"Making fashion" is so much more than just manual skills: it’s the transformation of creative and technical ideas into a tangible project. This transformation is our passion, it is part of our culture and it is our goal when we teach fashion. Our knowledge and methods come from being immersed in the history and creation of “Made in Italy”. We transmit our knowledge and methods to students, that come from many different nationalities, with an educational approach aimed at the ever evolving professions in the fashion world. We were the first fashion school in Italy, founded in 1934. We have trained four generations of fashion makers, creating leading professionals within Italian and international brands; professionals with deeply knowledgable minds and highly skilled hands, capable of creating and designing clothes that are studied and refined down to the smallest details.Brochure Corporate
