Looking to launch a career in fashion? Take note: one of Europe’s leading fashion and design schools is offering three fully funded scholarships to study a three-year BA (Hons) degree at its London campus.
If the British fashion scene is about breaking the rules, the Italian industry is about making them. Italian design is chic and luxurious, building upon tradition rather than only being driven by trends. Italians strive to create and redefine beautiful, timeless and durable style; Milanese catwalks are often graced by fashion so beautifully structured it is almost architectural.
With a rich heritage in the design and production of luxury clothing, Valentino, Versace and Missoni are just a handful of Italian designers who dominate the industry internationally. Their attitude, influence and work ethic is so deeply respected that many British fashion graduates buy a one-way ticket to Italy as soon as they’ve taken their cap and gown off. If an Italian job is the dream start to a fashion career, studying within Italy’s design ethos is an equally desirable launch-pad – and British undergraduates can study fashion design, business or styling within an Italian educational environment without even boarding a plane.
