Institut des Métiers d’Excellence LVMH signs partnership with Ecole Boulle

The Institut des Métiers d’Excellence LVMH has signed a partnership with Ecole Boulle. A new work/study program organized in conjunction with the GRETA Création, Design et Métiers d’Art vocational training structure will provide specialized training in retail design for the luxury sector, expanding the IME course list.


Inaugurated in 2014, the Institut des Métiers d’Excellence LVMH provides vocational training in a variety of artisanal specialties, including jewelry, couture flou and couture tailleur (soft couture and tailoring), leather goods, winemaking, retail and now retail design.

Eleven future designers will begin a 19-month course at Ecole Boulle in January 2016, alternating classroom studies with practical experience at Berluti, Christian Dior Couture, Guerlain, Hennessy, Le Bon Marché, Louis Vuitton, Make Up For Ever, MHCS, Parfums Givenchy and Parfums Christian Dior.

They will also attend Master Classes at LVMH Houses representing the Group’s different business segments. These classes will cover four areas of expertise required to earn a degree: space and volume for temporary and permanent advertising spaces; retail spaces; cultural spaces; the cultural sector; and physical advertising.
