Indian design school, Italian school collaborate
Apr '17
India's JD International Design School has started collaboration with Accademia Internazionale D'Alta Moda E D'Arte Del Costume Koefia, one of Italy's oldest fashion schools, to expand art and design education in the country. The initiative will help in integration of global perspectives and best practices into art and design education in India.
The MoU was signed by Nealesh Dalal, managing trustee, JD Educational Trust and Antonio lo Presti, academic director of the Italian school.
Under the collaboration, the two institutions will encourage exchange of students and information, adoption of cutting-edge techniques and cultivating styles to match the changing dynamics of the global market. JDIDS will develop collaborative projects, including one-month international module as part of the one-year international diploma in haute couture and luxury management, with Koefia.
A faculty exchange programme has already been initiated by Koefia as part of the collaboration. Sergio Milioni, top fashion designer and director at Koefia, conducted a basic session on techniques of haute couture, during his week-long stay in Bangalore, a release from JD Educational Trust said.
Dalal said, "This experience will enrich our students and give them a glimpse of international design. During the tour, our students will have the opportunity to experience historical and contemporary architectures. Guided visits to museums and design exhibitions will expand their knowledge in the field of art and design."
"We have bridged the gap between international methodologies and trends in our industry by integrating and collaborating with Accademia Internazionale D'Alta Moda E D'Arte Del Costume Koefia for haute couture and luxury tailoring. The students, who are part of JD International Design School, are learning the haute couture patented Moulage technique at Koefia. The aim is to introduce more and more global institutions to India and disseminate global education to students," Dalal said.
The designers have completed an intensive course of haute couture at Koefia for three weeks. The designers ideated and created ensembles with Indian fabrics and moulage technique. (SV)
