Fashion Schools Sign MoU for Courses

The School of Fashion Technology (SOFT), Pune, and Accademia de Costume e di Moda (ACM), Rome, have signed a memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Pune recently to jointly run undergraduate and post graduate level courses for fashion buying, merchandising, brand design and high fashion design. ACM is ranked by Business of Fashion as the number 1 fashion school in Italy.

The courses to be offered under the partnership will be formulated with the help of SOFT and ACM faculty as well as well-known Indian fashion experts who will ensure and monitor the programmes that will help the students to face the Indian as well as foreign markets with unique global advantages.

“We also found that both institutions want to incorporate craft/culture and work towards its upliftment at international levels,” Manju Hundekar, principal, SOFT, said.

“We will have a collaboration for Indian students to experience something unique and important when they want to target the world or India,” Andrea Lupo Lanzara, managing director, ACM, said.

“ACM is a creative school for costume and fashion with traditions. So our collaborations with SOFT, Pune will be a two-way system of blending courses so that Indian design students can succeed in their own market as well as move globally and be a success in the world markets,” Adrien Roberts, director education, ACM, said.
