The event, moderated by Federico Brugnoli, Founder & CEO of SPIN 360 and Scientific Director of the Master in Fashion Sustainability & Industry Evolution offered at our Campus in Milan, was part of the “Art, Fashion, Heritage and Future” session.

The talk was entirely dedicated to the world of education and training: opportunities and challenges on the new skills required for the next generations. The speakers had a very in-depth discussion on the evolution of design, what skills will be needed to face future challenges and which occupations will be more relevant in the years to come.

Micam X is the place where seminars, innovative and technological proposals were presented to operators with the aim of creating and proposing solutions relating to new market trends, including current styles, research on materials, sustainability, and the future of Retail.


During the last Milan Fashion Week, Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana asked three schools of excellence to hold specific talks on the education sector within the Fashion Hub, in the beautiful setting of Palazzo Giureconsulti.

On February 22 we presented “From the Earth to the Moon: Swatch’s journey towards innovation”.

Paolo Ferrarini, author, lecturer, and member of our Scientific Communication Committee interviewed Carlo Giordanetti, Swatch International – CEO, Swatch Art Peace Hotel.

They talked about Swatch’s DNA and how it knows how to combine innovation and everyday life. At the center of the dialogue is the Bioceramic MoonSwatch, a collection that in March 2022 unleashed collectors and enthusiasts from all over the world.

Giordanetti described the mix of traditional communication and impressive marketing gimmicks.

On February 25, three of the most important fashion schools in Italy, IED, Istituto Marangoni and Accademia Costume & Moda participated in a talk “A privilege observatory for Human Resources” on human resources in the fashion sector at the Fashion Hub.

Sara Azzone, our director of the Milan Campus; Anna Rogg, Careers Service & Industry Relationship Senior Manager at Istituto Marangoni; Olivia Spinelli, Coordinator & Creative Director Ied Moda Milano were moderated by Paola Arosio, Head of Sustainability and New Brands, Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana.

They talked about how Fashion’s “race for talent” continues and how Human Resources departments work within luxury brands. These offices are responsible for the recruitment, development, and retention of young professionals in multiple fields of expertise (product, sustainability, communication, etc.)

The speakers identified that this talent gap will be one of the biggest challenges fashion brands will face in the next decade.

That same afternoon, Adrien Roberts, our International Director of Education, talked about “Building a Digital Portfolio” and shared all the tips to keep the attention of those who will look at the portfolio.

A very visual presentation, full of examples of work by our students, but not only, and which ended with the advice of a professional who sees thousands of fashion portfolios every year.

After the presentation, the students were greeted by Adrien for an individual discussion.

Thanks to Carlo, Paolo, Sara, Adrien, Paola and the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana for having invited us and to all the people who came to see such interesting talks.


Within the new format of Feel the Yarn®, inspired by the six pillars of the 4sustainability® system: People, Trace, Materials, Chem and Planet, called Feel The Green, the works of our Master’s students in Creative Knitwear Design were exhibited.

Within the initiative artists and designers who animated some “events within the event”: among these, the exhibition “The wonder”, with photographic and material inspirations for the S/S 2024 curated by Elisabetta Scarpini with the contribution of Modateca Deanna, our partner in the Master of Creative Knitwear Design and the collaboration of Camera Showroom Milano, and the presentation of the capsule collection created by our former student Marie Nardi, winner of the 2022 edition of the Feel the Yarn® contest.

A unique showcase for the sector which, for the first time in a single event, told the story behind the scenes of the sector, giving space and voice to its major interpreters and the values ​​that animate it, above all sustainability and creativity.

Congratulations Marie and good luck for your future!


In our Milan campus in Via Fogazzaro 23 from 17th to 24th of February 2023 we hosted Marco Rambaldi and his team.

The casting of the models, the fittings of the collection took place inside Accademia and, after the show, the shooting of the look book was carried out in our shooting lab.

It’s been two weeks full of commitments that also saw our students attend and participate the behind the scenes of a fashion show.

Congratulations Marco!


During Milan Fashion Week, thanks to Camera Showroom Milano, the first chapter of the “MADE IN MILAN – URBANISTICS OF FASHION” project was presented in the Chiostri di San Barnaba and now the exhibition is visible at our Milan campus in Via Fogazzaro 23.

A retrospective that focuses on six important Italian designers, particularly representative of that Milanese fashion milieu which, starting from the mid-1970s, began to emerge and establish itself (also) abroad.

Inspired by the title of the documentary dedicated to Armani by Martin Scorsese, the exhibition brings into dialogue the illustrations by Jacopo Ascari, who has captured with his unmistakable sign some Milanese places closely linked to fashion, and the looks of six designers who, with their extraordinary work, have contributed in a decisive way to the birth and development of Italian fashion.

For this first step of the initiative, the creative designers chosen were Gianni Versace, Gianfranco Ferré, Mila Schön, Krizia, Ottavio and Rosita Missoni, Giorgio Armani.


Special thanks go to Jacopo Ascari, Camera Showroom Milano, Federico Poletti and Bonaveri.
