The Creative Collections semester is conceived and structured as a comprehensive overview of the Italian leaders in fashion and textile design: professionals, companies, trademarks, events and trade fairs connected with the world of style.
The Creative Collections semester focuses on three main objectives:
- The acquisition of a multidisciplinary methodology needed to produce a collection;
- Application of the expression languages and representation tools of the industry;
- Master the fundamental skills and techniques necessary to design clothing collections and to supervise technical development, choice of fabrics and coordination.
The “project work” semester is structured around courses that introduce the Italian design system, understanding company and marketing dynamics, analyzing current trends in interior design in terms of language, and understanding form and materials. Students will use their analytical skills and theoretical knowledge to develop and complete a hands-on design project as a final semester work.
The IED approach offers students the unique opportunity to work directly with industry professionals as part of their academic experience and professional development thanks to long-standing relationships with Italian fashion and design industry leaders.
Students enrolling in semester programs at the IED have the option to extend to a full Academic Year program by adding an additional semester either in the same field or different discipline or they can opt for the Two City Option by enrolling in an additional semester at another IED location offering semester programs. Currently only IED Florence and Milan offer this option.
This semester program is open to current students, graduates and professionals seeking to define or acquire new skills and perspective. IED is able to provide further information regarding course content, facilities and faculty upon request. IED facilitates students spending a semester or academic year abroad by facilitating credit transfer in collaboration with the student’s home institution.
