The course is based on providing a solid cultural foundation to understand fashion as a social system tied to the historical evolution of styles, art movements and socio cultural and economic changes that influence society.

The Master in Fashion Design is conceived to be an approach to the world of contemporary fashion for all the students. The programme gives the necessary tools and knowledge to control the several stages if fashion production, from the creative idea to selling a collection; embracing the whole creative process and highlighting the creative and strategic value of a collection within a brand.

All the subjects taught on the Master in Fashion Design are interrelated so as to provide the knowledge required by the students. They will leave the course trained as professionals in this sector and will be able to apply the fashion concepts studied to other disciplines. Because this Master creates a bridge between the needs of the fashion industry and all related areas.

- To approach the world of fashion from a professional viewpoint, from its many aspects, in order to understand the complex processes involved in any fashion collection and the production of items of clothing.

- To acquire the essential techniques and theories needed to develop fashion projects: a knowledge of the history of fashion and its context, pattern making, fabric printing, sketching, experimentation in knitting and sewing workshops, modelling and the mastery of production processes.

- To apply this basic, theoretical and practical knowledge of fashion design to creating coherent collections, starting from a concept and a target.

- Students who come from similar disciplines will have the ability to use their previous knowledge and apply it to the skills and tools of the fashion industry.


The degree has a strong practical side, which intends to foster the creativity and personal style of the student, from the inception to the final product realisation. For this reason, it is divided in modules, which include a practical part with educational visits, group work and conferences by professionals, combined with the project part and work assessment. For each module there will be a test of the knowledge and skills acquired.

A key factor in the methodology of the course is for all the students to express their individual sensitivity as designers. The Final Project of the Master, which brings together all the knowledge gained on the course, is done individually. Each student must create and produce his or her own fashion collection, from the concept to the finished items, including their presentation.
