Chantal Fouqué – Directrice de la Fabrique

Graduated from HEC, Chantal Fouqué joins the Printemps group and the world of distribution in the department stores at the end of her training. She will stay there for 7 years as a buyer in different fashion sectors.

After a short visit to the mass market in Continent, where she was responsible for all women’s purchases, she decided to set up her own business by creating collections based on what she had learned from her past experiences in styling and especially In purchases.

Then, she joined the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry as a management teacher at the ECCIP (which became Advancia) in 1991.

In 1994, she decided to resume her studies and joined the Paris Dauphine University for a postgraduate degree in marketing and strategy. After that, she took over the responsibility for pedagogical engineering for the continuing education of Advancia. It is then in Négocia that she teaches and makes especially a lot of pedagogical engineering

In 2006, she stopped teaching to return to Advancia, school of entrepreneurship, to take responsibility for the bachelor’s degree. A few years later, the CCIP  turned to her to lead the merger of bachelors between Negocia and Advancia (what would become Novancia)

Based on this change management experience, she decided to take over the management of La Fabrique at the end of 2012, seduced by the idea of ​​developing a new school and educated by her previous experiences.

This direction of a school of fashion reasoned with her early career, enabling her to quickly master the codes and key factors of this sector. Today, her vision for the school is that of an institution that must position itself both on the conservation of know-how and on the integration of new technologies – La Fabrique: a conservatory, an observatory but also a Lab for fashion!
