Why choose this course at Laboratorio Firenze?

Attending a fashion course in Florence is a unique opportunity that few can experience. The concept of fashion as we understand it today emerged in Florence, and more specifically in the Renaissance, with the introduction of new genres and a high degree of professionalism in sewing. Renaissance Italy saw the appearance of the richest and most spectacular costumes in history, with vivid colours and imaginative and original shapes, giving great importance to sleeves, pleats and vertical folds of the fabric, with fine embroidery and rich trimmings.

In these workshops we will work the moulage technique. Moulage is a three-dimensional design and production technique that allows great freedom in terms of design. From time immemorial, moulage has been a widely used technique in the field of haute couture.

As well as being the cradle of the Renaissance, Florence has a long tradition and a worldwide reputation in the world of fashion and art, perfectly intertwining tradition, contemporaneity and modernity.

In Florence you can visit the most interesting museums of Renaissance costumes and art. You will be able to participate in seminars that have been following this wonderful tradition for years and you will learn the techniques to be among the top professionals.

As long as there are places and you have been admitted, you can start at any time. Our lessons are for small groups and you will be followed by our tutor, in accordance with your level at the start of the course.

In these courses, we do not admit more than 7 participants per tutor in each class.

Laboratory Description

Fashion design experimentation through geometric architecture.

Design your exclusive collection.

  • Minimum one month, introduction to geometric fashion
  • Realization of a geometric collection – 3 months.
  • Project and realization of collection and final presentation – 6 months.

Geometric forms are an indispensable element of artistic creation, with a long journey still to be explored in fashion design.

You will learn to design and create your exclusive fashion and textile art collections.

In this laboratory, the classes are practical. You will experiment on the stand. We will learn about the great secrets of geometric design through creative geniuses, artists of the fashion world, Vionnet in the 20’s and her bias cut, Issey Miyake and his infinite folds, Yohji Yamamoto, Pier Cardin, Raf Simmons, or the application of the golden proportion of Maura Ireri. We will study the geometric forms applied in architecture.

We will analyse the techniques used in their works and their possibilities of development in this context, in order to break the traditional concepts of pattern making and to dismantle them. We will learn through these by practical repetition.

The use of geometric form as a basic structure to create a three-dimensional silhouette results in the clothes producing visual effects with the movement of the body.

In this laboratory, we will analyse the relationship between the characteristics of geometric shapes and clothing patterns, we will work on fabrics and materials giving them a three-dimensional shape on the stand.

We will try to use the language of artistic fashion to communicate everything we want to convey. What the philosopher Arthur Koestler called “The Visual Language”.

The design process and analysis of the creative results provide the participants with different design ideas for their study and further development.

You will acquire the necessary knowledge to develop your collection, learn about different types of fabrics, their weight and their adaptability to the body by working with them on the stand. The dyeing of materials with your colour palette and textile printing using the Shibori technique.

You will carry out toiles on the stand, experimenting through cutting and sewing to adapt the fabric to the human body.

In this laboratory, you will gain control of forms, fabrics, and colours. You will become a designer capable of developing any idea you propose.
