The Piattaforma Sistema Formativo Moda ETS association, founded in Milan on February 18th, 2008, brings together Italian institutes, academies and universities that provide training courses related to the fashion industry. The member schools have always had a close link with the Italian cultural, historical and industrial heritage and represent a fundamental segment in the development of innovation and the creation of new talent, with a training offer aligned to market needs.

The primary target is the affirmation of the identity of the Italian fashion education system and the promotion of excellence, encouraging an open and continuous exchange between schools and industry, also in relation to training systems of excellence at international level. Piattaforma Moda ETS also aims to facilitate access to education for the most talented students and encourage the reception of foreign students.
