  • POLIMODA FACILITIES

    Villa Strozzi, the Stables, the Design Lab and the Acciaiolo Castle.

    Several prestigious, historical facilities a few minutes away from Florence and Scandicci, surrounded by beautiful parks: technical labs for pattern-making, stylistics, knitwear and footwear prototyping, equipped with the most renowned industrial instruments.


    The Design Lab, located near by Villa Strozzi, hosts many classrooms where patternmaking, fashion design and sewing classes are held and it is truly the creative facility of Polimoda, always bustling with activity and full of fabrics, colors, mannequins and professional machinery: a real design lab!
    All the labs are equipped with industrial machinery used to realize didactic projects within an environment that faithfully reflects the reality of fashion companies. The equipment is comprised of more than 200 pieces of highly specialized machinery: sewing machines, professional instruments used to refine prototypes, ironing boards, flat knitting machines and looper machines: all these instruments make Polimoda Design Lab the Italian biggest didactic lab for manufacturing.
    Students also have at their complete disposal all the materials and professional tools they need: muslin, paper pattern, french curves and compasses for pattern-making, buttonholes and zippers of all kinds, professional scissors, trimmings and buttons in different  shapes and materials. The Design lab also hosts a well furnished Shop where students can purchase all they need for lab activities such as basic sewing items or more technical products usually hard to find, provided by the best distributors in the field.
    Moreover, the new Manufacturing Office is the place where students can rely on the professional experience of qualified experts in order to refine prototypes and their final collections. 
    This facility is open 12 hours a day, and in between classes students can use all the equipments to realize their projects or relax a bit in the chill out, wi-fi area. The Design Lab staff is specifically trained for maintenance and is always willing to assist students with the kindness and experience Polimoda is renowned for.


    In September 2008 Polimoda opened up a new, prestigious facility hosting the Footwear and Accessories Department. The Acciaiolo Castle in Scandicci represents a pole of excellence tucked in the heart of an area renowned for prestigious leather goods companies that created the credentials of  the Made in Italy.  The castle, dating back 1400, is located a few steps away from the city centre and is surrounded by a beautiful monumental garden enclosed by majestic walls with two towers on top. The indoor area of the castle is about 300 squared metres divided into 4 labs and 4 classrooms that can host more than 80 students of all the footwear and accessories courses. A real atelier for prototyping, following the footsteps of the best tradition of hand-made footwear production, a continuous experimental research on shapes, functions and use of shoes: students have at their complete disposal: moulds, leathers, fabrics and innovative synthetic materials of all kinds, a wide range of heels, soles and accessories  to realize prototypes, along with the main pieces of professional machinery allowing them to work directly with the resources provided by the companies in the area. This facility is also equipped with non conventional instruments for creating experimental prototypes, working on wood, pvc, resin and straw, aimed at enhancing the students creativity through innovative projects.
