Accademia Costume & Moda (ACM) and RATTI SPA announce the offer of 4 new scholarships for the Master in Fabrics Innovation Design starting in November this year in the Rome headquarters in Via della Rondinella 2.

ACM has always supported the most deserving students with 24 dedicated scholarships for three-year courses, 16 scholarships for partial-coverage Masters, in addition to 4 scholarships awarded by one of the most renowned textile companies in the Italian fashion system , RATTI SPA and 1 donated by Marco Mastroianni, Responsible Crèation Matières LVMH and Scientific Director of the Master in Fabrics Innovation Design, for the training of managerial figures and multifaceted professionals able to face the new challenges imposed by the market.

The Master in Fabrics Innovation Design addresses two specific areas: the first is fabric research and development, one of the most demanding fields in the sector, in which the creative exploration of textiles and materials for fashion production requires an articulated mix of knowledge and skills accompanied by a deep cultural background; the second is innovation, with particular attention to sustainability. The theoretical training is accompanied by the direct experience of the students through the development of projects in collaboration with prestigious brands and companies in the production chain.

Specifically, the Master in Fabrics Innovation Design will make use of the support of RATTI Spa and Marco Mastroianni.

They declare:

Sergio Tamborini, Chief Executive Officer of Ratti:

“Training, innovation and sustainability along the entire supply chain. They are the levers to continue to grow the textile industry. Thanks to young talents we will be able to innovate and also face the new challenges of fashion, eco-design and sustainability. The themes are deeply connected, but for all it is worth highlighting what the schools do, such as the Accademia Costume & Moda, which aims to be a nursery of talents, of which the industry, for its creative and productive part, has a great need”

Marco Mastroianni, Head of Crèation Matières LVMH:

“Knowledge and culture guide the talent that must be nourished with everything that exists: art, costume, photos, fashion, nature.

As a former student of the Accademia Costume & Moda, I know that culture is the pillar in the training of these young talents and the role it “plays” in their professional future.”
