The Academy

About us

The birth of the textile industry back in the Sixties inspired our founder Domenico Lettieri to launch a tailoring and pattern making school in the South of Italy, which main goal was to train a new class of professionals who could mix the artisan knowledge and the industrial requirements.

Today IUAD – Accademia della Moda has received full recognition from the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research for bachelor’s degrees in Naples and Milan.

Our training method

We believe learning-by-doing is much more effective than just learning. Our courses are mainly based on laboratories and workshops, in order to work on actual issues and projects. Throughout their academic journey, students learn how to design, prototype and promote a design product.
