Istituto Marangoni London

In 1935, Giulio Marangoni founded the Istituto Artistico dell’abbigliamento Marangoni, or The Marangoni Artistic Clothing Institute in Milan.  It was a school to train professionals and technicians who were highly specialized in the world of fashion.  During its existence, the Istituto Marangoni has never stopped believing in the value of training, constantly updating its programmes to make sure they are always in line with Italian and international market needs.  In the past few years, Istituto Marangoni has opened new campuses in London in 2003, Paris in 2006, and most recently, Shanghai in 2013.

The essence of fashion and design: this is what is taught at Istituto Marangoni. Professionals, who are passionate about their work and are willing to share their expertise, teach the young talent that, once graduated, will reach the highest professional levels. 

Through a complete course, where theory is taught alongside practice, students learn that creativity is a gift to be nurtured, nourished and stimulated continuously, with passion and dedication. It is the same passion for the world of fashion and design with which our teachers teach down to the finest detail.

It’s no surprise that London-based artists and visionaries are at the forefront of everything new on the planet - fashion, food, art, even technology. As a result it is almost impossible to keep pace with everything that goes on in the city. There’s so much to do, see, learn and sample - be it in a theatre or in a restaurant. From the edgy bars of the east end to the chic calm of Chelsea and west London, the city’s nightlife caters to everyones tastes regardless of age or background. 

Istituto Marangoni is in the coolest artistically and creatively area of London, Shoreditch. It is the correct place to look to the future, doing so through visual stimuli and culture. From here come the newest styles, new trends in fashion as in design.
