Accademia del Lusso

School of Fashion & Design in Italy

About us

Accademia del Lusso was founded in 2005, and is the School of Fashion & Design in Italy specialised in training key professional figures in the fashion, design and luxury sectors. Our main school site is on Via Montenapoleone, an inspiring location at the heart of Milan’s fashion district, and a mandatory stop for whoever wants to come into contact with the inner core of the fashion world.

Our mission

The School was born with the aim of connecting the needs of the job market with the aspirations of those who want to begin or develop their career in the Fashion, Design and Luxury System. Our mission is to transform the passion of young and talented students into a profession, shaping them into well-rounded professionals with a global perspective, who stand out in today’s competitive job market. The international quality of our courses combined with the expertise and experience of our professional teachers and a practised teaching method gives students a multidisciplinary study experience that both encompasses the very latest innovations from the fashion & design world and is directly linked to the real demands of the luxury sector.

Our teaching method: proven, dynamic and avant-garde

Innovative yet experienced, the School’s teaching method combines theoretical learning with practical experience to create a training environment that allows students to develop a broad ranging skill set as they study Fashion & Design in Italy. Courses have limited class sizes, making teacher-student interaction genuine and dynamic.

Our teachers: working professionals

All of the teachers at Accademia del Lusso are expert working professionals and have roles within business in the fashion, design and luxury sectors in Italy. Either working for well-known fashion brands and businesses or owning their own company, our teachers are students’ first point of contact with the real world of work. This makes for a very authentic learning experience and means that students are always up-to-date with the latest techniques and trends in the fashion & design industry. There are frequent opportunities for students to meet face-to-face with industry professionals and visit important businesses and brands.

Our courses: International quality

The international quality of our courses is outlined by the possibility to study in English – an essential language in today’s business environment; by our links with schools and universities from across the globe; and by the fact that our classes are made up of students from all over the world. Combined, these three elements guarantee that students experience working in an international environment and benefit from interacting with people from many different nationalities: simulating what students will encounter once they enter the job market in fashion and design.
