Three year course in fashion design


Program Description

Learning to do this is the underlying principle of the three-year courses at Raffles Milano, a training path that structures the mind, provides a solid technical baggage and makes you want to broaden your horizons of life.


The fashion system is a vast, articulated, even unpredictable territory where the classic sense meets the most thrilling experimentation. There are no recipes to emerge. There is predisposition to work, a desire to know and measure with the outside world and its thousands of cultures: high, pop, ethno ... There is an acute eye - to be trained - able to capture the smallest detail. An eye familiar with traditional tailoring methods but is not afraid to offer irriverent elegance.

Professional Opportunities

The world of style and professions is evolving, traditional categories are becoming porous. In addition to the careers inside the fashion houses, alongside the great designers (designer assistant, pattern maker, production assistant, fashion stylist and fashion illustrator) or in their own, internationally they are creating a series of crossing type functions and opportunities , Linked to creativity, production, distribution and promotion. Even in these contexts, relying on high-profile preparation is almost always the winning card.

Who is

The course is aimed at candidates with a high school diploma and students from Italian or international universities. The ideal candidate is driven by a sincere passion for design, style and costume, and wishes to embark on a career in the fashion world by leveraging on their own design, interpretation and communication skills, as well as their talents and talents. During the three years of the course, students acquire unresponsive reading keys, which can be applied effectively in future professional and creative contexts.


First year: Elective elements in the study of Fashion design, general framing. Second year: Intermediate development of specific themes and insights. Third year: completion of the themes, final project and portfolio building. In particular, students analyze shapes, silhouettes, materials, production processes, social and costume factors that are the basis of a conscious, articulated and original design.
