New headquarters for the Fashion School

IED Torino recently inaugurated the new spaces for the Fashion School in a dedicated venue (Corso Matteotti, 11 – Turin).

The Academic Courses in Fashion Design and Jewelry and Accessories Design have been renewed with a focus on distinctive content and research areas.

The new cultural orientation today follows a path whose focus is research and innovation on materials and fabrics of the latest generation. The spaces, in addition to the new classrooms for front lectures, also include a tailoring workshop, fabric library and Cintiq classroom with 25 Dell Alienware and Wacom Cintiq 22HD workstations equipped with the latest generation software for Clo3D fashion design, useful in simulation and three-dimensional modeling.

The inaugurated spaces are IED Torino’s response to a growing need for the headquarters to have more and more avant-garde laboratories equipped to support collaborations with the most innovative companies in this sector.
