Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (CNMI), a non-profit organisation that promotes the development of Italian Fashion, has announced it has become a member of the Milano Fashion Institute.
The partnership of the two organisations was devised to provide new managers of the international fashion industry expert training.
CNMI has also joined the Polytechnic University of Milan and the Catholic University in the Scientific Committee of the Milanese institute.
Carlo Capasa, chairman of Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, said in a statement: “We are truly honoured to officially join Milano Fashion Institute, an international point of reference in the fashion education scenario.
“Having supported this project since its conception and then its foundation, we continue a path of collaboration that I believe will allow the industry to count on trained managers able to face the new challenges of this constantly evolving business.
"Education is one of the pillars of the strategic project that I designed for CNMI and, thanks to this new partnership with Milano Fashion Institute, I truly believe that we will take incredible new steps forward, affirming the leadership of Italian fashion in global markets.”
Nicola Guerini, director-general of Milano Fashion Institute, added: “The active participation of the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana will increase the opportunities for the students of Milano Fashion Institute from different points of view.
“Furthermore, thanks to a close collaboration with the players of the fashion and luxury sectors, this partnership will make it possible to anticipate the demands of the fashion companies, planning new academic programs together and responding to the need of emerging professions.”
