MASTER’S PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Master in Fashion Design program brings students into direct contact with the fashion design industry in Italy and abroad. You will have the rare and exciting opportunity to develop your own original, compelling fashion collection under the guidance of industry professionals. 

Through theoretical studies and project experiences, you will develop an individual mode of expression, explore the cultural factors that influence fashion trends, learn the ins and outs of production, and create innovative solutions. 

Besides honing the “problem solving” skills that every fashion designer needs, you will also develop a “problem defining” approach: the ability to delineate the parameters of each challenge. As you learn to follow your intuition and promote your aesthetic vision within those parameters, you will become more aware of the reasons behind your own fashion design choices and those of others.
