In the world of fashion there is a valued and difficult to find professional figure. He’s the MILLINER, “the architect of the hat”.
The meaning of the word “Millinery” comes from French language and it means fashion lover. The major talent of a hat maker is creating new trends, realizing accessories that range from simple headgear to real artistic creations, which complete the look of the customer.

The role of the milliner remains little known. It ranks among design and product and it is strategic for clothing and accessories companies. The milliner represents a rare figure and therefore very much in demand by the industries.
Istituto di Moda Burgo offers the Hat Making course in order to train professionals able to work independently and to satisfy the needs of the fashion world that’s in constant and fast changing.
The teaching method of Institute is based on individual character classes and permits:
• to focus the aspects in which the student is weak or has difficulties;
• a rapid progress on the points where you have most knowledge;
• to create a good relationship with the teacher.
This is possible because the Millinery course includes the presence of a maximum of 8 students per teacher. The program is essentially practical and it consists in workshops that aim to teach an ancient craft, made of tradition and innovation. The course focuses on the study of patterns and on the realization of various types of hats and accessories (headbands, facial tissues and combs for brides) identifying the right materials and the correct measurements. Once the basic tools are acquired, the student will proceed studying decoration techniques, such as making fabric flowers, dyeing and embroidery applications on the framework. The study of materials and technical terminologies are also provided to the student.
Here the course program:
• Millinery course presentation, the history and various trends over the decades in fashion and costumes
