Open Day

Experience Polimoda in person

Polimoda’s Open Days are a unique chance for would-be Polimoda People to take the first steps towards shaping their professional future. Through a series of collective and one-on-one activities, potential students will explore where their career interests, talents and desired industry profiles merge with the school’s offerings.

As a means of unlocking the path to industry success, Open Day lays bare the daily workings that shape Polimoda’s student life and academic environment through face-to-face consultations. Participants are free to visit school grounds, meet the staff, faculty and current students and learn more about the necessary steps for enrollment. The day’s activities are organized as follows:


Our top faculty members will present a talk to address the beautiful complexity of the current fashion system.


Aspiring students and accompanying parents may attend course presentations by our Leading Teachers, who will provide in-depth information on our four areas of study. Lectures will be divided into courses pertaining to Undergraduate and Master in all the areas. Guests may attend either lecture in its Italian or English version.


Those who would like a one-to-one orientation can book an interview with one of our Leading Teachers to receive a personalized consultation regarding their course selection and potential career profile.
