The new campus in Guangzhou is the first overseas campus of the fashion school and currently houses 10 students. It has a capacity for 40 students as of now. Istituto Secoli partnered with Guangdong Association of Garment and Garment Article Industry, Guangdong Fashion Designers Association and Guangzhou Textile Exchange Park to set up the school.
