From the classrooms of the IED in Rome to leading a luxury line for a fashion company committed to creating environmentally friendly products, it is sometimes a short journey.
It is this path that Nicoletta Ginetti has followed, an IED Roma Alumna with a Diploma in Fashion Design. She is now responsible for a line of products within The Giving Movement brand.
The philosophy of the brand is very clear: Small acts multiplied by many can transform the world. A set of principles that also guides Nicoletta's work.
How did your path continue after graduating from IED?
Let me start by saying that the IED programme played a significant role in my career development. After graduating from IED, I immediately got into the world of fashion and have never stopped since.
It was after several training internships that I received my first assignment as a Junior Womenswear designer at Roberto Cavalli. Since I held a variety of roles during that period, it served as a stepping stone in my career. I reluctantly left Roberto Cavalli after two years for a higher position at PHILIPP Plein, a pivotal brand in my career. From Junior to Senior, then Head Designer, I was responsible for the women's line of this luxury brand for six years.
What does your work entail nowadays?
Today I am managing a luxury start-up line in Dubai for the brand The Giving Movement, whose name is Fifty Made, which will be available on all platforms and in stores soon.
The Giving Movement is a sustainable brand that has been very successful ever since it was founded three years ago. Similarly, Fifty Made was created with a luxury imprint as a niche brand. Sustainable and entirely Made in Italy.
What role does sustainability play in the fashion world?
I think that sustainability is no longer a taboo in the fashion industry. In order to ensure a better future for the next generation and the planet, more and more brands are contributing to initiatives such as recycling and sustainable production processes.
Nicoletta now holds a key position in a company that pays close attention to the traceability of raw materials and the impact of every product. Consequently, organisations are seeking candidates who are prepared for this paradigm shift, and IED Roma's Master Course in Fashion Design is designed to meet this need. In fact, in this course, students learn how to work with a production fabric that is increasingly committed to making a positive impact on the environment and people.

Eleven capsules were presented on the catwalk, accompanied by three accessory collections and four jewellery collections. Amid the splendid backdrop of the Roman aqueduct, over three hundred guests attended the event, to cheer on the young designers who recently graduated.
In recent years, there has been a significant increase in interest in sustainable fashion, leading to a substantial shift in the industry. Here are some professions revolving around this field.
In recent years, all sectors have been increasingly focusing on the major themes of sustainability. But what are the most virtuous examples?
