About the aicp
Design with instinct, create with your hands.
Founded in 1830 by a syndicate of artisan tailors, the AICP is specialized in teaching technique excellence via its own clothing making methodology (Vauclair-Darroux) and offers a wide range of technical apparel design programs to train future fashion and clothing professionals.
The AICP specializes in the technical aspects of clothing and fashion in menswear and womenswear, couture, luxury, sportswear, lingerie, or custom-made pieces.
