FASHION DESIGNER COURSE

Welcome to the Cléone Institute.

Cléone has created this Institute to train you to become a “Great Fashion Designer”.

Cléone,
The passion to pass on

Fashion is a passion; it’s my whole life.

I was 23 years old when I started my fashion house, after I had the amazing opportunity of being trained to Madeleine Vionnet’s technique.

Today, after a life spent creating, I want to pass on my expertise.

So if you’re attracted to the world of creation and fashion design, and if your ambition is to become a “Great Fashion Designer”, come share my passion and join us at the Cléone Institute.

The keys to the course

The training course is made of 12 units and takes place over a two-year period.
Lessons are available on an online training platform. They complete the video units of Cléone’s courses.
Every week, Cléone will be teaching through live streaming and students will be able to ask questions at the end of the lesson.
Throughout the training, students will be asked for thorough personal work. They will have to create pieces that will be graded by the teaching staff.

Every unit must be validated in order to move on to the next one.
