The world of fashion opens its doors, last call with ACOF Milan courses

It will be an event animated by two distinct moments: Friday, May 13, 2022: the first with the illustration of training in the design and development of collectionsthe second oriented fashion communication world.

The fashion world continues to seek young people who have the ability, the talent and the passion to experience the world of fashion as protagonists, equipping themselves with the appropriate tools to create it and tell it in an always innovative way.

ACOF Olga Fiorini – which also in Milan is now a recognized and credible name in the field of sectoral training – is therefore preparing to open the doors of its prestigious headquarters by Copernicus 3precisely to offer those interested the opportunity to seize the opportunity to get acquainted with a dynamic, stimulating and very fascinating sector.

The planned open day will allow those interested to get to know the staff who run four different courses, to hear the testimonies of other young people who have completed internships in the company in recent months, as well as to see laboratories and tools used for lessons, inside a decidedly high-level office.


The “open house” moment planned via Copernico will be divided into two parts.

From 3 p.m. – and until 4:30 p.m. – the focus will be on two courses in the field of fashionfocused towards design and development of collectible clothing then the Biennial ITS “Fashion Design Collection” and of “Haute Couture collection”.

Following, from 4:30 p.m. to 6 will rather be the turn to welcome young people who want to devote themselves to communications and marketingcan also in this case be between “Digital Communication & Fashion Styling” course on how to take care of a brand’s image is the one from “Communication on social networks and digital PR”called upon to embrace all multi-channel management, between social networks and influencers, now essential for telling style and trends.

“Strength of our proposal – he explains Simona Pettinidirector of ACOF Milan – is the great collaboration established with all partners, whether they are organizations and associations, or whether they are companies participating in the challenge, welcoming students on internships. About 40% of the two thousand hours of preparation planned over the two-year period are spent at the operational headquarters of our partners, sometimes even abroad. Likewise, the teachers come largely from corporate backgrounds, in order to offer training that corresponds to what is really demanded by the labor market”.

The main realities involved are Dolce and Gabbana, Missoni, Candiani Denim and Herno. The Lombardy courses of the ITS Cosmo Foundation, in addition to the ACOF, see the participation of about forty members, including LIUC University of Castellanza And various high schools in the region. Important partners are Centro Tessile Cotoniero, Unic, Afol Moda, Antia, Univa with Industrial Services & Promotions Varese, Unindustria Como, the municipalities of Busto Arsizio and Castellanza, Como Silk Factory Foundation and the employment agencies Synergie and Umana.

“Thanks to this now refined and tight-knit network – explains Simona Pettini – we have achieved great comeback even in recent months, so much so that the MIUR has promoted our formations in its annual ranking. The results are extremely satisfactory, we can say that we have not been absolutely scratched by all the difficulties caused first by the pandemic and then by the situation of international uncertainty. In practice, by continuing to work with passion and skill, we were able to express much of the students’ potential. Now we want to try to improve even more”.

A reality of excellence whose universe Olga Fiorini has been a reference for the Lombard district since 2014.
