Many three-year undergraduate courses will be offered by Istituto marangoni
A boutique fashion school has opened in Dubai. It aims to combine innovative learning with Italian expertise to help local talent and shape the future direction of the UAE’s fashion and design industry.
On Tuesday, Istituto marangoni, one the most respected fashion and design schools worldwide, opened its campus at Dubai International Financial District.
The institute will offer three-year undergraduate programs in interior design, product design and visual design. It also offers fashion business, fashion styling, and creative direction. It will also offer short courses and professional courses that cover various aspects of the fashion design industry. Classes for the new student intake will start in September 19.
“We are looking forward to welcoming our students and to help them transform their talents and passions into a professional career,” says Roberto La Iacona, School Director – Istituto Marangoni Dubai.
He continues, “Since 1935 Istituto Marangoni’s mission has always been to empower talents. Some of the internationally-recognised and award-winning fashion and design stars, including Domenico Dolce, Franco Moschino, Alessandro Sartori, Rahul Mishra and Rafael Lopez graduated from Istituto Marangoni and we now want to support the growth and development of the UAE fashion, design and creative industry by educating a new generation of local talents.”
It is located at Gate 8 of the DIFC and offers students a modern and stylish environment with all the industry- or sector-specific facilities. This includes a drawing and sketching area, pattern and cutting rooms, fabric library, fashion book library, and an outdoor terrace.

Giulio Cappellini, an Italian architect, directed the construction of the 1,050 metre campus. He also designed the furniture pieces used in the school, including the tables and chairs.
There are also campuses of Istituto Marangoni in Paris, London and Mumbai, as well as Miami, Miami, and Florence.
Stefania Vaenti, Managing Director of Istituto Marangoni, spoke to Khaleej Times previously. “As per our research, we felt that the Middle East was an ideal destination to create such an institution here because there are a lot of luxury brands here. There is an appetite for a culture that is very focused on luxury whether it is jewellery, accessories, or any other fashion collection.”
She continues, “Two years ago, before Covid, we analysed the market here, and we got some insights that seemed very encouraging. It was evident that there was a lack of higher education in a vertical institution focused on fashion as a core business, multimedia arts and visual arts. There are institutions that are positioning themselves more toward interior and visual design. So, we understood the potential for us to be here, to bring a boutique school with a classroom that has a maximum of 20 students.”
She also stressed that the school would use a unique methodological approach. “learning by doing”.
Valenti added, “We will teach students not only theoretically, but there’ll be a lot of laboratory work where the students would create prototypes and collections as part of their course curriculum. The finalisation of specific collection and fashion styling would entail a lot of shooting and creation of projects related to its promotion utilising different tools. They will also be taught about new content production activity related to online syndication.”
