Cindy Fournier considers fashion as not only coming down to clothes and makeup. She vividly offers through her work to look and think behind and beyond dress as a surface and appearance, as the list below proves. 

Her interest for the history of dress and fashion cannot be reduced to the way she dresses nor to the number of fashion magazines that she buys a month. She is deeply and sincerely persuaded that the world of fashion is deeper than that. For this reason she has chosen all along her university education to take all the opportunities that she could to develop her study of the dress from perspectives and points of view that she never thought could be a prima facie linked to the world of fashion.

Not far from considering it as part of the arts, she hardly could imagine dress, even for a second, studied through a scientific lens. She soon realised being wrong throughout the range of projects/works that carried out at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. All of them are written in French, her mother tongue, and linked to dress through either theories or/and concepts. Some were thought from a communicational perspective, others from an anthropological/ethnological one.

Awarded a BA degree in Sciences of Information and Communication and Anthropology (September 2015), Cindy Fournier then completed the Vogue Fashion Foundation Diploma at the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design in London (June 2016). As the course focused rather on fashion communications and business, she worked on:

Finally, she graduated with distinction on the MA degree in Fashion Communication: Fashion Critical Studies at the University of the Arts London – Central Saint Martins, where she more specifically explored fashion as an object, image, text and practice through disciplines such as art, history, literature, politics, geography and anthropology:
