What did we learn on Day 5, Friday, July 5 in Paris?
- That the sculpture Rodin, had an extremely prolific career. Students loved seeing the contrast of materials and style of his sculpture, from smooth sensual marble to hard sleek bronze.
- We enjoyed learning about Raf Simons, the new head designer for Dior. We feel there is a return to the couture houses and heritage rather than the past decade, year of the celebrity designer who may not follow trends of the house. Versace also represented in their collection this season, a return to the house.
- We learned about the March St. Pierre area, to source fabrics, textiles, trims and even the camilia fabric flowers.
