Luxury Brands Design Mini-Master

BAU International Academy of Rome
Campus Full time 4 - 10 weeks October 2017 Italy Rome

This mini-master program will give participants under the supervision of Anna Fendi and our team of dedicated experts of visual storytelling and viral marketing the opportunity to conduct an experimental application of all the latest key trends and discoveries in branding strategies to a wide range of luxury fields, from fashion to food and restaurant business design. [+]

There was a time that luxury was synonym of privilege, discreet, secret, rare and unique. Nowadays it is very difficult to define what is luxury and what is not; the business of luxury has corrupted the luxury story, many companies have made their brand extensions available to the mass at a cheaper price and luxury has become all about the label, not the substance. “Deluxe, how luxury lost its luster”, is an interesting book where the author explains how luxury now flashes instead of whispering. But slowly, people are turning away from the crass end of luxury and returning to its roots, to its being not easily accessible, unique piece rooted in outstanding quality and craftsmanship. This kind of customer is sophisticated, is an explorer, looks for experiences, for a connection with producers and their values, for that kind of rareness that doesn’t come with a label. If you want to start a business in the lifestyle industry and make the difference, this is the added value that you can learn from the Made in Italy brand, particularly from the experience of one of its most important Ambassadors active in Rome: Anna Fendi (read more about her >>>), the Italian fashion designer and entrepreneur who made with her sisters the Fendi brand famous across the globe, and after the LVMH acquisition has started a new business venture in the lifestyle, food and hospitality industry. "Living in Rome has been a privilege, but somebody might actually consider it a disadvantage: how... [-]
