Tessitura Attilio Imperiali has always focused its attention on young people who dream of working in the fashion industry. It is for this reason that the Imperiali Fashion Academy was founded, a new project which was started up in the academic year 2013/2014 and proposed as a supplement to university fashion design courses.
The initiative came from a strong desire on the part of the management to give young, ambitious people a real opportunity to get to know the business world better; it provides short training courses, company visits, material to realise creative projects, the chance to create a personal collection, as well as competitions and access to technical information, which is fundamental to fully understanding the value of the products created.
The provided services
1. Fabric supply
Tessitura Imperiali puts at disposal its fabric supply and its experience in fabric finishing to schools and/or to other institutions that are interested in involving their young students in the unique world of the Made in Italy. This is a way to put our training programme into effect from the very beginnig.
An internship programme will take place In Tessitura Imperiali. This is aimed at people with specific requirements and inclinations. The training project is very well-structured and also contemplates the support of some qualified partners, such as teachers, enterprises, laboratories.
Although the provided training is very practical, theoretical explanations in classroom won’t lack. However, we think that the secrets of the job can be learnt much better and sooner by doing.
4. Competitive exams / scholarships
The Project also includes competitive exams in order to even better qualify the training offer. This is combined with scholarships for the most deserving students.
5. Create your collection and take part into our exhibition
We also would like to encourage “new” fashion designers to create their own first collection and we put at their disposal all the necessary to do it, even the whole factory and the advice of our Design and Commercial Offices.
