The constant support of teachers and industry experts, will nurture students’ creativity allowing them to fully develop their personality as contemporary designers. Attendance to Milan and Florence fashion weeks, a field trip to Premiere Vision in Paris during the final year, and a practical internship complete the course.
There is no other place to study Fashion Design in Italy as this area: just 45 mins away from Florence, 15 mins from Pisa, yet still out of the main touristic routes, allowing international students to be immersed in the Italian culture.

I chose Modartech because I immediately thought that it had all the right credentials to give me an excellent training in the field of fashion: for the work program defined by the institute, the professionals who work there and for the many activities, competitions and events in which Modartech participates with students, becoming an important springboard for young designers.
Prodotto Uomo Uptobe
I did a 360 degree research on fashion schools. What struck me about Modartech was based not only on theory but on practice, that is, how you actually work in a company. This was the winning key that allowed me to immediately understand the rhythms of fashion at both the stylistic and design level.
I started as a game to work with fabrics, creating small garments and by the time I realized that I could not devote myself to anything else in life. For me Modartech was a great opportunity of growth that led me to learn about the entire production process and the professions of the fashion system, moving me towards creating the fashion product.
