In conversation with ‘The Sartorialist’ at Istituto Marangoni, Mumbai
Prestigious fashion and design school, Istituto Marangoni’s Mumbai school played host to eminent fashion blogger and photographer Scott Schuman, popularly known as ‘The Sartorialist’, who is currently in India to shoot his upcoming book that will exclusively focus on the essence of Indian style.
Credited with presenting and building a two-way dialogue about the world of fashion and its relationship to daily life, ‘The Sartorialist’ was in conversation with Diana Marian Murek – Director of Education, Istituto Marangoni Mumbai about his perspective from behind the lens and beyond it.
The evening saw guests including Istituto Marangoni alumnus, Rahul Mishra, Troy Costa, Vikram Raizada, Allia Al-Rufai, Marlies Bloemendaal, and others attending the event. Schuman also interacted with the students of Istituto Marangoni Mumbai and shared anecdotes of his journey in fashion photography.
Speaking on the occasion, Diana shared, “In keeping with Istituto Marangoni’s 83-year old legacy, the Mumbai School is dedicated to education seen through the lens of engagement. Armed with an innate Italian-ness, Istituto Marangoni encourages students to learn rather than study. As a result, industry exposure and practical experience play a pivotal role in our courses, many of which are taught by teachers from our European schools. ‘In Conversation with The Sartorialist’ is an example of this tenet and we are delighted to have Scott with us and listen to his fabulous experiences from across the globe.”
Situated in Worli, the location of Istituto Marangoni Mumbai sits at the cusp of the city’s commercial and cultural hubs. With its cosmopolitan culture, vibrant cinema and burgeoning fashion industry, Mumbai was a natural choice to set up Istituto Marangoni’s first campus in India. Perched on the 14th floor of the landmark Ceejay House, the school offers students a quiet and creative space overlooking uninterrupted vistas of the Arabian Sea. The campus offers full-time courses in Fashion Design, Fashion Business, Visual Design as well as a short-term course in Fashion Styling. In addition to the course curriculum, the school encourages students to partake in dialogue and develop opinion by regularly hosting robust discussions with industry insiders and thought-leaders from across the world of fashion and design. In a move to facilitate international exposure, the 3-year long programmes offer students the option to spend their final year at Istituto Marangoni Milan.
