Casa 93: The alternative fashion school


How do we reinvent fashion? Tackling the problem at its root means going back to the way it's taught: fashion schools are often elitist. So former journalist Nadine Gonzalez decided to create a French version of the school she established in the favelas of Rio to get people out of poverty. The idea: free tuition, with no qualifications required to get in. It's called Casa 93, a nod to the postcode in the Seine-Saint-Denis neighbourhood where the school is located. FRANCE 24 went to check it out.
