Masters in Fashion. Master in Fashion Direction : Brand & Communication Management Brands have cultural identities and roots, which often come out from the products and the company’s technical expertise and craftsmanship, while in other cases it is the result of a careful brand strategy and communication architecture. The management and exploitation of this area are increasingly important for global competitiveness In this area, professionals are required to possess skills in order to create value for the final customer and the different other targets of communication and marketing strategies, as well as being able to interact with all the segments of the pipeline from design and product management to marketing and retailing. As a matter of fact, companies are conceiving these roles as based on multidisciplinary competences and on the ability of interacting with various “cultural languages”, understanding the sophisticated different feelings, moods and approaches that different market’ segments and targets possess,with traditional and digital tools and channels, Thus, the capability to translate this cultural D.N.A. and heritage into policy and managerial guidelines for the different processes involving brand positioning, advertising and marketing, communication and promotion is the next challenge that companies are facing.

Resilience is a strong trait of the "persona" of Rome. The eternity of Rome relies on the continuous re-use and re-adaptation of the past to accommodate ephemeral needs. It has always been challenging for Rome to deal with the immense and sometimes intrusive patrimony inherited from the Roman age, to the point to get stuck in a conservative position of immobilism.

Resilience is a strong trait of the "persona" of Rome. The eternity of Rome relies on the continuous re-use and re-adaptation of the past to accommodate ephemeral needs. It has always been challenging for Rome to deal with the immense and sometimes intrusive patrimony inherited from the Roman age, to the point to get stuck in a conservative position of immobilism. But on the other hand, Rome is the Eternal City and has the attributes of being permanent and durable over the centuries. These traits come from the ability of the Romans to re-use, reconvert and accommodate the old materials, artifacts and buildings of the ancient city, built in-fact to stay forever, for the new needs required by the times. Function changes but the essence of Rome has been preserved by recycling and re-using rare materials and scarce resources. From the Cosmati craftsmen - renowned during the 12th and 13th century for their ability to combine glass mosaic with the re-used precious marble of Roman columns, statues and buildings of the pagan age - up to Ilaria Venturini Fendi you can see a fil rouge holding together past, present and future of the Roman craftsmanship and converging into features of durability, uniqueness, innovation, creativity and continuous research, that are all attributes marking what is considered luxury and what is meant to be sustainable. "In Euclidean space two parallel lines on the same plane cannot intersect, or cannot meet each other forever. But “Rome is forever”: here luxury and sustainability converge... [-]

The Master course in Fashion deals with the three fundamental mechanisms for the management of a fashion luxury brand: creativity, contemporaneity and storytelling. The meaning of the word creativity and its dynamics are still unknown for many. The study and analysis of creative processes necessarily occur within the contemporaneity, insofar as it is not only the time in which dynamics of the market take place, but also its engine. Knowing the mechanisms that act in the present help us to recognize and direct people’s tastes and consumption, both as a profit opportunity and social growth. The storytelling is the final result of the process that brands set in motion for building the trademark’s sense and aesthetics in order to make it solid and lasting, and it’s also functional to the product’s sale. Career opportunities - The Master aims to train the interim management executives who have a solid cultural preparation and practice but are also able to understand and react to new creative dynamics: Brand Manager, Marketing Director, Communications Director, Merchandising Manager, Retail Manager, Digital Media Manager. Degree title - The course is recognised by MIUR (Ministry for Education, University and Research) as an Academic Master Level I credit rated at 60 credits allowing students to progress further in their studies in Italy or abroad. Target - The Master must include a Honours Degree in marketing, communication, fashion or related fields, or a proven and relevant professional experience in the sector. Methodology and structure - The Master is divided into... [-]
