Creativity means experimenting with our familiarity with tradition and elaborating on it. Tradition, in its turn, filtered through contemporary awareness and benefitting from new technologies, is transformed into innovation. The fashion system functions as a reflection of the contemporary world and as a prediction of the near future, but also as a dream, as emotions. Our emotions are always the main driving force of the act of creation

Frequent Asked Questions

· What are the objectives of this course?

This Masters course is designed to keep a very close relationship with the real working world, exploiting the opportunity to dialogue with and learn directly from people who occupy leading roles in the fashion business. The course aims to develop students’ ability to shape their ideas as a force for generating products, going beyond superficial creativity. It is an advanced form of training that forges contacts between students and all aspects of the design process, from the up-front thinking to the execution and from presenting to communicating. At the end of the course, students will be ready to play an effective role in fashion firms.

· Who is it intended for?

This Masters targets graduates in design disciplines, young designers, fashion designers and other creatives, in general everyone who aspires to develop further on their existing knowledge by dialoguing with professionals who work in the field and make their experience, their awareness and their vision available.

· Requirements

The maximum number of students that can enrol in each of our Masters courses is 20. Candidates are selected in two phases. The first selection is a screening based on the documentation received from the student. If the application meets the requirements, an individual interview is arranged with the Course Leader. The candidate’s evaluation takes in consideration all the elements that contribute to an individual’s profile into consideration: portfolio, previous studies, work experience, extracurricular activities and letters of presentation.

· What marks this course apart?

Its teaching staff: Course leader: Gabriele Colangelo, Fashion designer Born in Milan in 1975, Gabriele Colangelo started making his first steps at a very tender age in his family atelier, which specialised in making furs, and it was from his parents that he learned about the care to be taken in creating his own collections. While he was still very young, just after completing his classical high school studies, he won a scholarship with the Italian National Chamber of Fashion as a fashion stylist. His first position designing for the Versace Women’s Jeans brand was followed by other more important ones with Versace and with Just Cavalli Woman. Step by step, Gabriele Colangelo’s interpretation of his fashion ideal of a woman gradually took shape: lyrical, discreet, refined, timelessly graceful but also open to innovation. His first capsule collection was launched in 2008 and it was in the same year that he won the Alta Moda Roma and Vogue Italia Who is Next Award. In 2015, he was appointed Creative Director with the Giada brand, which was founded in Italy by Rosanna Daolio in 2001 and has been expanding vigorously in China since 2006. In 2016, he won the IDA International Design Award for Fashion.

Course programme


Students work on how to approach and set up the collection and its process. The creative idea takes shape by assimilating two basic elements: the fabric, with its infinite solutions and possibilities for experimenting, and the model, i.e. the expression of how volume is applied to the material. The collection is generated by applying the method of styling, so as to maximise its impact and convey a clear, incisive message. The presentation is conceived of as a runway show, paying due attention to the media opportunities of sharing.
