Fall, Spring, Academic Year, Throughout the year
Established in 1973, Lorenzo de' Medici is one of the largest and leading international schools, with centers in Florence, Rome and Tuscania. LdM Certificate Programs offer students the opportunity to develop their potential individual creativity, artistic talent and technical and professional skills in Design, Restoration and Fine Arts.
Fashion Design is the creative aspect of the apparel industry, but that doesn't mean there is no concept to developing a line. Knowing that the consumer is the driving force behind every market, students are taught Consumer Behavior and Trend Forecasting, as well as Quality Assurance to meet consumer needs. An overview of the industry, a solid foundation of Costume History and Textile Science are just as important. Draping, Pattern Making, Construction and Illustration are taught at two levels and will allow the student to execute a collection to be displayed during a fashion show or an exhibit at the end of the 2nd year. These events will be a collaborative and interdisciplinary effort between Fashion Design and Fashion Marketing & Merchandising students as well as students from Photography and other departments.

Lorenzo de' Medici is committed to helping students realize their own potential, providing a quality education that will enable them to interact successfully with the community worldwide. The School aims to excite and enable students to experience a first class educational and social environment which enlarges their minds, stimulates their talent, and emphasizes the importance of values and the pursuit of knowledge. We also seek to develop real, multi-disciplinary projects in our classes that involve as many of our departments as possible. In this way, we prepare our students to face the actual challenges of their respective fields. Students obtain truly relevant work-related experience by collaborating with colleagues both inside and outside of their specific areas of interest. Then, the results of this collaboration are presented externally for public appreciation and expert evaluation.
I had always heard great things about LdM but I think you just have to experience first-hand how different it is from other schools. All of the advisors and professors seem genuinely interested in ...More
