Architecture for Fashion: how spaces become value.
THE COURSE: All the most renowned brands need not only to improve the quality of their products, but also to enhance their prestige, style and refinery. In order to do so, they choose architecture. From showrooms to shops, fashion needs stylists, photographers and pattern makers but also architects.
For this reason, a course in fashion architecture was launched aiming to train designers to interpret the identity of a brand and transform it into an architectural space. Designers will be able to reflect the uniqueness, luxury and elegance of a garment in the space designed to exhibit it. By delving into the needs of the fashion industry, designers will acquire specific skills that will be useful in the whole luxury sector and will make themselves familiar with an industry characterized by a timeless fascination and constant rewarding job opportunities.
Thanks to this course, participants will deepen technical and composition issues of fashion styling. The course will be made of 122 hours of lectures, 60 hours of laboratories and numerous speeches and lectures by distinguished professionals. At the end of the course, students will take part in a stage in the most prestigious design studios of the international scenario.
The course will take place in the prestigious base of the Fashion Research Italy Foundation. This base is a perfect example of the requalification of a former industrial plant- ex plant of the La Perla group- through modern technologies. Covering an area of 7.000 sqm, the base is the first and biggest didactic museum hub in the Fashion field of the Italian region Emilia Romagna. Hence, designers will be able to smartly meet the needs of any client in any field.
By ensuring numerous excellent cultural references and a renewed attention to the most modern product-display technologies, the course provides designers with practical skills that can be immediately and easily applied. Lastly, thanks to an experience in the most renowned companies, designers will be provided with efficient job opportunities.
THE FOUNDATION: Fashion Research Italy is a non-profit Foundation founded by Alberto Masotti- former president of the La Perla Group. The Foundation aims to enhance the importance and the innovation of “Made in Italy” thanks to educational activities and research. Thanks to the close relationship with internationally-renowned professional and academic actors, the foundation is the perfect place where to specialize one’s skills, achieve an innovative training and an efficient integration into the labor market.
