HKDI in the Spotlight

Esprit Cares Trust supports two HKDI students for an exchange programme at ENSAV – La Cambre, Belgium

Esprit Cares Trust supports two HKDI students for an exchange programme at École nationale supérieure des arts visuels de La Cambre (ENSAV – La Cambre) in Belgium. Students selected for this exchange programme are Liu Chi, Charlie and Wan Ka Wing, Justin. Both of them are student of Fashion Design and they will study at ENSAV – La Cambre from September 2014 to July 2015.

ENSAV – La Cambre is among the top 10 fashion academies around the world. The institution is renowned for its solid industrial network with all major brands and supreme reputation in the field. Outstanding alumni include Olivier Theyskens – Creative/Artistic Director of Rochas, Nina Richi and Theory, Laetitia Crahay – Artistic Director of Maison Michel and Person-in-Charge of Chanel accessories, and Cédric Charlier – previous Art Director of Cacherel and currently running his own label, to name a few.

In February 2014, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between ENSAV – La Cambre and HKDI, signifying the beginning of academic collaboration between the two institutions.

The opportunity for HKDI students to spend a semester at an internationally prestigious academy is indeed priceless. There is no doubt that HKDI students will benefit tremendously from this valuable learning experience.
