​Italy Study Abroad Fashion Students

The new travel study to Italy from Fashion and Apparel Studies offered in January 2017 was a great success! For many students, this was the first time traveling to Italy and staying in Florence and Milan, the two most important cities for fashion industry and Italian luxury brands.  It gave them a new appreciation for craftsmanship and brand heritage. The group started the journey in the charming town of Volterra known for Tuscany regional cuisines and wine, and we had the opportunity to make our own pasta using a pasta maker along with the chef one evening. In Florence the group attended the Pitt Uomo 2017, one of the world’s most important platforms for men’s clothing and accessory collections as well as visiting Polimoda, a fashion school established by Mr. Ferragamo for a guest lecture. While staying in Milan, the group visited VF European Headquarters in Switzerland and spent all day learning about the various departments for global brands they operate. Throughout the VF company’s sustainable building, there are many coffee points where we could enjoy any type of Italian coffee just like the employees thanks to their hospitality. We also visited Missoni Company in Smirago Italy, which was an incredible experience.  Other excursions included day trips to cities of Pisa and Lucca.
