90,000 firms and 800,000 jobs are the vital statistics of the Italian fashion system. If we relate them per capita to the country population, they translate into a world supremacy in terms of quality, quantity and economic impact.
The School of Fashion is a complete, exhaustive response to the increasingly diversified and specialised training requirements expressed by the fashion system.
A complete school in its own right, based on the principle of cross-fertilisation and the completeness of its teaching methods which, in line with IED philosophy, combines knowledge with know how, theory with practice.
Fundamental to this approach is the school’s relationship with the entrepreneurs and professionals working in the Italian fashion business, the world’s largest concentration of clothing industrialists and creatives.
The people who work in this industry have achieved success and international renown as a result of the fashion system’s ability to blend an entrepreneurial spirit with creativity and a perception for innovation.
The School of Fashion points the way for its students to live and feel this sense of fashion, in an embracing whole and in its individual parts, as an interaction between different perspectives and a combination of diverse professional skills.
As the courses aim at training the professional profiles vital to the industry, these range from the more purely creative to the strategic areas, from organisational to commercial aspects, from marketing to image and communications work.
IED presents a plan in favour of its students to ensure that, in view of the end of the academic year, the quality of their studies in the second semester remains high, even from remote. IED will provide financial aids for the students, render farms and the access to the workshops.
From May 25th IED is preparing to gradually reopen its offices in Italy, after the lockdown due to the Covid-19 emergency. IED invites all those who wish to access the IED facilities to take vision of the notice downloadable from the news.
