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.
Polimoda has thus become a part of Lectra’s Education program that brings together over 850 institutions worldwide and demonstrates Lectra’s commitment to the future professionals of the fashion industry.
The school has incorporated Lectra’s pattern-making and marker-making solutions, Modaris and Diamino into its curriculum. Students will use them within the framework of the three-year Fashion Technology course that includes pattern-making.
"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.
“We are honored to count the internationally recognized fashion institute Polimoda among our Education partners. This agreement marks the beginning of a fruitful collaboration. For students, having access to our solutions is a true advantage when entering the job market, because they are used by the biggest Italian fashion brands”, said Fabio Canali, Managing Director, Lectra Italy.
"We are convinced that the innovative training methods of Polimoda’s Fashion Technology course, combined with Lectra’s technological solutions, will create value for future pattern makers, providing them with a solid base of knowledge and skills that are essential to succeeding in the complex and fascinating world of fashion,” concluded Linda Loppa, Polimoda’s Managing Director.
The Polimoda international institute of fashion design & marketing is an Italian centre of excellence, recognized worldwide for its high-quality, fashion-oriented, didactic offer ranging from design & marketing to management and communication, always in close relation to the business world.
Polimoda started in 1986 as a joint project co-financed by the cities of Florence and Prato, along with entrepreneurial associations and the collaboration of the State University of New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology.
