In addition professors from France and Germany, who are well established in the fashion world, are on hand to promote your creativity and support you in the development of collections and new fashion trends.

It was important for us to find a partner that shared this particular sensitivity to the artistic and creative process. With the renowned Hochschule für Kunst, Design und Populäre Musik Freiburg University of Arts and Applied Sciences (hKDM), we have succeeded in this and are proud to present the Fashion Design B.A. course In co-operation with the hKDM University.

Berlin is en vogue
Berlin is not just a fashion city for a week, every day, 365 days a year Berlin is en vogue. In recent years, the city has turned into one of Europe's fashion capitals. That's why Atelier Chardon Savard decided to establish a location in Berlin.
"We are afraid of the Berlin fashion scene,” read one media report, "because it is so good!" When it comes to fashion, the city has set out to become a modern day Paris. Berlin is making itself known in the fashion world, that much is clear. And it's self proclaimed motto „Weltstadt mit Herz und Schnauze“ (capital with heart and gruffness) is evident not only at the numerous fashion shows, but also in the broad spectrum of fashion trends, from urban and streetwear to high-quality classic to environmentally friendly and sustainable fashion.
Berlin fashion is not only growing because of Fashion Week, it's also growing from within. The city is a bubbling haven of individual visions, which come together to create an original masterpiece. This is precisely the reason the studio Chardon Savard decided to open its doors in Berlin. In the words of Cyrille Chardon and Dominique Savard: "We are looking for people with personality, with intuition and passion. We are looking for Berlin."
Berlin is the Top 6 „Best Student City worldwide 2017“, not only because it has so much to offer culturally – Berlin is a city that never sleeps!
