SOFT & ACM fashion schools sign MoU for courses

The School of Fashion Technology (SOFT), Pune, and Accademia de Costume e di Moda (ACM), Rome, have signed a memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to jointly run undergraduate and post graduate level courses for fashion buying, merchandising, brand design and high fashion design. ACM is ranked by Business of Fashion as the number 1 fashion school in Italy.

The MoU was recently signed between the two institutions in Pune. The courses to be offered under the partnership will be formulated with the help of SOFT and ACM faculty as well as well-known Indian fashion experts who will ensure and monitor the programmes that will help the students to face the Indian as well as foreign markets with unique global advantages.

"SOFT and ACM experienced similarities in terms of strong liaison with craft and culture, which reflects strongly in the students’ design interpretation. We also found that both institutions want to incorporate craft/culture and work towards its upliftment at international levels," said Dr Manju Hundekar, Principal, SOFT.

"ACM is part of the city of Rome and we would like to keep our school as a boutique one. We like our educational process to be assisted by international people from all over the world. With the faculty from SOFT and our international faculty, we will have a collaboration for Indian students to experience something unique and important when they want to target the world or India," said Andrea Lupo Lanzara, managing director, ACM.

"ACM is a creative school for costume and fashion with traditions so our collaborations with SOFT, Pune will be a two-way system of blending courses so that Indian design students can succeed in their own market as well as move globally and be a success in the world markets," adds Adrien Roberts, director education, ACM.

SOFT is India's leading fashion Institute established in 1998 by Maharishi Karve Stree Shikshan Samstha, with a mission to identify young women with professional, managerial, technical and entrepreneurial aspirations. ACM established in Rome, Italy in 1964 by Rosana Pistolese, a costume and fashion historian, journalist and designer, who inaugurated the Chair of Fashion Design at the California State University (Davis Campus) and was a visiting lecturer at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.
