Training and trades
Training, between tradition and innovation
The fashion sector offers nearly a million associated jobs in very different specialties (stylism, model making, textile design, sewing, engineering, marketing, sales, etc.). The relocation of production in France and the many retirements restore the labour market to a vigorous mode and increase training needs. Creative profiles have the possibility of being trained through diversified professional paths.
CAP, BMA (Fine Crafts Patent), or specialized BTS are now working alongside hybrid training courses, combining the new fashion professions in the digital fields with the traditional crafts of clothing and sales.
Measures to develop the competitiveness of French training
Trades and Qualification Campuses, which are designed to bring training establishments around a sector in an academy are certified by the National Education. The campus of the Paris mode, which is currently emerging, is a response to the need to bring together the fashionable training institutions of the Paris Academy, the Nouvelle Aquitaine campus combines luxury crafts, art and fashion around leather, the Indre-et-Loire campus was built around leather, watchmaking and luxury.
The “Savoir pour faire” campaign launched in 2019 by the Comité Stratégique de Filière Mode et Luxe highlights the high-value-added businesses in the sector and enhances the value of the fashion technical businesses. A third stream was launched in January 2022 entitled A meeting, a profession values training and business lines and matches desires and talents.
