Yetunde Oshodi-Fraudeau, who was born in Nigeria and grew up in White Plains, NY, arrived in France in 2003 thinking that after a year, she would be off discovering the world in the hotel industry. Years later, after 3 different Paris addresses and a move down south, France has become home. She’s been a part of the school mainly far off in the background from day one. The current school designs in Paris & Uzès were her dream, a nod to her studio in Brooklyn, NY for the former & to Provençal decor for the latter. After selling her Paris-based company, she is now at the schools full-time in Marketing & Sales.
