Course Overview

The 3-Year Course in Fashion Design at Accademia del Lusso Milan gives students working skills and strategic ability in order to shape them into professionals who are able to plan, design, develop and produce fashion collections that are in line with market demands. The aim of the course is to provide students with the necessary skills to be able to design and create entire collections that are competitive and valid both from a commercial and a creative point of view. Students develop skills in design, drawing, pattern making, and sewing as well as learning research skills and essential collection planning techniques used in the fashion job market.

The first year covers the core elements of the Fashion System, introducing students to a wide range of technical skills that will serve them over the following years and throughout their careers.

The second-year allows students to deepen their understanding of the Fashion Design industry and further expand their skills. Students learn the techniques that will allow them to start work on their personal collections that form part of the third year and will be their professional passport for the future.

The third-year offers advanced training in the main skills needed to work as successful fashion designers. Students hone their skills by developing personal collections under the supervision of experts and preparing their final portfolio.
