As one of London’s top fashion universities, Istituto Marangoni knows how to thrust its students onto the fashion scene. The renowned institution hosts ten campuses around the globe, across Italy, Paris, Dubai, London, and more.

As an annual practice, Istituto Marangoni actively welcomes established designers to guide its students across immersive learning experiences that will prepare them for their exit into the industry. In 2022, the university received Olivier Rousteing and British journalist Katie Grand onto its educational grounds in London and Paris.

For 2023, Istituto Marangoni’s London school will welcome celebrated British menswear designer Grace Wales Bonner. The LVMH and CFDA award-winning designer will work closely with students in workshops and lectures, sharing her experience via engaging panel discussions and providing detailed feedback to university pupils.

In addition, Istituto Marangoni London students will be granted the opportunity to support Grace’s Paris Fashion Week show first-hand by working alongside the designer in the lead-up to February 2023.

Speaking on the partnership, Istituto Marangoni London’s School Director Valérie Berdah-Levy says:

“It is with great honour and admiration that we announce the collaboration of the London School with Grace Wales Bonner on this inspiring creative mentorship programme. We are excited for the students to have the opportunity to master their craft alongside such an influential figure for young designers and fashion moguls worldwide. Grace’s time and motivation to drive new talent is empowering and inspiring to watch in action. I cannot wait to witness the abundance of creativity and passion that will result from this outstanding collaboration of great young minds.”
