Accademia Italiana Bangkok

Accademia Italiana Bangkok

Did we really include a fashion institute in this city guide? Yes, because  Accademia Italiana is a central spot for Bangkok’s fashion world. And you don’t need to be a student to benefit! The institute’s coffee shop is patronized by trendy students and senior fashionistas, and functions as a networking gold-mine to find out about new trends or emerging talents. The year-end graduation show is also a highly anticipated event, sponsored by Fashion TV and attended by the elite of the fashion industry.
