Fashion as a universal phenomenon is considered a crucial aspect of our culture and society. Entering such an unparalleled moment of globalization, the influence and potential of fashion accelerate. The fashion industry has not only become more global in our time but also more knowledge-based. The new realities and shifts in the job market have fundamentally impacted our higher education system. In this paper, the researcher examines the current state of the discipline of fashion design, emphasizing the state of fashion design education in contemporary Italy and China. The former is one of the world’s leading fashion markets and is essential in fashion history. The latter is considered an emerging force, playing a decisive role in today’s global fashion business, occupying the most significant number of students studying abroad. Furthermore, the researcher demonstrates differentiated approaches adopted in prominent Italian and Chinese fashion design schools, providing the groundwork for future research practice.
