Ten extraordinary months, with teachers of international level. A unique opportunity to learn directly from the protagonists. Master Raffles Milano : finally someone has thought about it.Course leader: Arthur Arbesser, Fashion DesignerBorn and raised in Vienna, Arthur was immediately fascinated by the culture and history of the city, whose architectural dynamism and heritage of applied arts still remain a great source of inspiration for him today. At Central Saint Martins College for Art and Design, he quickly develops his aesthetic, supported by new knowledge of the London art scene. Immediately after graduating he moved to Milan and began working in the Giorgio Armani team, where he remained for seven years. In February 2013, Arthur launched his own brand. In 2015, at the second edition of the prestigious LVMH award, he is part of the circle of seven finalists and, in June of the same year, he participates as a guest designer at PITTI Immagine in Florence. In addition to his namesake brand, Arthur collaborates with companies such as Apple, Silhouette Eyewear, HEM and YOOX. The complex new challenge of designing costumes for the 2018 Vienna New Year's Ballet and the Berlin State Opera gave him a new creative impetus. Today he is internationally known as one of the most promising designers, who expresses himself through a very personal and sophisticated style, embellished with lively graphics and a careful choice of fabrics, with which his silhouettes bring out the charm of a sensual modernity.Find out “Why choose Raffles Milano ” and meet the Master in Fashion design & Business with Course Leader Arthur Arbesser.Because?Fashion is education in beauty, the ability to express thoughts and emotions, the most direct manifestation of the contemporary. Colors, shapes and materials in perfect harmony. It is the liveliest of art forms, which lives on people, in real life. As in a great play, the staging is fundamental in the game of seduction, but the part cannot stand for the whole. To be able to win back an increasingly stressed and probably confused consumer, it is necessary to return to the substance through a thorough technical preparation.Professional opportunitiesThe Master is designed to magnify the uniqueness of the creative genius of the individual student, but it also aims to train highly qualified, dynamic professionals who can easily be inserted into the world of work. At the end of the 10 months of study, thanks to an in-depth knowledge of the entire work process, students will find employment in the men's and women's style offices of Italian and international fashion companies.To whom it is addressedThe Master is aimed at graduates in Design, graduates of costume and fashion academies, but also at young designers eager to confront professionals in the world of work to open up to new forms of experimentation and new aesthetic horizons. The goal is to train future protagonists of the fashion world with an independent and unique creative vision, and at the same time a strong ability to penetrate the complexity of a highly volatile market.ProgramOver the course of the Master, students acquire a well-rounded vision of the fashion industry, working side by side with the professionals who lead today's luxury market. Trends in costume and macro business are analyzed, we talk about aesthetics applied to fashion, boards are created, we work on targeted research led by experts in the sector. But above all we work together step-by-step on the construction of a collection, both on the portfolio and on the real garment. And finally, you learn how to do styling and editing, right up to managing the final staging.TopicsMood board creation
ProductionStudent of the yearAt the end of each academic year, RM awards the best talent of each year of the course.
The recognition is given to the student who, for academic career and portfolio, has distinguished himself in the evaluation of both a commission of internal teachers and that of a commission of external professionals, called in this case to judge a portfolio guaranteed by anonymity.Project teachersLearning directly from the protagonists means acquiring the most advanced visions and methods at the source. Unlike the traditional Masters, the Raffles Milano Masters bring knowledge into action in the classroom thanks to 10 professionals at the top of the market who alternate in the classroom over ten months.
Each professional spends a month with the students. 8 months of 4 weeks and 2 months of 3 weeks.
For each week there is a 6-hour day and an 8-hour day of lessons with the professional.
At the end of each month the student receives an evaluation on the project carried out.
Some of the professionals could be replaced during the Master, with other professionals at the top of the market, keeping the level of the international Faculty unchanged.Maria Walter Nielsen

For this reason, students have during the 10 months 200 hours of lessons with the method teachers, the lessons are distributed during the 10 months of the Master.
Some of the method teachers could be replaced during the Master, keeping the Faculty level unchanged.Lia Luzzatto (Theorist and color consultant)
