In the backstage, a few hours before the beginning of the graduate fashion shows, there was a strange and almost quite atmosphere. All the collections, hung on the standers divided in ordered rows with the tag of each school on, awaited their moment.

Hundreds the styles, that represented the best of new Italian creativity in every form possible. There were vinyl skirts and waistcoats in bouclé wool and feathers, colorful raw wool coats and long fringes, hyperbolic shapes made in tweed, tulle mixed to snake leather, ethnic prints reinterpreted in a contemporary way and neon pleats, Victorian-style shapes and rubber embroideries, very chic sequin surfaces on giant wool or transparent PVC.

The workshops were very important for the event, because they attracted many young students coming from high schools, who had a direct approach to the method of each fashion school and learned some useful tricks for creating or projecting. In the second floor of BASE Milano, the schools organized 11 workshops regarding different aspects of fashion training, from millinery to styling, menswear design, moulage technique or shoes sketching.
