Istituto Secoli, fashion school founded in 1934, aims to spread the culture of Made in Italy by teaching students a working method and the full knowledge of the creative, technical and manufacturing development sector processes. Studying at Istituto Secoli means becoming a fashion maker capable of creating garments designed in every detail and, for the three-year students, displaying their own collections during the Secoli Fashion Show; an event which allows the skills acquired during the training course to come to life. For talented graduates, the Institute brings them to the stage, on the most important runways for young creatives: the Designer to Watch project is where the school’s emerging talents interpret styles and trends within new collections- where experimentation and tradition merge.
