"Lisaa's activity in higher education fits perfectly within the
objectives of the future of India. It is a real need in India, not
just for fashion, but also for architecture and design. With the
high growth rate and construction booming, this seems fairly
obvious," Laurent Guichoux, education director Lisaa School of
Design, told IANS.
"The Indians consumers are becoming more and more demanding. India
has oriented its growth strategy towards a successful system of
higher education and one can find many high level schools and
universities. Lisaa wants to participate in the transmission of
its know-how in this field," he added.
The first batch will start from Sept 1 and courses offered are
interior design and architecture, fashion and textile, graphic
design and animation.
The institute will have a mix of Indian and international faculty.
"We believe in the benefit to get faculty from India and abroad.
Lisaa Delhi will have 50 percent foreign teachers. We plan
exchange programmes with the Lisaa schools in France. The students
from France and India will have the possibility to study for a
semester or a year in the other country," said Guichoux.
