Share |

MKS Milano Fashion School, an Academic Institute of Higher Education in the world of fashion, is a Made in Italy centre of excellence with a strong international focus, recognised in Italy and abroad for the high quality of its educational provision and for its close relationship with the business world.
Experimentation, Creativity, Innovation in fashion. This is what our fashion school teaches. Our talented and recognised professionals are able to pass on their own abilities with passion to the students who choose an educational course that will take them to the highest levels in the world of fashion.
The Institute, founded in 2001 by a group of professionals from the fashion industry with the objective of creating a Fashion School to pass on their passion and creativity, and enhance the tradition of real Italian fashion, has, over the years, invested in an academic body and in the collaboration with companies in order to offer students high-quality professional training, a working method and highly specialised research.
MKS Milano Fashion School, conscious of the development of the fashion market, is today an independent school with a strong heritage and an innovative vision for education. We aim at integrating Made in Italy fashion expertise and its production with a multidisciplinary approach, thanks to the contribution of designers, stylists, photographers and art directors integrated successfully into the professional world, both in Italy and abroad.
And out of the strong links with the professional world came “The Other Education”, the innovative project endorsed by stylist Cristiano Burani and MKS Milano Fashion School and the creation of the first style department within a fashion school.
This education project involves third-year students from the Fashion Design course, who will have the opportunity of working alongside Cristiano Burani and taking part in the creation of a collection that will star at the Milan Fashion Week.
Caterina Di Bert, Director of MKS Milano Fashion School and a manager with twenty years of experience in fashion education says: “I really wanted this project because it guarantees students a leading edge education and a step into the reality of the professional world. In a market that is evolving so rapidly, it is fundamental to give students the opportunity to acquire knowledge and to know how to tackle the creation of an item of clothing or a collection”.

Caterina Di Bert continues: “Thanks to the collaboration with Cristiano Burani, who has embraced our project with enthusiasm, we have created the first style department within a school, a place where students can participate actively in creating a collection, working alongside the stylist in developing the concept, selecting the fabrics, defining the lines… right up to the final show on the catwalk”.
Thanks to its strong links with the fashion world, MKS Milano Fashion School constantly looks out for new courses and study pathways, provides a dedicated careers service, which is renowned in the industry, and offers advanced lectures and trainings led by authoritative influencers.
Our courses bring together the tradition of higher education with new trends and the requirements of a market that is constantly changing.
Our tutors offer experience-based teaching in every type of training offer: Masters, Short Courses and Summer Schools to train all the main professional roles required in the sector, from creatives to managerial and strategic figures..
The study courses are based on a close relationship with a network of operators and companies in the industry, which turn to the Institute to select professionals to employ.
The percentage of job placements is one of the highest amongst fashion institutions – approximately 80% – also thanks to the commitment of the Internship and Professional Opportunities Department, which organises internships for all graduating students, and promotes employment meetings between companies and students.
MKS Milano Fashion School believes that accessibility to fashion careers is an incentive and not a creative limit. For this reason, the Institute wants to maintain approachable fees without disadvantaging the educational quality. Scholarships are also available, awarded on merit.
MKS Milano Fashion School is part of the Backstage Service Group, an accredited educational body of the Lombardy Region, ISO 9001-certified for the Quality Training System, Sector EA 37.
