ECampus University and Academy of Luxury
“The return this year of the Fashion & Talents show-event is certainly not a return like the others – emphasizes Lorenza Lei, Vice-Rector of the eCampus University – Never before like this time to find ourselves here means many things. It means being able to carry out, despite the health emergency, a complex educational and creative project, safeguarding the study and work of our students and also of our teachers, overcoming obstacles never experienced that have put a strain on many aspects of teaching and training in such a particular sector. Returning once again to this extraordinary setting is the testimony of all this and of the fact that the eCampus University and the Accademia del Lusso have continued to work to keep the contact between young talents alive, in Italy and abroad. All this also thanks to the degree course in “Design and Fashion Disciplines” of our University which offers training that is always up-to-date and as international as possible.
“We are very happy to be here to celebrate the students of the Accademia del Lusso, in a moment of recovery also for the fashion and culture sectors, adds Laura Gramigna, Director of the Accademia del Lusso in Rome – Covid has changed our lives, but our watchword remains “never give up”. For this reason, always in full compliance with the safety rules, our School wanted to keep a consolidated appointment for our children, with this show that tells about the talent, dedication and resilience of our students. A moment of sharing that has crossed national borders for years. “
