11 students from LPU School of Fashion Design are visiting Milan, Italy for the internship and training program. They are pursuing this internship and training along with students from more than 12 countries including Italy, France, America, China, Korea, and Japan at one of the world’s leading fashion institutes, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti (NABA), Milan, Italy. They will be spending 3 weeks at NABA, and will also be visiting Rome, and the fashion capital, Paris.
The students started their journey with a visit to the NABA campus where they were oriented with Italian styling and prepared for the summer course. Following which, the students visited the Duomo di Milano, the second-largest cathedral in the world. Apart from witnessing the exceptional Gothic church, they explored 40 years of Giorgio Armani’s career at the Armani/Silos exhibit. Mondo di Leonardo was yet another addition to the fashion designers’ dream. The museum explored Leonardo da Vinci’s artwork through machine interpretation, musical instruments, and graphic design and 3D software. Furthermore, fabric sourcing in Rome, visit to the Eiffel Tower, Louvere museum, and the Grand Palais are scheduled.
Filled with enthusiasm, students are not only getting classroom learning experience with several international students to top with unique teaching style but are also getting to live every fashion designer’s dream. They are exploring and learning from art and culture and would now be better able to communicate designs with a holistic approach, making the Milan trip a very successful initiative.
