History of Italian Fashion, taught in English (Thursdays, 5:30pm - 7:30pm)

From May 04, 5:30 pm until June 01, 7:30 pm

Today Milan ranks with Paris, New York and London as one of the top 4 players in the world of fashion. The development of an "Italian look" is generally thought to have taken place in the late 1970s, by Designers such as Armani and Versace.

Join us to learn more about Italian Fashion Designers (Armani, Prada, Versace, Le Sorelle Fontana, Pucci, Dolce e Gabbana, Max Mara, Fendi and many more) and understand why the Italian style is so famous and appreciated all over the world!

All this will be presented through video and images demonstrating the development of fashion trends since the 1950's.
