The Italian "Moulage" Method
Over the years, Koefia Academy has developed a method based on the construction of the paper pattern on mannequin, known as the French moulage method. Since 1951, KOEFIA Academy prepares students through a three-year course strongly oriented to the practical aspect of the profession.
MADAME ALTA TONI BRASINI “KOEFIA” DEVELOPED THIS METHODOLOGY FROM 1930 !
The study path is complete: the design of the project to the creation of the paper pattern, from the prototype in sartorial canvas to the realization of the dress in fabric with the criteria and sartorial techniques of High Fashion. A KOEFIA student is able to intervene at any stage of the creative process, starting a complete dress from a sketch on a paper sheet.
The Academy pays particular attention to the additional components that make a dress a luxury object: embroidery, knitwear, macramé, felt, hat and accessory.
At the end of the studies, a student of KOEFIA presents a dress during the last semester, within the ALTAROMA ALTAMODA fashion show, and participates in many other initiatives in Italy and abroad.
