The Rome school proposes this course of study that derives its experience from academic programs developed in nearly thirty years of activities. Students in the Fashion Design program are stimulated to apply their creativity to projects developed for both the industrial and high fashion sectors. They will learn the secrets of the trade while at the same time strengthening their cultural foundation so that they will be prepared to enter the world of fashion with solid practical and theoretical knowledge. To this effect, the collections produced by students will be examined from a technical-creative perspective and analyzed with a marketing outlook.

A fashion designer must be able to pick up the signals of changes in taste to be able to continuously anticipate new trends. For this reason continual confrontation with the public and market sector is a must. During their third year, in fact, students will have the opportunity to present their collections to a specialized public. Accademia Italiana's fashion shows are international events attended by well-established industry professionals, the press and the media. As such they are a perfect launch for a young designer's career.

During the program there are many occasions for contact with industry experts and designers. Important designers are often invited to the school for meetings and conferences. These special opportunities create a lively and engaging environment at the school.

Among the various academic possibilities, students have the option to take some of their courses in other cities (at our school in Florence or overseas), allowing them to develop a dynamic and global approach to their subject. The Accademia Italiana is, in fact, an international school where creativity exists without borders.
