Program content

Methodology and structure - The study path is structured so as to provide students with all the tools required to properly and efficiently create a fashion or accessories collection and place it within the contemporary market. The whole process focuses on the application of one Design Method - the typical Made in Italy one - which constitutes the basis of the whole process, taught to students from the first year until the Final Project.

Regarding all the different collections studied, a particular attention is paid to the acquisition of pattern-making and sewing skills, textile, leather technology and processing, design techniques, fashion illustration, the production process of garments and accessories.

Complementary to the technical and methodological disciplines is the particular focus on cultural studies that identify the language of fashion as a historical, artistic and social phenomenon, as a flow of trends and codes, as a creative and visual narrative and as an economic system featured by a production chain and by specific marketing and communication strategies. Students have the possibility to choose among different workshops (changing every year) such as hand embroidery, written analysis of trends, hand knitwear, fur.

Within the specialization in Shoes and Accessories Design, in addition to designing the collections dedicated to the different types of accessories (women and men), intense workshops ensure a proper use of the tools and machines, for the acquisition of pattern making techniques and bag and shoe manufacturing. Moreover, the course offers a focus on specific technical drawings, the processes of production and use of different leathers and skins, as well as metal hardware design for accessories.
