Jean-Baptiste Truong, student in Institut Français de la Mode in Paris
More often than not, we imagine the fashion designers living in their ivory tower, and creating only for people of their kind. But fashion is a real business, deeply anchored in reality. Jean-Baptiste Truong tells us about it with great lucidity. After a Master’s degree from a Business School, he worked in New York with fashion buyers, then left the world of fashion for cosmetics, at MAC and Chanel. This year, he decided to go back to his first love, and entered the Institut Français de la Mode. According to Business of Fashion, this Parisian school is in the top 3 of the best fashion schools in the world!
