CLa Cambre-Mode[s] was created in 1986 as the Fashion design department of the Ecole nationale supérieure des arts visuels of La Cambre, a Brussels-based School of art and design, created in 1927 by the famous Belgian artist and architect Henry van de Velde. The School offers a wide array of educational programs at Master's level, ranging from drawing, painting and sculpture to photography, animation, stage set design, graphic design and communication, ceramics, industrial, textile and fashion design, interior design, bookbinding, conservation and restoration of artworks etc.

La Cambre-Mode[s] 5-year curriculum is articulated around 2 principal axes: Stylism and Fashion design. Stylism responds to a precise demand in the given context. It disappears in a strategy of brand under all its aspects : production, communication, distribution, active research, etc. The cultural, social, ethical and technical competencies allied to the faculty of analysis, of justness of perception and of communication, are the qualities of a designer placed in the center of a business. Fashion design, less determined by economic logic, develops a more personal and innovative language. These two disciplines have in common the inscription of the body through the use of volumes, images, colours and materials : the student study all the facets of fashion as a form of contemporary expression. Through exercises and specific projects, he is led to work on the concrete statements and to develop, with each collection, an evermore personal and innovative language.

In addition to a solid knowledge of the current fashions, a number of transdisciplinary workshops, courses and seminars are offered, both mandatory and optional, in the arts fields as well as in history, philosophy and aesthetics, literature, semiotics, law. An intense technical training, yearly internships in the professional milieu and legendary annual public shows fulfil a rich and demanding study period. These shows, financed partially by the students and on the other hand by faithful, generous partners as La Libre Essentielle, Dior cosmetics, Brussels Invest & Export or La communauté Française... allow to show and to make discover the talent of our future creators at once to a wide public but also to professionals among whom our prestigious juries (Jean-Paul Gaultier, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, John Galliano, Suzy Menkes, Raf Simons, Agnes B, Véronique Branquinho, Manish Arora)... In the palmares of our school, we can quote Cathy Pill, Sandrina Fasoli, Anthony Vaccarello, Olivier Theyskens (ex-designer of Rochas and Nina Ricci, designer of Theory), Jose Enrique Ona selfa, Laetitia Crahay (artistic director of Maison Michel and person in charge of accessories at Chanel), Cédric Charlier (previous art director of Cacharel) and many of them working in the shadow of big houses as Laurent Edmond, Thierry Rondenet and Hervé Yvrenogeau, Julien Dossena, Nicolas di Felice, Thiphaine Bonnaud, Emilie Duval, Oriane Leclercq, Julie Dekegeleer (all at Balenciaga), Déborah Macquard (Yves Saint Laurent) Isabelle Août, Jérémy Dhennin and Céline Petit (Jean-Paul Gaultier), Matthieu Blazy, Alexandra Jacqmin (Maison Martin Margiela), Sarah de Grunne (Kenzo)...
