End of Year & Grad Show

End of Year Show

From year one, students exhibit their work to the public. Every spring, students exhibit the culmination of their year’s best work right here on campus, coming together for a spectacular End of Year Show. This exciting event is not just a celebration of artistic achievement – it’s a platform for every student to showcase their creative talent. The End of Year Show welcomes not only the PCA community but also family, friends, and the general public. Students learn to exhibit their work in a professional way and gain valuable exposure for their work.

Fashion Show

One of the most anticipated events during the End of Year Show is the runway show. Set against the backdrop of an elegant Haussmann building in the heart of Paris, our talented BFA in Fashion Design students prepare their models to present their meticulously crafted final collections, each consisting of 10 captivating looks. Collaborating with a prestigious makeup school and a Creative Director, our budding fashion designers ensure every detail, from hair to makeup to the garments themselves, exude artistry and innovation.

A distinguished external jury, comprising members from renowned fashion houses such as Dior and Hermes, as well as representatives from small Haute Couture ateliers, esteemed academics from other institutions, and boutique owners, offer invaluable feedback to our senior students on their collections and the creative concepts underpinning them.

This spectacular showcase is not only an opportunity for our students to shine but also a celebration of creativity and collaboration. Admission is free and open to the public. 

Grad Show at Bastille Design Center


For some graduating students, the culmination of their artistic journey goes beyond the End of Year Show. Students graduating from our Photography programs, Fine Arts programs, and Transdisciplinary New Media program show their work in a dedicated exhibition space, the prestigious Bastille Design Center. This exclusive showcase offers graduating students in these programs a professional platform to shine. Students actively participate in the process, installing their pieces themselves and engaging directly with visitors throughout the open days. This provides a valuable opportunity for them to network with industry professionals and the general public, further promoting their artistic voices and fostering connections within the creative field.
