There is no better place to pursue a truly superb design learning experience than Milan, the world’s capital of fashion and design.
In Milan, you will be inspired by artistic culture and immersed in a thriving commercial design district. It is a creative environment like no other.
Milan is a magnet for innovative and forward-thinking creatives who share your passion for design. As a student, you will have the chance to meet some of Italy’s finest artisans and designers as you visit emerging-label boutiques, prominent fashion ateliers, architecture and design studios, and leading-edge communication agencies.
You will also get to visit some important production and manufacturing facilities known for fine Made in Italy craftsmanship. And of course, you will explore streets lined with world-renowned fashion and design flagship stores, including Cappellini, Driade, Kartell, Versace, Armani, and Valentino.
Every year, during Milan’s famous Fashion Weeks and the Salone del Mobile furniture fair – Design Week, the city becomes a giant showroom offering exhibitions, conferences, performances and parties all day long—and all night, too. You can take part in these events, as well as in the related contests. Some highlights of the city include:
When you need a break from thinking and creating, you will have the rest of Europe within easy reach. Thanks to excellent air and railway connections, you can spend a weekend in France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, or the UK. And if you love mountain sports, Milan is right next to the Alps and the lakes of northern Italy, with amazing landscapes that have inspired artists for centuries.
