The fast-moving world of fashion and textiles is an ever-changing one as it constantly reinvents itself to keep up with current trends. And whilst sartorial designs seamlessly flow from one style to the next, the fashion capitals of the world very much stay the same.

City of haute-couture, Paris has no shortage of fashion-based visits, with its Palais Galliera (aka the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris) and Fondation Pierre Bergé Yves Saint Laurent complementing the many top-end boutiques and department stores of the Faubourg Saint-Honoré and Boulevard Haussmann.

London plays host to the Fashion & Textile Museum, the V&A, and the London College of Fashion, whilst New York’s trend-setting sartorial scene is led by the Fashion Institute of Technology. Antwerp too, a stone’s throw from Brussels, is a prominent centre for fashion in Europe, with its own dedicated department at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and MoMu fashion museum.

Suggested Fashion / Textiles Technology Itineraries

Whether you’re looking to concentrate on one principal city or region or are looking to combine two destinations (Paris and Brussels, for example) to really bring the subject of fashion and textiles technology to life, we can design a bespoke itinerary to suit not only your particular subject focus, but also your budget.

Equally, if you’d prefer a balance of specialist sartorial subject matter, coupled with the opportunity to see some of the city’s principal attractions (or simply have a bit of fun), we’ve got a wealth of tried and tested ideas to create the perfect, educationally-rich itinerary, all the while carving out a notch of all-important leisure time.

If you’ve got a fashion school trip in mind, or you don’t see quite what you’re looking for, please don’t hesitate to contact us with your requirements and we’ll do our level best to exceed your expectations.

Brussels (& Antwerp)

MoMu Antwerp (c) Antwerpen Toerisme en Congres - smallBrussels is a fabulous city where centuries-old, traditional Flemish architecture goes hand in hand with an abundance of Art Nouveau and space-age structures. Why not combine the many historic, gastronomic and political attractions of Brussels with a trip north to Antwerp, fashion capital of Belgium, where a visit to the Mo-Mu Fashion Museum is an absolute must.

New York

Bloomingdales_www.nycgo.com, GusPowell - smallThere’s nowhere quite like New York, probably the most exhilarating and cosmopolitan city in the world. For students of fashion and textiles technology, a visit to the Museum at FIT (the Fashion Institute of Technology) should be considered an essential inclusion, as is a stroll through So-Ho and NoLIta and down the Fashion Walk of Fame. Check out Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s, too.

Opal Coast

640px-Cité_internationale_de_la_Dentelle_et_de_la_Mode_-_Place_intérieure_2It is not just the short and easy journey from the UK which makes the Opal Coast one of the most popular destinations for school groups. Students will experience a different language and culture, in addition to having the opportunity to visit a host of interesting places. For a fashion school trip in particular, Calais’ Lace and Fashion Museum is a must.
