About Accademia del Lusso

Accademia del Lusso is an authentic Italian school of fashion & design with a truly global outlook. We offer a unique learning environment at exceptionally high standards, in which international trends and techniques are infused with the values of the Made in Italy tradition, a benchmark for quality and innovation worldwide.

We believe in the creative individuality of each person who walks through our doors, and offer a setting in which all are encouraged to explore their own talent, passion, and creativity under the expert guidance of our teachers, who are all working professionals within the industry.

Our teachers have vast experience in their fields of specialisation and are passionate about sharing their insider knowledge and enthusiasm with the next generation.

Here you will not be limited to lectures or a classroom: our teaching goes way beyond the traditional methods, comprising workshops and seminars led by experts and visiting professionals, project work set by real fashion companies, networking opportunities, key sector events and locations, and a spectacular end-of-year student fashion show in a high-profile Milan venue before an international audience of experts, media, and influencers.

We are based in the most sought-after location within Milan’s famous fashion district: Via Montenapoleone. An unending source of inspiration and trends, there is no doubt about the importance of such a location to study fashion.

We have a thriving community of students from across Italy and across the globe and offer courses taught directly in English as well as an experienced international student office.

It is on this very street that many of Italy’s most famous luxury brands have their flagship stores.
The second location, where most lessons take place, is the Luxury Lab on Via Chioggia, minutes away from Corso Buenos Aires featuring the highest concentration of clothing stores with over 350 shops and outlets. This is where the student office and technical labs are, including the design, textile, web design, and visual merchandising labs.

Accademia del Lusso is affiliated with estate agencies in Milan to assist all students in finding suitable accommodation near to the school. Most students choose to live in the city of Milan in rented accommodation, and we provide full assistance for international students who wish to do the same. We are also affiliated with a university campus about 35 minutes away on the train, in the quiet countryside of Brianza at the foot of the alps, between Milan and Como. At the campus, on-suite, private rooms are available as well as three meals per day and all on-campus facilities.
