Istituto Marangoni

Istituto Marangoni

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. To answer this question, he founded the Istituto Artistico dell’Abbigliamento Marangoni, or the Marangoni Artistic Clothing Institute in Milan. It was a school to train professionals and technicians specializing in the field of fashion.

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. In the past few years, Istituto Marangoni has opened four new schools: London in 2003, Paris in 2006, Shanghai in 2013, and Milano Design in 2014. Istituto Marangoni now opened the new School of Fashion, Art & Design in Florence on September 2016 and recently in Shenzhen (2016), Mumbai (2017) and Miami (2018), the international capitals of fashion, design and luxury.
