Working in a managerial position within a luxury fashion brand requires professionals who are able to combine creative ability and business acumen.
Experts in Fashion Communication are important channels between fashion organisations and their consumers, and their role is to convey the creativity and identity of brands through a diverse array of media including written, audio and visual.
Accademia del Lusso’s one-year Master’s in Fashion Communication Management is a full-time intensive course which enables students to follow every stage of a communication plan for a fashion or luxury product (including aspects such as the briefing, the marketing strategy, photoshoots, press release and event organisation) and to manage the team of professionals who form part of the communications area of a fashion or luxury business.
Taught by experts from the industry, the course gives students the opportunity to enhance their creative skills whilst developing business awareness, critical thinking, and leadership abilities.
The course curriculum is forward-looking and varied and combines classroom lectures with seminars, practical workshops including meetings with brands, businesses, and industry experts, as well as field trips to trade fairs, fashion events, businesses and other key sector locations and businesses.
What you’ll learn
The wide-ranging curriculum of our Master’s Course in Fashion Communication Management will give you an essential awareness of the complexity and interrelated nature of the fashion industry.
The course includes the study of fashion image, journalism, marketing, management, communication and culture, creating a multidisciplinary study path that shapes students into fashion communication specialists who also possess extensive transferable skills.
Through the introductory modules you will solidify your understanding of the fashion and luxury system and in particular the history and characteristics that define Made in Italy. You’ll also learn about fashion and international markets and examine how trend forecasting is done. Through these modules you will broaden your knowledge of the industry and develop your critical thinking and awareness.
You will move on to specialised areas such as the techniques of fashion journalism, publishing and editing and the different professional roles within an editorial office. You’ll learn about freedom of press and the relationship between publishing and advertising. Both print and digital media will be examined.
You will study public relations, the press office, and communication strategies in the fashion and luxury sector.
You will learn about fashion event management including how to organise a launch event for a fashion or luxury product. You’ll analyse event budgets and be able to draft a quote, choose guests, and manage the mailing list.
You’ll analyse all stages of fashion image production for publishing, advertising and lookbooks, including examining the roles which contribute to the process; particularly paying attention to the fashion stylist’s tasks and to the organisation and management of photoshoots.
You’ll perform role-plays and presentations, take photoshoots, and complete group projects as well as individual research work. You’ll take part in debates and discussions with established professionals and visiting experts, and you’ll go on numerous field trips to specific fashion and business locations.
The course also aims to give you the confidence and insight to be able to launch a business of your own through targeted lectures and workshops on personal branding.
