Combine inspiration with their own ideas
Every creative person must combine inspiration with the ability to implement their own ideas. Istituto Secoli, where I got my master's degree in lingerie and bridal wear, taught me exactly this. In my work as a designer, it's essential not to neglect patternmaking and tailoring skills, to have the ability to turn a simple drawing into reality, and to know how a type of material performs.

Very good institute
I attended the Women's wear Patternmaking and Size Development course in the 90s. The working method was very simple and straightforward. I found a job straight away! I recommend it.
I have built a solid foundation
I was able to accomplish and learn so many things during my 3-year experience and study at Istituto Secoli. I have built a solid foundation as a designer and patternmaker.

The technical foundation and professional approach
For me, the Institute was the technical foundation and professional approach that are still the core of my work today. Beyond the fascination with style, the 'know-how' and the professional dedication developed are now the greatest strengths of the profession.

A clear scientific method for patternmaking
My education at Istituto Secoli, first in pattern-making and then in sketch-making, has provided me with a clear scientific method for patternmaking. Knowing where and how to proceed, I can intervene conscientiously; replacing 'industrial' measurements with those of each of my clients, I obtain a precise, tailor-made pattern.

Before getting into Istituto Secoli, I just knew how to draw; the three-year course in women’s wear, gave me the basis and the skills to find a job in the fashion industry. This course taught me a craft and helped me to fulfill my dreams.

A technical-scientific training
The technical-scientific training at Istituto Secoli gave me the basis to create the geometries that I now add to each one of my collections — a daily glance aimed at perceiving the entropy that surrounds me.
