And it’s a wrap!

The Bachelor Fashion Design & Technology students from IFA Paris - Istanbul campus just completed their first year.

To celebrate this first step in their fashion design journey, students were awarded with a Certificate of Completion by Esra Hatipoglu, director and professor at Nisantasi University during a ceremony organized on campus. A get-together followed, gathering students and lecturers who reminisced on this first year together.

Before leaving for a well-deserved summer break in their respective countries, students were invited to an inspirational museum visit at the famous Istanbul Modern Museum.

They scrolled through the life of the late Ara Guler, an emblematic Turkish photographer, who gave his letters of nobility to the Turkish photography by shooting remarkable shoots of Turkey but also of celebrities of his time as Salvador Dali, Marc Chagall, Alfred Hitchcock, Maria Callas, Pablo Picasso, Indira Gandhi or Winston Churchill among others.

In the exhibition entitled “Two Archives, One Selection: Ara Guler’s Footsteps in Istanbul”, students discovered shots of people and views of Istanbul they know through the lens of Ara Guler and could see the rapid evolution of the city.

We look forward to welcoming back our fashion design students to campus for their second year starting in September.
