Exhibition by our double degree student Laure Julien in Atami
Our exchange student from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Laure Julien, who started her exchange program at GFC in 2020, and who finished her internship at the fashion brand Eatable of Many Orders in Atami city, is organising an exhibition of the two capsule collections she developed at GFC: Tsukumogami and Ryudosei. The exhibition is held at Atami Design Club gallery.
Her exhibition is divided in two parts, featuring the Ryudosei collection during the first half (August 13-24), and her Tsukumogami collection during the second half (August 25-September 4).
For more information on both collections and the exhibition, please visit Laure’s Instagram Page.

The Global Fashion Concentration (GFC) has been founded for students who wish to gain their MA in fashion and textile studies in English. It strives to bridge theory and practice within a global context with a focus on fashion related art and design. As the course is based in Japan, there are classes offered on Japanese aesthetics and language. An array of trans-disciplinary subjects related to fashion are offered. The core subject of the GFC, titled "Project Research", is led by specialists and industry counterparts and is designed to allow students to develop their individual research proposals both in practice and theory. Students will have access to Bunka’s celebrated fashion library and world-class fashion museum for research and inspiration. Additionally, internships at high profile Japanese brands such as Anrealage, as well as the National Art Center enable students to implement real world connections between concept and practical knowledge. To be eligible to graduate, students are required to complete either a full Master’s thesis, or a collection.
In 2016, GFC launched a double degree program with the prestigious Parisian design school École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (ENSAD). Students enrolled in this program will have the opportunity to present their MA project at the ENSAD final collection show and exhibition in Paris.
GFC is a concentrated program: Excellence in creation and skill as well as strong motivation, commitment and patience will be required. Successful graduates will be candidates for employment in all areas and levels of the fashion industry across the world, including design, journalism, fashion buying, curation, and academia.
