Master in Fashion Design in partnership with Fondazione Giafranco Ferré – September 2018


Gianfranco Ferré was born in Legnano, near Milan in 1944. He graduated in Architecture and started designing accessories and jewelry. In 1978 Ferré presented his debut signature women’s ready-to-wear collection with a show in Milan. In 1983, Ferré created the Master’s course in Fashion Design at Domus Academy and led it until 1989, when he became Artistic Director of Christian Dior, up to 1996, for the women’s Haute Couture and Prêt à Porter lines.

Gianfranco Ferré died in Milan in 2007 and the following year the Fondazione Gianfranco Ferrè was founded with the aim of preserving, organizing and making available to the public the designer’s patrimony that includes about 3,000 pieces of clothing and accessories and documents his professional activity.

The Fondazione is still committed to its mission of promoting, pursuing and carrying out projects that relate to the Gianfranco Ferré philosophy and culture of design, to the maestro’s unique idea of fashion and exquisite aesthetic sensitivity.

On the 10th anniversary from his passing, Fondazione Gianfranco Ferré is sponsoring one exceptionally talented student to pursue the Master in Fashion Design at Domus Academy, commencing in September 2018, to further investigate the dynamics of the fashion creative process.


Interested applicants are asked to explore the work of Gianfranco Ferré, conduct their own intellectual and visual research, and develop an original fashion collection. The final outcome will be a capsule collection of 5 complete outfits, reflecting the personal world of inspiration of the candidate, a clear and rich design methodology.

Academy invites each candidate to explore, identify and illustrate their individual perspective on fashion through the following elements: volumes, materials, colors.


One scholarship covering 10.000€ of the tuition fee of the Master in Fashion Design. The competition is reserved to EU students.


Projects will be evaluated and selected by the Faculty of the Master in Business Design, Domus Academy, a representative of Fondazione Gianfranco Ferré and the Domus Academy Admissions Jury.
