The night before · The 2017 Milano Fashion Show

“The end of a journey. The beginning of a new chapter.
A dream come true: the first fashion show.”

Istituto Marangoni presents The 2017 Milano Fashion & Degree Show, the runway of the 10 best students from The Milano School of Fashion, which this year is made even greater by the pairing with an exhibition in motion, in which other 25 talented students of the School present their works.

As every year, intense and unforgettable emotions are arising from the anticipation of the most important moment for the fresh graduates of Istituto Marangoni’s Fashion Design course. They all come together in “The Night Before…”, the moment when each of the 10 best talents selected to attend the Graduate Fashion Show is shivering, longing and waiting for a crucial event in their Fashion Design career: the debut on the runway.

The capsule collection of Istituto Marangoni Milano’s Best Students will be presented on June 20th, starting at 7.30pm, at the prestigious Teatro Vetra, 7 Piazza Vetra – Milano, an exclusive venue in one of the most stylish and vibrant areas of Italy’s Fashion Capital. A unique event indeed, aimed at giving importance and visibility to talent and constant dedication, a peculiar feature of Istituto Marangoni’s dna, as the School always supports its students at all stages of their career path, enhancing their genius and providing cutting-edge tools to achieve the goals set.
Among the 10 best students of the Milano Fashion School, Lu Xia has been awarded Designer of the Year.
