Our Approach


The collaboration between a dynamic and constantly updated faculty and the most prestigious fashion houses allows a better communication with the younger generation eager to share technical knowledge and the direct experience of their professors. The individual teaching method and the limited number of students for each teacher provide a personalized training course. The teachers from the several international Istituto di Moda Burgo branches regularly go to Milan, to the head office in Piazza San Babila in Milan, to follow updating educational courses about the latest fashion trends to ensure an excellent training offer.
