EDUCATIONAL MATERIAL AND LABS

The educational material composed of textbooks, booklets (digital or paper), product technical sheets, leather elements and liners, templates, bases sampling etc…is provided from the school, for free.
The students will need to own a laptop with Adobe Photoshop, and will have to get all the stationery and leather material on their own, and same about the materials needed for the graphic realization of projects, and their production, later, in the Labs, managed by the teacher.
The lab activities are optional and let the student realize, by paying, prototypes, samples or whole collections, taking advantages from external Craftwork Labs, in a partnership with the School and offering concessional prices. The prototyping and production cost depends on the type of product, materials and the number of pieces, and will be directly settled between the students and the Lab with which they will choose to cooperate. The best works will be then selected to be presented during Fashion Events and allow the students to work with the stylists to participate to the year-end runway show, presenting the accessories collection.
