Art & Design Study Abroad Programs in Italy: Fashion Design.

All courses are taught in English.

Studying fashion design also means heading down a path toward growth and self-awareness that leads to the ability to understand what exactly your strong points are and what your own role can be, not only in the fashion industry, but also in the world.

Study abroad in Florence Italy At our school, your starting point is the knowledge of the techniques for designing models on paper, elaborating these technical designs via computer, and analyzing fabrics. We do all of this in order to associate ideas and available materials with the results we want. Illustrate fashion figures, design collections and realize clothing items through experimentation and utilization of a wide variety of fashion techniques: paper models, draping, sewing, embroidery, knitwear, printing, designing accessories, and more.

In the world of fashion, as in other highly competitive fields, one of the greatest resources is the ability to work in a team to develop ideas and create successful products. Because of this, we have developed a program where you not only learn how to design and realize garments, but also to meet all the challenges of working in the real fashion world, such as collaborating with photographers, finding models, and organizing publicity. The final result is a picture of the unified techniques acquired through this educational process.

You can be a fashion designer. You have what it takes. Do it Fashion!
