The Milan based fashion school that names famous names such as Domenico Dolce and Franco Moschino among their alumni has opened a new campus in Paris. In 2006 the fashion school opened a campus in the quite 16th district of Paris and has now relocated to 48 Rue de Miromesnil to be closer to “the center of fashion”, explained Roberto Riccio, general director of the Groupe Istituto Marangoni. Additional to the Paris campus the school is also located in London and Shanghai.
Measuring almost 13,000 square feet versus 8,600 before, the new campus is designed to accommodate a growing number of students, that mainly come from abroad, especially from the BRIC countries. Courses such as marketing and management of cosmetics and fragrances, that are specific to the Paris school, shall help to draw more students.
“Our objective is to have 1,000 students, at the Paris campus, just like in Milan, within five years, from 300 students currently,” Riccio added.
