THE TESTIMONY OF ALICE GRONCHI, FORMER STUDENT OF THE FASHION DESIGN COURSE

A Fashion School is valid if it provides its students with the right tools to be attractive in the world of work. Creativity is the indispensable starting point on which build the future. Ideas and talent, however, if they are not properly cultivated and conveyed towards an ad hoc path, do not allow to enter the market. The skills combined with creativity are the best business card for those who want to work in fashion.

Alice Gronchi, Istituto Modartech former student of the Fashion Design Course, she agreed to give her testimony by answering some short questions that briefly outline her path.

1. WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

After working for many years as PRODUCT MANAGER line manager at Sabatini SpA, and for a year with the same qualification for Peuterey Group, in the end I chose to go the path of freelance.
Today I follow the production of a sportswear line for a company in the area.

2. WHAT LED YOU TO MODARTECH AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE IT?

First I wanted to obtain an official recognition at an accredited Institute, then I chose Modartech to get in touch with the reality of the area where I live. I found these characteristics, important for me, in the school I chose. Conversely, I would have been forced to move to Florence or outside the region.

3. WHAT DID MODARTECH LEAVE YOU? WHAT ARE THE VALUES HE HAS PASSED ON TO YOU THAT HAVE HELPED YOU MOST IN THE JOB?

Unlike other schools, which tend to be much more theoretical, I really appreciated the practical aspect of the school and its concrete contents. Another very important aspect is that Modartech dedicates a remarkable commitment to placement in the world of work after courses, activities that other schools sometimes neglect.

4. HOW IMPORTANT IS TRAINING FOR ENTERING THE WORLD OF WORK?

It is essential, too many people have a “eighties” consideration of the fashion sector, an historic moment in which anyone launched themselves with improvisation and relying only on creativity. Today the world of work has changed and is highly competitive, sometimes wary of stylists.
To be a valid professional you need preparation and seriousness.
