iconCollege Visit: Istituto Marangoni


Yesterday, AAIA had the pleasure of hosting renowned fashion creative consultant Mr. Emanuele Colombo who gave an inspirational historical view of the ever-evolving world of the fashion business to twenty of our high school students interested in fashion, art, and/or design. Mr. Colombo, a graduate of Istituto Marangoni, currently serves as their Shanghai campus Education Director.
It’s easy for us as educators, parents, and students to get caught up in the ‘game’ of college applications and spend precious time worrying about GPA, and test scores. Therefore, it was refreshing to hear Mr. Colombo echo AAIA’s stance on college preparedness in that the most important thing for students to do is to “find your true self” and to be authentic in everything you do while displaying passion and working diligently.
AAIA enjoys a strong relationship with Istituto Marangoni and looks forward to future visits and ventures.


昨天很榮幸能邀請到Mr. Emanuele Colombo來校參訪並與對時尚藝術有興趣的高中生們分享服裝設計的起源及演變。Mr. Colombo畢業於Istituto Marangoni時尚設計學院且目前擔任其上海校區的教育主任。 
縱使在這個高分導向的升學環境中,Mr. Colombo傳遞了與AAIA相同的教育理念-學生必須勇於探索自我,忠於自我,並在學習與工作領域中展現熱忱。
AAIA十分期待未來能與Istituto Marangoni時尚設計學院有更多交流的機會。
