Ten amazing months. Ten top-level teachers in the lecture theatre, one every month. Ten unique chances for learning by doing, elbow-to-elbow with the best. The Raffles Milano Masters: someone has come up with them at last. Why?

Fashion is education about beauty, the ability to express thoughts and emotions, the most direct expression of the contemporary world: colours, shapes and materials in perfect harmony. It is the most lively of the art forms, thriving on people in real life. Like in a major theatre "pièce", getting the stage-set just right is crucial in the game of seduction, but a part cannot stand for the whole.

Master in Fashion DesignExperiment is always the departure point for projects at Fashion Design and an exploration of “the beautiful,” an important part of any project. Projects are designed to question, explore and challenge, in a working environment that is far from the media’s “fashion circus.”Study trips abroad work to inspire the initial phase of one of the year’s projects. For fashion students there are of course several obvious places to go where one could be served up with next year’s trends: Paris, New York, London or Milan. But as we want to educate designers who can project new trajectories to explore rather than walk in the footsteps of others, we try to find alternatives, like Zagreb or Istanbul. Our students are involved in setting the order of the day, as regards the development of the professional thrust of Fashion Design. In general we work with three questions of interest that are all interrelated:... [-]
