Dezeen promotion: to celebrate its 15th anniversary in the UK, international fashion school Istituto Marangoni has announced eight new design courses at its London location, starting from October 2018.
The London Istituto Marangoni, which already offers a range of fashion and art degrees, will join its Milan counterpart in offering bachelors and masters courses in interior design, product design and visual design.
"Istituto Marangoni London is experiencing a pivotal moment this year, as we celebrate our 15th anniversary expanding our portfolio with this exciting challenge," said Charlotte Gorse, Istituto Marangoni London school director.
"Stepping into design is a natural progression for us, the fields of fashion and design work closer and closer together every day. Building on the best of both London and Milan design practices gives us a unique view of creative London," Gorse continued.
Located in Shoreditch's design triangle, the institution aims to offer students contemporary industry- and sector-specific facilities, including a material library and 3D production technology software.
The bachelors courses on offer are interiors, interior design, interior design and lighting, product design, product design and furniture, and visual design.
Meanwhile, the masters programme features contemporary interior design, fine jewellery design, and contemporary furniture design.
"I am proud to announce the launch of Istituto Marangoni London Fashion and Design School," said Roberto Riccio, Istituto Marangoni group CEO. "Our group is in constant growth, both locally and globally, and this new opening is a further milestone in our history of excellence."
"I am sure that our strong bond with the industry, our innovative teaching method and the expertise of our London design faculty teaching staff will breathe a new life into design education in the UK," he continued.
Applications for the design courses, due to begin in October 2018, are available here.
Istituto Marangoni was founded in 1935 and has locations in Milan, Florence, Paris, London, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Mumbai and Miami.
