With the support of his association "Les Ateliers Parisiens" created in 2016, Mossi not only trains young people in Haute Couture but also helps them to integrate into the professional world.

The school and the association also train neighborhood women or migrants without qualification in sewing trades in order to make them pass the CAP as a free candidate and help them find a job.

“Les Ateliers Alix” is also an opportunity for the creator to pay tribute to Madame Grès, Alix by her first name, whose work fascinates him. Fascinated by the design of Yohji Yamamoto, Issey Miyake, Margiela, Indian culture but also Japanese manga and contemporary art, in 2017, Mossi Traoré launched his brand MOSSI of women's ready-to-wear which evokes rigor and sewing aesthetics.
