IFA Paris Istanbul had the immense pleasure of welcoming the Consul General of France, Monsieur Olivier Gauvin and his valuable team on their campus.
During his visit, Olivier Gauvin conveyed his best wishes to IFA Paris Istanbul. Expressing his joy to be visiting IFA Paris Istanbul, he was given information about the education programs and activities in Istanbul.
The event started with an opening speech from Adile Cretallaz, the founder and manager of the Istanbul campus. In her speech, she mentioned that IFA Paris has always been a pillar for harmonizing innovative ways with French tradition of fashion and luxury. Regarding this journey, she also stated that having the support of French Consulate was a pivotal experience.
After visiting the campus, IFA Paris Istanbul students had the opportunity to meet with Mr. Gauvin, who visited their classes and workspaces. At the end of the afternoon, IFA Paris Istanbul gift kits were presented to all participants.
IFA Paris and the French Consulate Istanbul are now under the process of planning further events together for students such as fashion shows, career fairs and French culture days.
We would like to thank Consul Mr. Gauvin, President of the French Institute Christian Schnell, Elodie Lauger from the French Undersecretariat of Economy and Lea Rodier from Business France for visiting the Istanbul campus and spending time with students and staff.
