The prestigious fashion school will now deliver their proven and unparalleled education model to top students throughout the US and Latin America at their new Miami Campus.

“We were looking to create a new global fashion destination and selected Miami for its existing international allure and for its need for a firmly established fashion school. The city’s rapid growth in the design and art categories coupled with its accessibility to Latin America made it the perfect choice for us,” said Hakan Baykam, President of the new Miami campus.



To celebrate the opening of their 10th international campus, Istituto Marangoni will be offering 20 full scholarships and up to $1 million in scholarships to students who are passionate about the fashion business, design, photography or styling.

The academic curricula will follow teaching methods that Istituto Marangoni has been strengthening for more than 80 years. The school, which offers Associates, BA and Masters Programs, will be anchored by values that were ‘Made in Italy’ but will also blend with the city’s unique cultural elements, such as the local emphasis on sustainability and innovation. This includes integrating forward-thinking and sustainable practices into the course programming and looking at Miami’s commitment to resilience to shape the overall DNA of the campus.
