The new generation of fashion designers must have the capacity to identify and analyze contemporary trends to reprocess them in the form of the original story, trying to balance individual creativity with the concept of fast fashion from the world and from the market. Equally important is knowing how to combine these elements with a solid knowledge of design and visual culture of the fashion world.

The student explores the culture of contemporary fashion by studying the ideas and the work of the icons that have influenced the more recent history of costume and those of designers who are dictating the trends of taste, style and the market for the foreseeable future.
