In 1994 Emma François obtained a Postgraduate Degree in Economic Anthropology, she then created her ready-to-wear label Sessùn in Marseille in 1995. 

In contact with craftsmen in South America, she created a number of pieces, including a pullover in alpaca which drew interest from several boutiques. In 1999 she came to the attention of Maryline Bellieud-Vigouroux, the then President of the Institut Mode Méditerrannée - IMM (Mediterranean Fashion Institute) who awarded her a prize. The IMM subsequently became the Maison Mode Méditerranée  - MMM (Fashion School).

 « For the first time in my life I made a business plan. This contact helped me become more professional and introduced me to a network ». (Ideat Contemporary Life, 2015) 

Sessùn is one of the most brilliant success stories Made in Marseille in recent years.

Very attached to the MMM, Emma François is a Board Director and Sponsor.
