Midsummer Night’s Dream – MilanoPride 2022

We wait for you
from Saturday June 25 to Saturday July 02
in via Felice Casati 16, Milano (P.ta Venezia M1)!

On the occasion of Milano Pride 2022, RafflesMilano is promoting an exhibition of the final projects of the fashion course, dedicated to the themes of freedom and awareness, respect and acceptance, creativity and spectacle, transformation and transgression.

The exhibition opens on Tuesday 21 June at 6 p.m. to celebrate the summer solstice and is dedicated to William Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' (staged with great success by the Elfo Theatre since the early 1980s).

The students' outfits will be enriched by Luigi Ciuffreda. and Tiziano Guardiniwhich project Shakespearean characters into the latest trends of the new millennium.

From Saturday 25 June, the building will be completely covered in precious Colombo Group textiles in the colours of the LGBTQ+ flag,creating an extraordinary rainbow façade; the canvases will then be recycled & upcycled by students from all RafflesMilano courses and masters.

The exhibition will be open to the public from Saturday 25 June, the day on which the school's façade will be set up, until until Saturday 2 July, the day on which the final Pride parade will be held, with the Porta Venezia district and the RafflesMilano venue at the heart of the event. On both days the school will be open all day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and the students will talk about the creative process behind their collection.
