Great hands-on experience

I attended the three-year course in Fashion Design. Since the start of the course Accademia's environment offered full dedication to each student creative side and professionalism. Teachers are skilled experts who teach with love and discipline.

Accademia del Lusso has given me the chance to take part in a number of events for practical fieldwork during this time, from backstage support during the Milan Fashion Week to the end-of-year fashion shows organised by the school, together with many national and international competitions we were able to participate as students during the year.

On the third year, Accademia organised a career day, in which we were able to meet major fashion companies representatives. This is how I managed to find my internship for last summer. I am grateful to Accademia, I had a wonderful experience.

Amazing month spent during my Summer Course in Fashion Design

Throughout this summer course I got a unique chance to learn a lot of important things in the fashion industry. The program was divided into four different weeks, each with its own beauty and super exciting knowledge. First week was about fabrics and research, where you learn the key to innovation. Second week, was about drawing, while the third one was about moulage and how to manipulate fabrics on the manequin, ending with photoshop and illustrator. To sum up, I learned many interesting and valuable things that one don’t even realize it’s possible in just a month! I really enjoyed it and do recommend it for anyone interested in fashion. Finally, the staff and instructors were super supportive and friendly, all in all quite the positive environment. It is indeed a unique experience that I am glad I went through!

What would you improve about this program?
Just regarding the accommodation, it should be made clearer that it is not really close to the university. Otherwise, it is a really great program!

I am coming back for my Master's degree

I attended the summer course in fashion design because I wanted to experience fashion in Milan and I got even more than I expected. At the end I added two more weeks and spent three wonderful weeks in NMilan and Accademia.
Professors were very kind and friendly, the student help office helped me settling in and find an apartment. I eventually shared a flat with my course mates and that was very nice. The program was very detailed and at the same time it covered many topics quite new to me, the most interesting thing was to see how the Made in Italy is rooted in the culture and how it reflects in fashion.
We visited fashion labs and had the chance to check materials, technics and to talk to experience fashion rapresentatives.
I also traveled around Italy, I experience great food, great people as well as excellent weather.
I just enrolled for the Master's degree intake of October and I can not wait to go back!

What would you improve about this program?
I believe there is nothing more to do, it is already great!

Excellent Experience

Studying Fashion Product Design at Accademia del Lusso was a life-changing experience!! I’m so glad I did it! The course content was covered in a really enjoyable way and the small class sizes meant the learning environment was always relaxed but productive. The teachers were very supportive and knowledgeable, while still allowing students to explore and have autonomy over their own work. Studying in Milan meant I also had some amazing opportunities to be involved with prestigious fashion events, like Milan Fashion Week and Milano Unica, which were incredibly valuable. The opportunity to also participate in the end of year runway show was a true highlight also! If you are thinking about studying fashion in Milan, Accademia del Lusso will support you the whole way and you absolutely won’t regret the experience!!

Interior design course

I had a lot of fun during the course. I liked its practical focus, still maybe more theory would be nice as I feel many times that my knowledge is not complete. The AutoCad and Photoshop classes proved to be very useful. What I would suggest is to put maybe more emphasis on 3D and learning how to draw quick sketches. 3D is certainly a huge gap in the program. 3D Max or another program would be crucial to include.
Drawing sketches is incredibly important when meeting clients and this we barely practiced. I know one year is short and would suggest to consider having longer learning programs. 2-3 years sounds a reasonable timeframe.
I enjoyed the most preparing for meetings and meeting with clients. This gave me the opportunity to learn and improve the most.
The teachers were all very nice and always available for questions, sometimes even during weekends or evening hours. This I truly appreciated.
I definitely would improve the training materials. We barely used them and sometimes I miss not to have a book.
In general I find the school good and can recommend, but as mentioned above one year is too short to gain a deep knowledge and 3D design has an outmost importance to make this learning Module complete.

A great experience

I attended Accademia Fashion Brand Management course with the idea to explore more the possibilities in the field I am passionate about and I am really glad I did . The course gave me much insight about the industry and practical tools to explore also afterwords. Professors are very prepared and ready to help out. We also did some interesting sites visits, and at the end I decided to sign up to additional two weeks and stay longer in Milan.
The application process was quite smooth and the student office very helpful in giving all the info I needed to get around Milan (housing, transportation, were to eat, and so on). Although I am Italian I was surrounded by international students and I was practicing my English both with them and in class.
My time in Milan was great, and I wish I could return to Accademia to do my BA, maybe next year already :-)

What would you improve about this program?
I believe it was just great as it is for me. The program is really up to date with the current industry, maybe there could be more site visits, that I found really interesting.
