In the past few days, Maya has received two university acceptances to study for the European Bachelor of Science in Design/ Bachelor of Arts (Fashion Design), one in Milan and the other in Berlin.
Accademia Del Lusso, Italy
The Accademia Del Lusso in Milan, Italy offers a 3-Year Course in Fashion Design: an international programme that follows the entire process of creating fashion collections, from the first sketches to the final creation. It begins by providing an overview of the evolution of fashion and design and the relationship between fashion and history, society, art, and culture. This provides a foundation upon which students continue to build throughout their career, and which will inform their research and choices when developing creations.
Examining Italian and international case studies is also an important part of the course. Students gain on- and offline trend research techniques, learning to anticipate future trends and to work in line with concept and market demands. Practical workshops teach a range of essential skills such as fashion sketching and drawing, understanding fabrics, tailoring, how to use colour, sizing, using CAD for 2D and 3D pattern-making, and designing fashion prints. Students develop collections for womenswear, menswear, sportswear, knitwear, accessories, childrenswear, underwear, and swimwear.
During the course there is a focus on the importance of sustainable fashion and students learn about eco-friendly materials and production processes, including the respect of human rights in the textile industry. They learn how to successfully market their creations and acquire vital business skills for an enduring career, such as gaining knowledge about the various business types, brand management, and how to set up a business. Final year students have the chance to showcase their creations in a professional standard end-of-year student Fashion Show before an international audience including industry experts, media, and influencers. https://www.accademiadellusso.com
