Learn from working professionals
All of the teachers at Accademia del Lusso are expert working professionals and have roles within business in the fashion, design and luxury sectors in Italy. Either working for well-known fashion brands and businesses, or owning their own company, the School's teachers are students’ first point of contact with the real world of work.
This makes for a very authentic learning experience and means that students are always up-to-date with the latest techniques and trends in the fashion & design industry. There are frequent opportunities for students to meet face-to-face with industry professionals and visit important businesses and brands.
The international quality of the School's courses are outlined by the possibility to study in English – an essential language in today’s business environment, by links with schools and universities from across the globe, and by the fact that classes are made up of students from all over the world.
Combined, these three elements guarantee that students experience working in an international environment and benefit from interacting with people from many different nationalities: simulating what students will encounter once they enter the job market in fashion and design.
