2 days in London for the Ms Luxury and Fashion

Every year, when the back to school days are here again, every student must find his place and create new relationships with his mates and the educational team who will lead him daily throughout the year. So as they are now used to doing it, the students of the Ms in Fashion and Luxury Goods Management went on an integration trip to learn to know each other, but also to immerse themselves into the degree’s atmosphere.

Discovering the heart of the traditional London culture

After a comfortable bus trip, the students arrived in London about 8 am, for a great and intense visit day. Like many young people who get to know the capital every day, they spent their night in the Clink 261, iconic youth hostel, right next to Kings Cross, and close to the city center.

All along their journey, they had the chance to discover different and famous districts and see great historic monuments like Westminster Abbey. With a stop at Harrods or a dinner in the trendy district of East End, the students didn’t only made a classical touristic ride, since the trip’s theme was of course focused on luxury and fashion.

Learning about art, fashion and luxury in London

So that they can discover an unknown side of the capital, visits in the most trendy exhibitions were planned. At the famous Saatchi Gallery, our young experts enjoyed the Chanel retrospective, while the Victoria & Albert Museum made a big impression thanks to its masterpieces, coming from the entire world and narrating 2000 years of art and design history. The first day ended with a tour at the Royal Exchange, former London stock exchange, transformed into a luxury temple where shops, bars and restaurants mingle with a neo-classical, massive and impressing architecture.

After a full English breakfast on the next morning, the Fashion and Textile Museum was a must-see to understand the characteristic Londoner contemporary fashion. More than a hundred years of Liberty creation were exposed! The trip ended with a visit of the Tate Modern, contemporary painting museum settled in a former electric factory by the Thames.

Here’s a great introduction which filled students with knowledge before tackling deeply the subject in l’Ecole Conte were they will follow their training.
