Program Description

Master in Fashion Design Menswear

Raffles Milano - International Fashion and Design School

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 theater "pièce", getting the stage-set just right is crucial in the game of seduction, but a part cannot stand for the whole. To be able to keep on winning over an increasingly stimulated and probably confused consumer is to go back to fundamentals by employing in-depth technical training.

Professional opportunities

This Masters course is designed to maximize the unique characteristics of each student’s creative genius, but it also aims to forge highly qualified, dynamic professionals who will find it easy to build their careers. At the end of the ten month study period, their extensive knowledge of the entire work process will enable students to find employment in menswear style office with fashion brands in Italy and internationally.

Who should attend

This Masters course is addressed to design graduates, students with a diploma from Fashion schools and young designers who want to confront themselves with practicing professionals, so as to broaden their horizons to encompass new forms of experimentation and new aesthetic opportunities. The aim is to train the stars of tomorrow’s fashion scene, equipping them with an independent, unique creative vision and at the same time a strong ability to penetrate into the complexity of a highly volatile market.

But above all they will work together, step-by-step, on constructing a collection, both in a portfolio and in a real piece. Lastly, they will also learn how to go about styling, editing and managing the final runway presentation.
