Accademia Italiana; The International Institute of Fashion and Design
For nearly 50 years Italian designers have given rise to a style and to trends that have influenced fashion, interior design, product design, and visual communications all over the world.
The Accademia Italiana (Fashion school, Fashion Design School, Fashion Design academy, Design School and Art School) was established in Florence in 1984. For almost 30 years it has been one of the leading fashion schools, design schools and art schools in Italy and in Europe for artistic training at a post-secondary level. The Accademia Italiana of Bangkok is the only school in South East Asia with programs accredited by the Accademia Italiana in Italy. Today, studying at the Accademia Italiana’s campus in Bangkok, can lead to an important role within the fashion and design industries, and help to achieve huge success in the professional and artistic fields in Thailand and worldwide. Since 2007 The Accademia Italiana International has opened the Institute offering study programs in Bangkok.
From The President:
“Our school is an international institute that aims to propose its own study method in the field of design drawing from the experience acquired in Italy and spreading it throughout the world. Today design is an international phenomenon. It consists of proposing one’s own ideas tin a globalized world. Today young designers are called upon to interpret collective dreams and to solidify them through objects, images and clothing. These dreams are a part of life in any part of the world.”
“Bangkok is an important reference point in the Orient because here there is potential that can give an innovative contribution to international design, here the young people are greatly motivated and there is a huge interest in this field and in the applied arts. Young designers in Thailand can help Thai industry to grow and to acquire a primary role on the worldwide scene.”
