Course

Today, accessories make fashion. Shoes, jewelry, handbags, and hats are icons of style and taste, symbols of distinction and identity, and witnesses of the made in Italy quality.

For this reason, the major fashion brands always give more importance to accessories in their multiple interpretations requiring dedicated professionals. Therefore, the theoretical training in the classroom alternates with case studies and practical activities in the field, leading to the achievement of a fundamental objective: the acquisition of specific methods and techniques to face the world of work.

The Specializing Master in Fashion Accessories & Jewellery: Design & Management is addressed to junior profiles of a ‘hybrid’ character, with the ability to combine specific design skills on particular product categories of the accessory supply chain (from jewelry to footwear, handbags, up to eyewear and hats), together with a knowledge of production processes and managerial strategies.

This robust specialization is typically acquired after several years of work experience and traditionally not trained within academic courses. The Specializing Master represents, therefore, an accelerator of specialized skills, able to make profiles immediately operational in a business context.

Attendance is mandatory for at least 75% of the programme activities.

Training objectives

The Specializing Master is designed to join creativity and strategy, design and management, experimentation and tradition, technology and craftsmanship, providing methodological tools and skills to train professionals, with applications ranging from product design to brand management.

The Specializing Master trains professionals who, with different skills, can contribute to the creative and strategic phases within the fashion accessory sector: from design and collection development to brand management.

These figures integrate multidisciplinary skills (design – management – communication), which are in great demand by fashion companies and are usually not covered by traditional academic paths, primarily only oriented towards one disciplinary field.

Within the world of fashion accessories, these professionals can lead and coordinate brand management processes, from the declination of the brand language on the different lines to the planning and development of accessory collections, up to the management of the product communication process.
