“Alta Moda” - embroidery school
Scuola di ricamo Alta Moda is the first school in Italy and in 2009 proposed a new project aimed at young designers, a unique course haute couture embroidery in Italy. This is not the classic embroidery handed down by Italian generations, but it’s high quality embroidery using innovative techniques for the creation of clothing, wedding dresses and fashion accessories. The practical training involves the creation of haute couture embroidery, by developing techniques and knowledge of the design of general embroidery: the search for the source of inspiration, drawing embroidery, history of certain types of embroidery, from the technical drawing to the practical realization on professional long 2,20mt rectangular frames.
Students come from all over the world and that's why there are different frequency formulas: the individual course, the intensive course or the one organized in one weekend, both in the Rome office and in Milan. By collaborating with various Italian ateliers, the School offers guided tours in the workshops, factories and workshops and proposes different duration internships. Besides numerous embroidery courses here are also several courses and fashion and craft workshops: millinery, leather, moulage, textile design, with Italian and foreign teachers.
The courses are practical and suitable for both professionals and people with no experience and there’s no shortage of marketing lessons, work organization, addresses of suppliers and trade shows, useful for those who want to open their own business. The school also provides unlimited post-course support and subscription to its working network.
