is closer to the large format graphic tablet due to its unique precision. For drawing, SoeechiTuch is equipped with more than 100 different thicknesses of pressure. This is something for the most meticulous among us to enjoy.
In addition to these boards, students will be able to rely on state-of-the-art equipment such as Oculus virtual reality headsets and 3D printers. The school also provides 3D clothing modeling software on avatars, a body scanner and a laser cutting machine. IFA Paris makes a point of offering its’ students the latest technology, such as the possibility of digitizing patterns.
IFA Paris is delighted to meet its talented students and to meet new ones. The school sees in each of them the potential to become future great talents in the fashion industry.
