What’s a Fashion Designer if noone sees his/her creativity? During the Portfolio Night, RafflesMilano invites recruiters and managers from the most important fashion brands.
The Course Leader: Arthur Arbesser
Born and raised in the Austrian capital Vienna, Arthur was deeply immersed in the city’s culture. The streamlined turn-of-the-century architecture as well as the evocative heritage of applied arts and design remain a strong source of inspiration for him today.
At Central Saint Martins College for Art and Design he quickly developed his personal aesthetics, influenced by his intimate contact with London’s prolific art scene.
Upon graduation he moved to Milan to work for Giorgio Armani for 7 years.
Arthur launched his eponymous women’s wear label in February 2013.
He was one of the finalists at the second edition of the LVMH prize in 2015, and in June of the same year, he was invited to participate at the prestigious PITTI Immagine Fair in Florence as a women’s wear guest designer.
Besides his own namesake label, he works as a creative consultant for other international brands and continuous high profile collaborations with Apple, Silhouette Eyewear, HEM furniture, the Vienna State ballet and the Berlin State Opera add a creative impulse to his universe.
He establishes his own sophisticated style enhanced by vivid graphics and finest quality fabrics, his silhouettes radiate a pure, yet sensual appeal of modernity.
Who is this for
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.
Learning directly from practitioners is the best way to pick up the most advanced visions and methods at source.

Each professional spends a month with the students. 8 four-week months and 2 three-week months.
Each week you will have a 6 hour day and an 8 hour day lesson with the experts.
At the end of the month, the student receives an evaluation on the developed project.
Some professionals can be replaced during the Master, with other top-level studios, maintaining the international Faculty’s standards.
