Founded in 1986 in Florence, the school is one of the most acclaimed in Italy. It caters for 1200 students across 3 locations. Fifty percent of the students are international, and travel from all over the world to benefit from Polimoda’s high-quality teaching methods.

"Our partnership with Lectra will allow us to meet the growing demands of the fashion industry, particularly in terms of new technology. Indeed, a growing number of companies are looking for young talents who have been trained on product development solutions developed by Lectra, which is the industry reference", declared Patrick De Muynck, Head of Polimoda’s Design Department.
