«Marseille is rich in different cultures and melanges. With the new site for the MMM in the Euro-Mediterranean culture and business district, our profession will at last have the tool it needs to correctly promote university training and education, and the local fashion industry. The space is very impressive, very special, it’s awesome. You have to try and imagine the Master Classes between students and professionals, and the events that could take place there to get a real understanding of its positive potential. For our brand, Kulte, we always try and recruit the work placement students on the Degree and Masters Degree courses. When I get involved or speak as part of the Design or Training and Education courses, I always try and share with the students my feelings about the skills and know-how our company has and the prospects for the future. »
