I am keen to put my experience and my vision of fashion at the service of the younger generations. I am very attached to the transmission of knowledge and the central role of education. I am therefore proud and happy to have been entrusted with the task of helping the Institut Français de la Mode in its already well-developed project to become a world-class fashion school. Bringing together and developing talent from around the world in Paris, both in management and in creation and know-how, is essential for our industry” .

Created to stand up to Central Saint Martins (London), Parsons (New York), La Cambre (Brussels) and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Antwerp), the school’s objective is to become “the best school of design”.

 

The ambition is very strong. […] We are aiming for the best school of design, a field in which we had lost some ground. There is a very strong demand from foreign students, and also from scholarship holders” for the IFM, he emphasized.

 

Afterwards, Toledano also revealed the importance he places on the dialogue between designers, managers, workshops and production centers: “I have always been passionate about transmission […] The key is to know how to combine creation and craftsmanship,” he reveals. According to him, a good manager must take the time to make designers understand the spirit of creation, which is “the key to the success of French brands: pay attention to the culture of fashion” .

 

When I speak at the IFM, I insist on this. For designers too, it is important to know the work of prototypists and to be able to access tools and technology, which are very present at the IFM,” he said, before adding that Paris, along with Milan, is at an unparalleled level of excellence in terms of know-how in the global fashion sector.
