Business and DESIgn of European fashion

During the summer of 2015, I spent four weeks in Paris, France at the Paris American Academy. Throughout my trip, I took a course on the Business and Design of European Fashion. We learned haute couture design techniques and fashion merchandising skills. We took a weekend trip to Belgium to attend a fashion show and spent a day in London attending the Alexander McQueen Savage exhibition.
