ABOUT US

Ferrari Fashion School Milan is a fashion school that’s been operating in the Fashion and Luxury field for 20 years, training new generations of professionals appreciated at international level.

The Academy, which is named after the founder Silvia Ferrari, was born with the aim of transmitting the passion to the new generations, “the knowledge” and “the know-how” in this field.

The didactic approach and the working methodology used by Ferrari Fashion School are based on six main pillars: culture, collaboration, sharing, comparison, interdisciplinarity and internationalization, which are some of the adjectives that most characterize the educational offer that touches, transversally, all or most of the professional figures involved in the fashion and design supply chain: whether it is a collection project, the launch of a new brand or an advertising or communication campaign.

Ferrari Fashion School offers its students the opportunity to work, during their training, on interdisciplinary projects, collaborating with companies, teachers, professionals and students from all over the world, from various courses and different disciplines, in order to offer them the opportunity to test themselves on the field, with the right theory but above all with a lot of practice.

Knowledge and Know-How are two fundamental characteristics to become capable, esteemed and recognized professional by the job market.

Our mission is to provide an excellent quality training to offer our students new and exciting opportunities for personal and professional growth.

THE ACADEMY: PARTNERS AND COLLABORATIONS

The close relationship between training and world of work means that Ferrari Fashion School prepares the new active protagonists of Fashion and Design thanks to the collaboration with companies, universities, and national and international institutional partners such as Piattaforma Sistema Formativo Moda, Confindustria Moda, Milano Fashion Week, Il Salone del Mobile di Milano, Camera Nazionale della Moda di Milano, Regione Lombardia and Comune di Milano, Triennale di Milano, Pitti Immagine, AUS – American University of Switzerland, Dar Al-Hekma University, as well as thanks to the direct contact with Companies, Ateliers, Design Studios in Italy and abroad.

TEACHING METHOD

In accordance with the 4 values on which Ferrari Fashion School was founded – i.e. quality, professionalism, ethics and passion – we felt it was our duty to provide our students with modern textbooks (both their look and content), which did not follow the typical editorial logic of profit, but which became a valid support for their studies. 

For this reason, we decided to design, write and publish two textbooks, which we keep constantly updated: the books “Fashion Design” and “Pattern Making” published by Ferrari Fashion School have become a valid support for the studies both of our students and the students of some Art and Technical high-schools with a focus on fashion, whose professors have requested a copy of the book to support the exercises of their lessons and to whom it was gifted for free.

The “Fashion Design” book illustrates in detail the methodologies of sketching, illustration and design of a Fashion and Accessories collection, starting from the basics, in order to allow even those who start from scratch to acquire the technical and graphic skills necessary to become a Fashion Designer.

The “Pattern Making” book, on the other hand, contains the Ferrari Fashion School method for sartorial and industrial pattern making and presents all original patterns. The pattern making process followed an extremely rigorous process to ensure quality, lack of errors and increasing difficulty of execution.
