Raffles Milan - International design institute


The School that wasn't there.

The one that the market had been demanding for such a long time. The one that breaks down the walls between fashion and design, between teacher and student, between past and future. The one that thinks and speaks in the language of the 14 countries in which it operates. The one in order to bring up the best students has chosen the best maestros.

The school which is now here.

The one where they teach you to face up to challenges that nobody has even thought about yet. The one where you test yourself to your limits and learn to play your side of the game...with the sense of the limits. The one where they speak your language... and another 13 too! The one you will never one to leave.

Raffles Milano International Design Institute

A new fashion and design school in Milan? Yes, and its name is Raffles Milano Istituto Moda e Design. A school with an unconventional spirit and method. A school designed for students who intend to look the future straight in the eye. And above all, a school that has gathered together a formidable team of lecturers, in many cases leading names on the international style and design scene.

On the starting blocks, there are our Three-year Courses in Product Design, Visual Design, and Fashion design, in Italian and English, and a series of Masters to learn from the leaders.

The strength of a network with no boundaries

RM Milano comes to strengthen the existing international Raffles Group network, established more than 25 years ago in Singapore and now expanding energetically, with 26 colleges in 14 countries.

The decision to include ‘Milano’ in the name reflects our striving for excellence and our profound affinity with a city that has long been recognized as the world capital of design culture.

A school that gives a lot more

The education method used by Raffles Milano draws its inspiration from the practice of the Renaissance workshop and aims at doing real work on real projects for real clients.

From day one, lecturers and students are involved in a relationship with no separating walls.

Lecturer-student dialogue, a constant quest for new paths and secure foundations for a process of individual and team growth that trains students for tomorrow by preparing them to experience it as a natural evolution of today. Students learn to measure up to the dreams and aspirations of the future.

A school that is already a job

Raffles Milano is the school that was not there, but that companies have been demanding for such a long time, just as strong in the field of practice as in the area of theory.

All our projects have a purpose, a context, a stock of resources, a background of previous experience, a series of reasons why they happen, and, of course, a series of walls to breakthrough. This is what our students breathe in with every step they take.

The foundation stone of our didactic paths is the working world. In our Three-year Courses, students learn by doing, achieving the closest bond between theory and practice, between idea and execution. In our Master's courses, students meet directly with the leading names in the market in the lecture room and have the chance to work with them side by side.
