The Academia Italiana (art, fashion and design school) was founded in Florence in 1984. Since opening the college doors, it has been one of the leading fashion schools, design schools and art schools in Italy and Europe for artistic, professional and linguistic training at post-secondary and university level.
They’ ve produced thousands of graduates, qualified and ready to make their mark in the design world. According to the programme of studies chosen the degree awarded is recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education (MIUR). Over that time they ’ve grown too, expanding our college’s horizons with new campuses in Rome and Bangkok, and developing our educational offering to keep pace with the rapidly changing industry.
There ’re looking forward to continuing their fine tradition of thinking, making and connecting for many years to come! Each of the three campuses is characterized by the different offering of academic programmes available. At the Florence campus the courses offered include Fashion courses (through the school of Fashion), Design courses (Interior design, Product design, Textile design, Graphic design, Photography, Window displays design and many others offered by the school of design). The Rome school offers courses in Fashion design, Interior and product design, Graphic design and Jewellery design.
AN EVENING OF FASHION AT MOYO
A special opportunity for the Accademia Italiana’s fashion design students happened on September 17 at Moyo in Florence. One of the most stylish bars in Florence showcased a team of six designers as part of Vogue’s Fashion Night Out, an event speaking the language of fashion that invaded the city all night long.
In the spotlight: Sarah Ciampalini with her minimalist aesthetic expertly mixing two colors, black and white; then the aquatic prints of Elisa Bartolini‘s collection, displayed in long, elegant designs modeled among the tables of the bar on Via dei Benci, along with Giulia Marchesi‘s “double personality” outfits inspired by Pirandello that stood out for their tailoring. Among the other designers, Deborah Colonnelli concentrated her creativity on Victorian England, in amazing capes made of synthetic fur.
The unusual fashion show also included a masculine presence, in the unconventional designs of Jovan Stevanovic and Fernanda Gracia Pena. The former focused on chromatic contrasts and psychedelic prints, and the latter on the use of unexpected materials such as pieces of plastic woven into fabric. A successful event that once again demonstrated the Accademia Italiana’s involvement in the city through glamorous initiatives, in this case in the realm of fashion design, the leading program of the school.
