“Accademia Costume & Moda was born from the vision of a woman, Rosana Pistolese, who has always looked at the contemporary through “Costume,” that is, the search for new expressions through “knowledge” whether it be of the past or sensibilities related to the present.

In Milan, we want to bring our approach to design, a method acquired over the years that allows us to offer our community an experience that is not only didactic, but of personal growth before even professional growth, an evolution that we witness every day, evolving us with it.

Thanks to the City of Milan, the Region to all the Institutions, and especially to the more than 160 companies that support us daily in giving experience and expertise to the next generation of employees.
