BOF · Badge of Excellence

This dynamic course cultivates the design creativity, individual style and personal vision of participants while they respond to the rapidly evolving landscape of fashion through a series of project-based activities that reflect different aspects of industry practice. In this way, participants are challenged to develop their thinking about fashion – what it is and what it can become – to realise their full potential, while gaining advanced fashion design skills together with industry preparation. Participants graduate with an understanding of their unique identity as designers and of their position in the fashion industry based on market intelligence. At postgraduate level, participants will already have experience in fashion design, pattern cutting, garment making and portfolio creation in order to successfully meet the challenges of this course in conceptual research, design development and experimentation, professional project development, collection development and marketing and personal branding. They are encouraged to work experimentally with the shape and construction of garments, with the use of renewable and sustainable resources and to devise imaginative ways of working with materials and techniques - the true, creative artisan of fashion combined with the excellence that is “Italianness”; internationally acclaimed craftsmanship, design and style. The strong design and practical elements of the course run alongside contextual, theoretical, conceptual and forward-looking perspectives, leading to a dissertation project accompanied by individually proposed practical work such as a fashion artefact or capsule collection. Istituto Marangoni’s professional links include guest industry speakers that provide participants with insight into the realities and the opportunities of fashion.
