Istituto Marangoni is a school where the passion for fashion unites cultures, ideas and people from all over the world. Entering Istituto Marangoni means being part of a very special community, where fashion is the common denominator in all its most cosmopolitan aspects. The four sites of Istituto Marangoni are truly one of the most international student contexts in the world, with more than 4,000 students from 106 countries, each with infinite interests, styles, and knowledge. Attending this school is an experience of being immersed in fashion, learning and being enriched through contact with the most varied and interesting cultural realities. The new School of Art brings together, in one prestigious site, all the disciplines taught by Istituto Marangoni. The school is located in a historical building in via de’ Tornabuoni 17, in the core of the city, just a few steps away from Piazza S.Trinità and the museums of Gucci and Ferragamo. In addition to a range of long and short courses in fashion and design, the new Firenze school provides an intense programme of studies dedicated to art and encompassing History of Art, Art ‘Management’ and Visual Multimedia Art. The Florentine school is on the one hand characterised by the support of professors who are both professionals and highly specialized technicians in the ‘art of making’, and on the other by collaboration with an important French institution in the field of art teaching, the renowned Atelier de Sèvres (for Art courses). This completes the school’s innovative and prestigious profile.
This one-year course provides participants with the necessary skills, practical ability and knowledge in the most important disciplines in fashion, namely Fashion Design, Fashion Business and Fashion Styling, delivering an exciting 360-degree vision into the world of fashion.
Via a global ‘full immersion’ approach to the subject, this dynamic course offers a chance to engage in the industry from both a creative and business perspective. Particular attention is dedicated to key skills such as fashion design and collection development, fashion styling and creative direction, and fashion business and marketing strategies. The overall aim of the course is to introduce participants to a future career in fashion, or as preparation for further study in the field.
