Programme profile

Graduates of this programme will understand the process of fashion design and develop creative abilities, both intellectual and technical, necessary to operate in the fashion industry.

Starting with techniques in design, this programme addresses the analysis of fabrics and clothing manufacturing, as well as aspects of production. The study of fashion trends will allow for the creation of a collection that responds to the needs of the target brand.

The programme trains students to predict trends and tendencies: the fashion designer can work for private labels or in collaboration with Italian fashion houses and their style studios, as consultants or researchers.  Graduates  will be able to design collections for women, men and children, as well as accessories, with a permanent eye focused on new evolutions in fashion design.

Note: an enrolment fee of Eur3500 is payable in Year 1
