A recent graduate from the School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures, Ilaria Gilardini, has enjoyed a first success as a fashion designer. This summer Ilaria, who graduated with a degree in French with Political Studies in 2013, won a competition held by the Italian fashion house Maison Academia
and her debut collection has gone into production as part of their Autumn-Winter 2013-14 collection and is available to buy through their website (an example of her work
). Maison Academia is an exclusive label promoting the work of emerging fashion designers from all over the world. Ilaria has just started an internship with Estée Lauder and we look forward to hearing more about her work in the future!
