Why Istituto Marangoni London?

Teach Fashion, Teach Art, Teach Design. Is it possible to teach fashion? That was the question that Giulio Marangoni, famous for his clothes, which were already being worn by the Italian aristocracy, asked himself in 1935. Istituto Marangoni has never stopped believing in the value of training, constantly updating its programmes to ensure they are in line with Italian and international market needs.

Since opening the first school in Milan (Fashion) in 1935, Istituto Marangoni has opened several new schools: London (Fashion) 2003, Paris (Fashion) 2006, Shanghai (Fashion) 2013, Milan (Design) 2014, Florence (Fashion & Art) and Shenzhen (Fashion) 2016, as well as opening Mumbai (Fashion) in 2017.

Today Istituto Marangoni continues to successfully teach fashion, as its founder wished. It also teaches design, which has many contact points and overlaps with the world of fashion: colour, materials and creativity.

With a wide range of course possibilities, preparatory, three-year undergraduate and master's courses, Istituto Marangoni has always maintained the goal of training the professionals of tomorrow in key sectors, such as design, communication and managerial coordination. The mission is to empower talent in fashion, art and design; to excel as a centre of professional and creative learning in the Fashion, Art and Design fields; to nourish international industries, providing talented Istituto Marangoni graduates from all over the world.

Students graduating from our BA (Hons) Degrees in Fashion Design, Fashion Styling and Fashion Business will be awarded a UK degree by Manchester Metropolitan University.

What Students Say:

“I learned a great deal about fashion from a very young age in my mother’s atelier, and later in high school, where I chose to specialize in textiles. I joined Istituto Marangoni in order to learn the best method of relaying my message and bring it to life on the catwalk. The school immediately turned out to be the perfect place to grow artistically. I spent a fantastic period cutting garments, sewing, constructing and reconstructing collections in the company of other participants, sharing laughs, interests and passions.”

“Istituto Marangoni has been a pivotal experience, both in terms of professional skills and human relations. I attended courses of fashion design, pattern making, and cutting; I studied history of fashion and history of art: the syllabus was very comprehensive and interesting. Istituto Marangoni made me understand that fashion was my true passion and that it could become an exciting work. Thanks to Istituto Marangoni, I had the opportunity to work with Gianfranco Ferrè, Gianni Versace and Prada. Thanks to these experiences I became creative director at Sonia Rykiel.”

“Istituto Marangoni promotes contests in search of new talent worldwide, and I won one of these contests in New Delhi, the city where I came from and where I was studying at a design school. I was awarded a scholarship to attend the Master’s Degree course in Milano, an experience that proved to be decisive for my career. At Istituto Marangoni they didn’t just teach me the secrets of my profession, they also allowed me to learn about aesthetics, the values of the Made in Italy style, and the importance of traditional manufacturing. To cut the story short: my brand now shows at Paris Fashion Week.”

“I graduated from Istituto Marangoni London with a Bachelors Degree in Fashion Design, and on that occasion I made a short fashion film on my collection, entitled ‘Dyadic’, directed by Sebastian Mantilla, which was shown at Miami Fashion Film Festival and Madrid Fashion Film Festival. Soon after, I started my menswear fashion business, catering to customers and celebrities from around the world. I have shown my collections in London and Paris, though I work on a bespoke basis, giving my customers the choice of customization and exclusivity.”
