HISTORY - TIMELINE
The year that Alexis Lavigne (master tailor for the Empress Eugenie, inventor of the mannequin and the supple measuring tape) founded a fashion design school where he developed teaching methods based on a secretly protected expertise. When he passed away, his family maintained the school’s tradition by continuing to reach his methods.
At the time of Luxury Ready-To-Wear and the emergence of the ‘creative designers’, the school opens its doors to foreign students and becomes ESMOD International by developing a network of Institutes and Universities across the world.

ESMOD Dubai Mission
To reveal and nurture the creative individuality, aesthetic sense and superior garment making skills of students through our unique practical methodology appraised by the fashion industry and to support our Alumni in the establishment of their own fashion businesses. We assist and mentor our students to develop their ability to produce meticulous expressions of fashion design. We stimulate their drive for excellence, their entrepreneurship and their eagerness to experiment with “breaking the mould’.
Innovation and creativity are essential themes of our teaching methodology and curriculum. Our constantly updated program follow the ever changing fashion trends.
We encourage our students and staff to communicate freely and openly and to engage in enquiry that is informed by both intellectual rigour and research of fashion industry disciplines and techniques.
Our uniquely collaborative learning environment is an ideal setting for a vibrant mix of personalities to flourish. It allows our students and staff to express a range of opinions, ambitions and desires.
Students participating to our highly interactive learning processes find this to be a compelling education experience: they develop new skills to expand their capacity for leadership and lifelong personal development by engaging in reflection and self-analysis.
Through the partnership we forge with individual students, they acquire the core skills of professionally trained design practitioners.
They are ready to embrace change and can easily adapt to emerging trends and new technologies.
We stay in touch with our students after graduation. They are capable of taking a leadership role in the international fashion industry and of making a significant contribution to the fashion industry.
As active participants in our many industry associations, our graduates represent the qualities and traditions that are the distinguishing features of ESMOD Dubai.
Our graduates are living embodiments of the ESMOD Dubai Philosophy.
