LISAA School of Art and Design in Paris has named its new head of fashion to be Thomas Bucaille. Thomas Bucaille will replace Anne Balas-Klein, the current head of fashion at the french school.
He will succeed Anne Balas-Klein, who has been head of fashion at the Parisian art and design school since 2015 and will now be taking up the role of Director of Arts and Creation at LISAA.
