LISAA teaches designers in the fields of fashion, graphic design, interior architecture, animation and video game.
LISAA’s fashion school is based in Paris –the capital of fashion. It trains students in fashion and textile design. It recently strengthened its courses in the fields of marketing and innovation, in order to teach students about new design and manufacturing techniques, new materials and new uses.
