The experience of studying in Rome can be truly unique and very personal. The inspiration that an individual can draw from Rome’s culture, history and beauty are unquestionable. In this sense, it can not be a coincidence that important companies such as BVLGARI, GUCCI, FENDI and VALENTINO as well as important Costume Makers are born in Rome or have chosen the Eternal City as their creative hub. Our students, after having absorbed Rome’s heritage, work and travel globally enriched with this unique atmosphere.

Listen to what they say about us


Fashion has become experiential and needs young professionals able to understand and interpret the social contexts in which they will work and the different markets and global economy.

It becomes essential to combine management and communication skills to product culture through study paths able to connect design method,  technique and competence to product, innovation, circularity, sustainability, responsibility, communication, narrative, community, diversity, inclusivity and authenticity.

Milan is the most natural choice in which these contents can be expressed and delivered with the contemporaneity that they need and with the opportunities that this city can offer to students that will decide to live this educational experience consolidated in more than 50 years of history and a placement ratio well above 87% on BA programmes and 93% on MA programmes in Italy and in the world.
