This month has been a huge one for #PolimodaPeople, with the Institute cementing its place in the BoF Rankings as the #1 fashion school in Italy, two alumni in the five designers showing at VFILES Runway last week in New York, appearances in the September issue of Vogue Italia, and a finalist in the Mittelmoda design competition. We’re not even half way through the month, and now we’re celebrating another success.
After recently winning Miss Toscana, Rachele Risaliti has gone onto to win the incredible title of Miss Italia for 2016, all while continuing her studies at Polimoda.
Rachele is a current student in Fashion Product Management, a highly specialised undergraduate degree that trains students to understand, follow, and manage the entire lifecycle of a product. From the initial idea and research stage, to production and logistics, distribution and merchandising, this course is not for the faint-hearted. It’s for this reason that we’re proud to see such an intelligent young woman being celebrated by the Miss Italia competition. Whilst Rachele is certainly beautiful, her brain is even more so.
