Q Academy is Quadrifoglio’s know-how at its best.

At QA we teach our methodology through workshops while training our attendees in simulating the customisation and implementation parts as if in real business life.

Quadrifoglio’s Collection Building & Buying Process Method transforms aesthetic principles into rational business processes.

The combination of style & rationality is our competitive advantage and key element of the methodology that is based on the fundamental understanding of consumers by analysing their style preferences and profiling their lifestyle characteristics.

Our method targets major improvements in sales and profitability of the business model.
