The Accademia Costume & Moda releases Academic titles equal to Undergraduate Programs (180 credits) and Master’s Degrees Programs (60 credits), and attendance certificates for its Post Graduate, Intensive and Summer School Programs. Culture and Experimentation merged with Design and Craftmanship, are our drive in offering to the Fashion System and to the Entertainment Industry, young designers able to respond to their needs. In its 50 years, Accademia has developed many talents in all its fields of reference. We cannot possibly list them all but we can give you a slight taste of some of their most outstanding achievements.

And to make the list even more complete many are the Senior Designers working for the fashion industry both in Italy and abroad for companies like Max Mara, Givenchy, Dolce e Gabbana etc. As for the show business/entertainment industry, we are the proud starting point for Academy Award winners like Manlio Rocchetti (“Driving Miss Daisy”) also nominated for the BAFTA Awards for “Gangs of New York“, and top level costume tailors like Francesca Sartori and Gianna Gissi, both winners of several David di Donatello (Italian Oscar Awards), Stefano Canulli (Costume Designer for Cirque du Soleil, Illustrator and close collaborator of Thierry Mugler on various projets) or professionals who have worked for celebrities like Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez (Vrettos Vrettakos) and many more… The Accademia is only the starting grid.
