Along with this, students will be provided with all the practical tools necessary for design an article of clothing.
Lessons will help the student in organizing his/her own ideas regarding the planning of a project. The student will eventually have the opportunity to realize this project idea which has taken shape during lessons, so as to be able to come to a correct evaluation, choice and analysis of materials, and he/she will be able to manage with awareness the relationship between feasibility and expressive needs, together with that between quality/cost/limitations of materials and the original project. During the first year of study, attention will be primarily focused on developing the student’s capacity to assimilate basic information.
Durng the second year the student will begin to cultivate a personal path and to develop an innovative idea for a collection, carrying on with a furthering of the study and planning of fashion and design. During last year, other subjects, such as the technical structure of a collection, organization of a portfolio, visual communication and notions of marketing, will complete the student’s course of study, enabling him/her to know how to manage his/her own work.
At the end of every academic year parts of the works carried out will be presented to public.Doing so, the student will concentrate not only on the creation of his/her own article of clothing, but also on the dynamics and problems related to the formulation of a “fashion show” event (scenography, invitations,evaluation of the budget, press releases). The course will be completed with meetings, discussions and seminars held with fashion professionaists.
