Looking good and being impeccable demands creativity. To know what suits us and what makes us look out of place, to adapt our personal appearance to the dress codes of our work place is no small feat, it requires knowledge that allows us to achieve a style in harmony with the corporate image.
This is the reason we created the "Lifestyle" seminar, which aims to train fashion conscious men and women in developing their own style and in learning how to adapt it to their work place in a holistic manner.
The concept is to offer male and female employees an improvement plan for their appearance, based on our Lifestyle Guide, facilitated by a group of professionals who offer their knowledge in style through activities that raise self esteem, to teach them how to build up a personal style in accordance to the corporate image in order to lead more successful professional, social and personal lives.
Given the positive acceptance of our course and in order to bring fashion closer to contemporary men and women, we have become present in social media. In Facebook, you may join our group Moschiano Couture and follow us in Twitter @moschianomoda.
