Fashion in Residence

NABA and Cittadellarte Fashion B.E.S.T. create a brand new experience in the international professional education landscape. The intensive advanced courses offer the unique possibility to work both on artistic creativity and real production.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

The program foresees frontal lessons, lab activity and in-company visits/experience. Students of the three different training paths will work together in the lab area and will share ideas and working methodologies supported by a dedicated tutor. Every week a NABA Visiting Professor will hold a one-day lecture focusing on his/her professional field.
Lessons in the lab will constitute the core of the didactical experience and will be held by the Project Leaders of the three study paths and the tutor. The Project Leaders will be present once a week and will carry out teaching and project revision activity. Students will be able to use the lab also after class time, in order to complete their projects. At the end of the program, students will have the option of showcasing a presentation of their projects according to the schedule of the Milanese fashion events. At the end of the course students will receive an assessment by their teachers, as well as a final attendance certificate upon successful completion of the program.

Training paths

A-Gender Fashion

Cultural changes related to gender issues are generating a different approach in defining fashion categories. The traditional collection men/women is becoming less significant, while at the opposite we can see men and women in the same collection or entire collections that are designed for both genders. The historical competencies rooted in Biella area offer the opportunity to apply traditional technologies related to the a-gender production. Students will then research and design a capsule collection that combines the two different genres.

Textile research experience

In the textile area the demand for professionals who introduce both technological innovation of new aesthetics derived from traditional processes is constantly increasing. Embroidery, printing, texture, finishings, materials and colors can offer an endless array of possibilities that respond to market demand. Within the residence, with the weekly meeting with the visiting professor, students will conduct their experimentation in this field and, at the end, they will be able to propose their own textile collection.

Fashion Curation and Exhibit

This specialization is a novelty among the educational offerings in the fashion industry. The increasing diffusion of museums dedicated to fashion requires a brand new skilled staff, who can set new ways of telling and representing fashion, encompassing the old museum systems. The same need for a new story of fashion is leading to design completely new display. Within the residence, with the weekly meeting with the visiting professor, students will conduct their experimentation in this field and, at the end, they will be able to propose their own proposal of curatorship / exhibition.
