The three-year course in Fashion Textile Design offers two specialisations:

Specialisation in Jewelry Design 
The specialisation in Jewelry Design focuses on the study of trends, technological tools and their application to produce jewel collections also in collaboration with external partners.
Each student can understand his/her own attitude, in relation to the training needs and “extra-curricular” activities, in order to realize a personal portfolio and complete jewels collections, showing the acquired skills, style and personal taste. 
Attending several subjects, both practical and theoretical, students acquire new skills with a special attention to technical sketching, materials selection and final realisation.

Specialisation in Fashion Marketing 
In the Fashion Marketing specialisation students gain the knowledge and experience required to shape their technical and creative abilities. They deal with strategic and executive aspects of the fashion market, acquiring the tools and capacities required to create innovative ideas in marketing and communication.
They develop a mature approach to the demands of current fashion systems, gaining also a solid consciousness of their work in relation to fashion culture, the different media and markets.
The skills acquired allow students to be prepared at all levels and in all fields of the fashion industry also by using external collaborations in the “extra-curricular” activities.

Remarkable is that teacher who accomplishes himself what he teaches to others.
(Italian proverb)

IED faculty are professionals that daily face the market. Here you can read their bios.
