Faculty

Our teachers are actively involved in the field of fashion and their teaching style is closely linked to the work they do on the sets. We are convinced that only professionals are able to transmit the richness of a wealth of experience and offer contemporary training to the new generation of fashion make-up artists.

In the advanced courses, the strictly practical activity is supported by all the professional figures who usually work in the field: photographers, stylists, videomakers, art directors, together with the professors of History of Fashion and Fashion Photography so that our students develop that culture. without which we believe it is impossible to face the profession of make-up artist at a higher level.
