Accademia del Lusso

School of Fashion & Design

Accademia del Lusso School of Fashion & Design opened in 2005 with the specific objective of providing high-quality education to young people interested in starting a career in the fashion and design industry as well as professionals already working in the sector who wish to improve or update their skills and knowledge.

The educational method of the School of Fashion & Design is based on an innovative approach, with two learning paths that are closely connected: the creative technical path aimed at production and the administrative path dedicated to management.

The distinctive teaching method of Accademia del Lusso is also the result of the expertise and experience of the teaching staff, all of whom are established professionals in various fields of fashion and design. This allows for a multi-disciplinary education that is continuously updated and firmly linked to the job market.

In addition, the School of Fashion’s collaboration with important businesses in the industry allows students to work on ongoing projects or projects that have already been implemented and to complete their education with a highly instructive experience that can only be guaranteed through direct contact with the professional world.
