The Master in Accessory Design was one of the most intense and formative experience of my life and gave me the opportunity to start my career in the right direction. As we say in Italy “ogni lasciata è persa”, which means “never miss an opportunity”. Now it is time for you to be brave and lay the base for your future. So, remember, do what makes you happy!

The experience at the Master in Accessory Design was great both from a human and a professional point of view. It was hard because we had tight schedules to develop complete projects but it was a great and very useful exercise if you want to work in the market. At the end of the workshops, even if you think it is impossible, you will complete the projects, and this is a great satisfaction! The best thing about the Master is that in very few months you can develop a very complete personal professional portfolio to present yourself to companies.
