Istituto Secoli, a fashion school based in Milan, Italy, has opened a new branch in Guangzhou to help fill the need for pattern-making talents in China's fashion industry. Istituto Secoli specializes in training pattern makers as well as teaching design, sewing and production management.

The new branch, located in the Guangzhou Textile Exchange Park (GTEP), will implement the “2+1” education pattern, whereby students attend classes in Guangzhou for the first two years and then go to Italy for practical study in their third year.

In choosing Guangzhou, Istituto Secoli wanted to be at the center of China’s garment manufacturing industry. “There are many things in common between Guangzhou and Milan,” said Matteo Secoli, dean of Istituto Secoli. “Both of them breed a vibrant business climate for the development of the textile and garment industry. Istituto Secoli chooses to cooperate with GTEP because GTEP integrates all the resources of the garment industry and is capable of bringing a positive impact for the industry.”

Introducing the essence of Italian pattern-making techniques to China at the new school will help cultivate top professional talents in pattern-making and promote the transformation and upgrading of China’s garment enterprises, according to the director of the Guangdong Association of Garment and Garment Article Industry.

"China is not lacking fashion designers, but pattern-making talent," said Sam Lau, director and vice-dean of the school. “In China, pattern-making knowledge and experience have traditionally been passed down from generation to generation. In the past, pattern makers have had a relatively low level of education, making it inefficient for them to communicate with designers.”
