Fashion

A course in Fashion is for those who fancy beautiful and smart clothes and for those who enjoy using their imagination and talent to create these dresses, hats, footwear and all sorts of other different unique costumes. A course in Fashion will explore how fashion is connected with other concepts, such as style, fashion design and collections, as well as fashion industry and journalism.

The idea of fashion is an ancient one that can be traced thousands of years back in time. The highly respected profession of a fashion designer or a stylist requires vast knowledge in different areas. For instance, a fashion designer, a fashion journalist, or anybody else connected to fashion should be well educated in art, cultural heritage, history, aesthetic theories on one hand, and on the other – be creative and capable of coming up with individual and challenging ideas and concepts. A Course in Fashion can provide a comprehensive understanding and foundation in all of these aspects.

Course in The Italian System: from Fashion to Design

New B2B and B2C strategies for design, production, communication and distribution. From Fashion, to Design and Lifestyle. Nowadays the role of culture, know how, and the ability to transmit the distinctive value of products and services have become more and more important. This does not end just in the final brand, but it is made up of a sequence of values, from the design to the selection of raw materials and product engineering until its release on the market. An overview that puts suppliers, contractors and licensees in the foreground, enhancing its contribution of quality and distinctiveness and providing them with opportunities of visibility as protagonists of a network of values. Reinforcing the concept of 'Italianità' (italianness) means coming back to the multifaceted repertoire of knowledge, genius, but above all calculation: to build on our culture, our meticulousness, our experience, our thinking. In order to continue seducing the new rich markets with inimitable and non-replicable results it is important to move from the traditional but a little watered down label of “Made in Italy” to a more modern and al-emblracing one: “From Italy”. Moving from the experience of Showcase Country to the one of Atelier Country.... [-]
