Philippe Zmirou is far from unknown at Maisons de Mode. As the director of renowned fashion academic institution Esmod/ISEM International Roubaix for the last 22 years, he has been part of the administration advisory council of Maisons de Mode since its beginnings. Furthermore, his school counts as one of Maisons de Mode’s longest-term partners.
Zmirou has decided to put his passion for fashion and his extensive network of connections to service for Maisons de Mode and its designers to breathe new life into the project.
