At Gourdon high school, students from the fashion sector compete for the MAF 2024

The fashion and clothing professions students of the Léo-Ferré secondary school in Gourdon have a busy agenda with their participation in the national competition for Best Student of France 2024 (MAF). The students had only 35 hours to complete it and had to hand in their masterpiece last Friday.
Amalya Beux won gold at MAF 2023 (read our edition of Saturday March 16), this year these young ladies are determined to do the same.

Many medals have already been won

Especially because their teachers Camille Favre and Claudine Espinet are the basis of numerous victories at MAF. These ladies know how to inspire their students and make them winners, their teaching is the best in sewing.

Also note that they have impressive tools, from computers for design to the most advanced machines for classic sewing and of course haute couture. These are the ingredients that make it possible to win countless medals every year at the MAF and enrich the CVs of young seamstresses.

Fairy fingers for a poppy dress

The 2024 theme is all about fuzzy couture with a poppy dress. The difficulties are of course many: it requires four meters of fabric, fittings, box pleats, balloon sleeves with folded bracelet and handmade hems (see our photo). The model is accompanied by a dossier on the technical elements of the test.

Nadine Vélard, Meilleur Ouvrier de France (MOF), master ceramist, member of the MAF jury and organizer of the MAF sur le Lot, will ensure that everything runs smoothly in the completion of the work.
Let’s hope these young girls all get selected.

Finally, note that the school town’s traditional fashion show is scheduled for May 7 from noon to 2 p.m.
