About Domus Academy
Domus Academy was founded in Milan in 1982 as the first postgraduate design school in Italy, and as an open project focusing on the Italian Design and Fashion experience.

The Academy offers 10 masters courses, attended by students from all over the world: Masters in Accessories Design, Masters in Business Design, Masters in Car Design, Masters in Design, Masters in Fashion Design, Masters in Interaction Design, Masters in Interior and Living Design, Masters in Urban Vision and Architectural Design, Masters in Fashion Management, Masters in Fashion Styling and Visual Merchandising, Masters in Service and Experience Design.

In 2009, Domus Academy was nominated for the third time by Business Week magazine as one of the best schools of design in the world.

Students from Domus Academy have been selected in international contests like ITS, Next Generation/ Milan Fashion Week, Vogue Talents, Who's on Next and Red Dot Award. Domus Academy projects have been exhibited in Venice Architectural Biennial 2004 and 2010 and at Centre Pompidou, Paris.
