The Fashion Design Department offers a full-time, one-year design program leading to the Master Program in fashion design. This is a first professional program that stresses the development of technical skills and research and experimentation in the business of fashion design. Studying Fashion Design in Italy stands out a unique experience that offers a first-hand contact with that world, its protagonists and events. As a matter of fact, in Italy only it is possible to experience and perceive the evolution of a fashion system as complex and multifaceted as this one. The Fashion Design Department proposes a wide-ranging approach including design, cultural, productive, and marketing and communication aspects through a constant dialogue with the professionals working in those sectors. Designing fashion is a fascinating, complex adventure that requires talent, outspoken passion and expertise. The Master Course is meant to contribute to the development of professional figures capable of experience pf expressing their creativity cleverly and addressing appropriately the complex themes of the fashion. The curriculum is organized so that studio, laboratory, and classroom work give the graduate student a directed experience in the study of aesthetics, criticism, and contemporary art concepts; contemporary and historic art and design; current technology; the discipline of drawing; and the making of art. The goal of the Master program is to integrate the understanding of design with the construction of clothing so that the final products answer physical, aesthetic, psychological, and social needs within the context of contemporary fashion and industrial limitations. This approach provides a sound basis for a broad range of employment in the fashion industry. Other professional opportunities lie in merchandising, costume design, curatorial work, and computer-aided design.
