Politecnico di Milano signs partnership with Chanel

Our University’s expertise to tackle multiple challenges in the fashion world

The Politecnico di Milano has signed a partnership with the fashion house CHANEL  

The prestigious French fashion house’s objective is to leverage our University’s expertise in order to develop new models that take account of the rapid and profound changes to manufacturing activities in the luxury sector, and to support and accelerate innovation, research and the development of more sustainable materials and production processes in the core sectors of its business.  

This applied research project, conducted in close collaboration with our own researchers, will help to enrich the University’s academic corpus. At the same time, CHANEL will commence recruitment initiatives, talent assessment and continuous training for its own collaborators. 

This announcement was made in the wake of the CHANEL 2021/22 Métiers d'art show, which will take place on Tuesday June 7th 2022 in Florence. First unveiled in Paris in December 2021, the collection will be presented once again to an audience of journalists, clients and celebrities close to the House, as well as approximately 220 students from Politecnico and other Italian schools specialising in fashion and design. 

CHANEL says that it is proud to be linked to the Politecnico di Milano, in line with other partnerships initiated by the fashion house, focussing on know-how and sustainability.
