The one-month specialized joint program in Luxury Design Management launched by Parsons Paris and Polimoda addresses the essence, the heritage and the organization of high-end industries.
The first half of the program is held in Paris. It focuses on the strategic development of French and Italian leading luxury sectors and provides an interdisciplinary understanding of their processes and specificities at the crossroads of design innovation, business and culture.
Parsons Paris organized a field trip at Maison Lemarié, one of the historical houses of Chanel Métiers d’Art. Founded in 1880, specialised in feather and flower creations for the most prestigious luxury fashion houses, Lemarié produces handmade flowers, such as Chanel’s iconic camellias. Students could discover Lemarié’s expertise and see the artisans at work during the visit. They also had the unique opportunity to understand the business model and organization of Lemarié thanks to the exhaustive presentation of Nadine Dufat, Managing Director of Lemarié.
