In collaboration with CRISTIANO BURANI
The Creative Director of a fashion or luxury brand is responsible for the global image. He or she is entrusted with the task of defining the personality of the brand or a single product. From the concept of the collection, through the concept of the show space, to advertisement campaigns and right up to the fashion show, he or she has to emphasise the emotional value of the brand and win the loyalty of its own target customers, supporting and encouraging the storytelling of the brand at the same time.
Creativity, organisational ability and leadership are indispensable qualities for a creative director.
The Master in Fashion Design & Creative Direction allows those who already have a basis in fashion design to complete their education and learn all the complex aspects of the creative director.
The structure of the Master course is divided into three areas of study: Creative Direction and Fashion Design, Brand Management, Communication Strategy.
The Creative Direction module is carried out in collaboration with the CRISTIANO BURANI Style Studio (Cristiano Burani is a famous Italian designer whose designs have been worn on the catwalk for several years during the Milan Fashion Week) and confronts in a practical and realistic manner the internal creative and organisational process that leads to the design of a collection: planning, visualisation, briefing and implementation of a concept, analysis of trends, research of colours, materials and fabrics through the meeting with suppliers and the transformation of an inspiration into a fashion collection.
