Annual / Professional

The Couture Pattern Making course – High Fashion Pattern Making – is the core of the Academy’s teaching. Madame Koefia – Alba Toni Contessa Brasini – the founder of the school, is a modeling professional who opened the Academy in Rome in 1951 on the basis of the international success of her creations.

The 3D pattern “Moulage”, of his invention, consists in cutting the model not on the table but directly on the mannequin. Koefia Modeling Methodology® is taught on the basis of an exclusive idea that is still characteristic of Italian Haute Couture.

In the Koefia High Fashion Modeling course, 3 main methods and tools are taught for the creation of prototypes and models of garments and dresses:

  1. Haute Couture Modeling, Koefia method, 3D Moulage Draping
  2. Industrial modeling, Secoli method
  3. Cad-Cam modeling, Lectra method software Modaris.

Professional goals

The modeling skills currently represent, in the field of fashion production, what makes the difference for job placement. Many know industrial modeling in Cad-Cam applications, but few know how to professionally make tailor-made suits starting from the construction of the three-dimensional “moulage” pattern on the mannequin.

Thanks to the High Fashion Modeling Academy, Koefia introduces young qualified model makers to work every year in prestigious Maison SEE LIST.
