What is FLY | Fashion Loves You?

FLY | Fashion Loves You is the store for vintage and hand-crafted clothing and objects operated by FAST Fashion and Accessory Studies and Technology. FLY is located in a sleek, minimalist space at the FAST Palazzo della Giostra campus in Borgo Pinti along with the fashion department facilities. It is a link of creative expression and exchange between the city and the classroom, between our students and the local community. FLY is a non-profit store. All proceeds are collected in scholarship funds for Career Programs in Fashion or Accessory Design.

 

Student Academic Involvement


FLY is the heart of FAST and its academic activities and mission. FAST seeks to re-polish Florence’s past and present importance in Italian fashion as well as to bring back the hand-crafted “lost arts” – straw, leather, and knit products – of the city’s local fashion economy. This space allows for students to grasp issues of fashion marketing, targets, store management, sales strategies in addition to fashion design. Semester internships such as store retail and management are held at FLY in order to foster student involvement in a professional environment and interaction with the local community. This is a place where students’ fashion aspirations came true by offering to the public what they create.

 

Get Involved as a Volunteer!


All FUA students can get involved at FLY. Individuals with a passion for the world of fashion and accessories and wish to experience it professionally may sign up for volunteer positions. FLY, like its fellow CEMI, is a window to the local community in Florence. It is a space where volunteers can open up to the public the cultural mission of FUA through fashion, by sharing the styles of Florence beyond cultural stereotypes.

 

Experiential Learning at FLY

Individuals with a passion for the world of fashion and accessories and those who wish to experience it professionally may sign up for Experiential Learning through Learn and Serve courses. In addition to courses that are already academically involved at FLY, anyone who seeks a professionalizing experience can get involved as well. Through enrollment in Learn and Serve courses, team members may assist with the areas of FLY operations and management. Learn and Serve is fully taught, supervised and coordinated by instructors and offers the unique experience of professional integration and development for all individuals, whether they be students, alumni, or members of the local community. Courses may be enrolled on a credit or non-credit basis. FLY, like its fellow CEMI, is a window to the local community in Florence. It is a space where students can demonstrate FUA’s cultural mission to the public, by sharing the styles of Florence that extend beyond cultural stereotypes.
