Fashion Design, Merchandising, and Media

This program is designed to shape highly qualified professionals through a hybrid approach of a rigorous academic component and hands-on teaching techniques. The goal is to develop skills for future careers in fashion with roots stemming from the alchemy of artisanal arts and industry presence in Italy. By stimulating creative craftsmanship and know-how, students integrate fashion practices and knowledge with contemporary perspectives, mentored by international faculty members that directly represent the industry.
