Milano and London Schools of Design

Milano has always been the capital of fine design. The city’s unique vision combines the creative legacy of the past with innovation and a local entrepreneurial spirit that looks to the future. This approach aimed at research and experimentation is also reflected in the Marangoni School of Design, where students deal with visual design, production, interior and high-level design projects.

London infuses design with eclectic creativity, a contemporary and innovative vision, a beacon for a new generation of conscious and committed creatives, whose search for modern solutions is combined with an ethical and sustainable vision. Both schools provide fertile learning environments that lead to an exclusive blend of cutting-edge design, new technologies and entrepreneurial skills, where theory and practice meet successfully.

Istituto Marangoni & Cappellini working together for Design

The Cappellini company has always been attentive to the latest trends in the design industry, constantly measuring up with young students and designers from different backgrounds, cultures and education. In this moment in history, Milano and London are where the newest and most interesting trends and industrial design developments come together.

Giulio Cappellini and the company’s creative team have therefore been very happy to design the interiors of the Milano School of Design, as well as the interiors of all Istituto Marangoni schools, including the London school. This is a moment in which industrial culture and learning are getting even closer to the capitals of fashion, art and design.

There is still much to create in the field of industrial design; direct contact and exchange with young creative minds at Istituto Marangoni, namely the new school on Via Cerva, will be an ongoing stimulus to rethink and renew what has been done so far. Allowing young people to experience design in all of its forms, from furnishings to lighting, through to the classrooms themselves, will offer them quality learning environments and stimulate their creativity. Already a byword for Italian excellence in fashion education, Istituto Marangoni is making an important contribution to the world of contemporary design with its Design Schools, demonstrating, through the works of students, that “design” is now a complete, global concept, from the initial idea through to communication.

  • Istituto Marangoni works with companies like Prada, Louis Vuitton, Disney and Mercedes-Benz to ensure that students learn from leaders and participate in their projects.
  • The university has a career center that helps students to establish business contacts, find interesting vacancies, draw up a high-quality portfolio and find a job.
  • 87% of alumni receive job offers from leading companies in the industry including Valentino, Chanel, Dior, Dolce & Gabanna, Gucci, Fendi, Versace, Giorgio Armani and more.

Particular attention is dedicated to key skills such as fashion design and collection development, fashion styling and creative direction, and fashion business and marketing strategies.  The overall aim of the course is to introduce participants to a future career in fashion, or as preparation for further study in the field. Participants are introduced to fashion design through hands-on tasks and projects such as fashion illustration and basic garment construction, putting together and designing a basic collection. Meanwhile in fashion business the course introduces key notions in marketing, in basic finance, in brand management and in digital strategy for social media and e-commerce. As well as contemporary visual communication techniques covering digital media channels, the role of fashion styling takes a look into the exciting world of photo-shoots, and of different and innovative ways in presenting and editing digital fashion images. 

    The course moves through a broad overview to the fashion system and industry, including the history of fashion and contemporary aesthetics and culture. Furthermore participants gain a solid foundation in Istituto Marangoni training methods in multiple subjects, and experience the intensive learning approach set at undergraduate level, overarching various academic tasks including presentation skills and research methodology. In order for participants to reach the necessary levels of skill and academic rigour required in higher education, the course also aims to enhance critical and independent thinking, and ultimately, help them identify where their true passion lies. Attention is given to linking these important ‘pillars’ of the fashion industry; design, business and styling, and to understanding and developing the principle characteristics of academic study. The objective of the course is to develop an individual approach to creative expression and conceptual thinking, with participants creating their ‘own brand and fashion aesthetic’, finishing with a broad and individual portfolio of work in key fashion disciplines.
