This year, Istituto Marangoni • The School of Fashion will hold a show on September 21st - for the first time ever - to open the iconic Milan Fashion Week, which hosts the fashion shows and events of the world’s most prestigious fashion labels every year.
Like every year, the spotlight will be on the school’s top ten Fashion Design students, selected by a panel of experts in the fashion system, from publishing to the most creative areas of fashion companies, including Art Directors and Stylists: Nicola Brognano, Creative Director at Blumarine, Letizia Schatzinger, Fashion Director at D Lui, Manuel Marelli, Head of Creative and Buying at Macondo, Antonio Moscogiuri, Editor-in-Chief at CAP74024 and Matteo Greco, Editor-in-Chief at The Greatest, Giampietro Baudo, Editor-in-Chief at L’Officiel Italia, Simone Furlan, Art Director and Stylist, Andrea Incontri, Creative Director, Martina Alese, Talent Acquisition Specialist at Gucci and Rina Tollio, Creative Talent Acquisition at OTB.
The highly anticipated Istituto Marangoni Fashion Show will feature collections designed by Giuliana Baldi, Carlotta Brancaccio, Gian Marco Caggiari, Filippo Cascinelli, Antea Galiazzo, Paul Majer, Giovanni Porta, Luca Scarponi, Guiyin Yang and Qiongwen Quiao. In addition to celebrating the professional growth of each of them at Istituto Marangoni, this year's event is also intended as a tribute to the city of Milan.
The fashion show will be hosted at the historic Palazzo Serbelloni, a neoclassical building as well as a meeting point between Italian art and aesthetic rethought to integrate GenZ aesthetic codes, in line with the Art Direction of the Show.
In this unique venue, heritage, musical rhythm and catwalk looks come together to create a dreamlike, sublime and at the same time ultra-contemporary atmosphere.
Guests will be invited to a real "Reflection" on the revolution and evolution that has involved the fashion system over the past year and a half, an industry that has proven to be incredibly sensitive, with a unique ability to always be the first to react, and in innovative ways, to the emergencies affecting the entire planet.
This reflection is also intended as a creative process developed by each student as part of their learning experience at Istituto Marangoni, culminating in their end-of-year collection.
An impressive set-up will visually enhance each part of the 60 outfits on the catwalk using reflective elements in the Hall.
The Show will be live streamed at 5pm (CET) on 21 September. Watch it by connecting to:
