Alain Boix, Head of ESMOD Lyon, at the Maison d’Exceptions show

(English subtitles available)

“My name is Alain Boix. I am the director of the school ESMOD Lyon. For a young student who is going to become a professional, it is very important from the start to understand materials, especially exceptional materials such as those presented here, in order to produce prototypes, since they have the chance to do so. They need to learn a control and knowledge of material and textile before they propose a volume, a product or a garment.”
