The founder of Milan Fashion Campus is Angelo Russica, who was born and raised in Switzerland with sicilian origins.
After his fashion studies in Milan, Angelo Russica made his first steps into the fashion world assisting Giorgio Correggiari, where he met Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana (Dolce & Gabbana). He had to leave for military service for one year. Once he came back he worked with the Italian company Barbas (Menswear Collection), after this he had one of his most exciting professional experience: He began working as an assistant designer for Gianni Versace. He worked for 5 years participating in Women's Wear and Menswear collections: Genny, Spazio and Versus.
After this experience, he left Italy for 4 years for Spain: Here he worked with Induyco – El Corte Inglés in Madrid. Once he returned, he started working as a consultant for Gruppo Marzotto, Miroglio Vestebene, Gruppo Max Mara, also in Japan with one of the most important apparel Maker World Company, King Company.
During his years working in the fashion industry, Angelo was frequently disappointed by young people who attended renowned fashion schools: Despite three years of study and having spent lots of money, students regretfully realized that they have not acquired a solid knowledge. Very often the graduates do not even have the possibility to do internship.
Angelo realized that so much more could be done. Consequently, he founded Milan Fashion Campus with the purpose of giving young people the chance to learn about the world of fashion design without spending a fortune for it. It aims to provide industrial know-how in a practical and realistic manner as how things are done in a professional environment.
Since 2003, Milan Fashion Campus began spreading the Italian fashion culture through the Internet.
