Polimoda’s Director Danilo Venturi has announced the appointment of Massimiliano Giornetti as Head of Fashion Design Department starting the upcoming fall semester.
“Observing the crisis of large retailers, I think that fashion will soon need a new wave of creativity and well-made products. Polimoda has direct access to made-in-Italy know-how and revels in ethnic, cultural and gender diversity among students; these are ideal conditions for the birth of contemporary design. Meeting Massimiliano was serendipitous; he knows how contemporary fashion works, he is a former student, he reached the highest levels on the international scene and shares my vision,” said Venturi in a statement.
The company added that following a sixteen-year tenure at Salvatore Ferragamo and, like Venturi himself, a former student, Giornetti is a future-oriented choice for the Florentine institute, which has 2300 students currently enrolled from 68 different countries and ranks among the top 10 in the world as a result of a teaching formula that is always in tune with the industry’s needs.
