The Graduate Degree track in Fashion aims at forming high calibre professional figures that are able to effectively establish themselves in the contemporary panorama of fashion design and relative creative industries (as fashion designers, art directors, event planners and fashion curators in particular).

Fashion is the study focus of this programme, and with ‘fashion’ the programme means a system of objects, products, images, and services in all the phases of conception, design, and consumption.

Initial motivational selections and optimal student/teacher relationships guarantee the quality of the programme. They allow students to come in contact with a creative and stimulating environment, and with teachers, assistants, and the many professionals that are invited to seminars and workshops from time to time.

 

At the centre of the programme there are “advanced fashion design studios”, which are important flexible and customisable educational resources. Here, students will have the chance to develop personal projects and experiment with participatory methodologies, refining their creative potential and critical skills.

 

The thematic areas that arise within the advanced studios can be determined thanks to collaboration with companies and cultural institutions, in order to better respond to cultural demands and urgent research.

Professional profile

The programme helps form various professional profiles:

– fashion designers, responsible for: conceiving and designing clothes and accessory collections; researching ideas for fashion collections; developing new product concepts; handling the artistic direction of a fashion brand; managing designer teams who develop patterns for collections;

curators and designers for fashion presentations and exhibitions, both in cultural environments (museums, foundations, and fashion promotion centres) and advertising/commercial contexts (fashion shows, visual merchandising);

critics and historians in visual arts, fashion, and communication;

– art directors that can develop a strategic vision in which different design and planning levels develop and converge.
