Pitti Immagine is back with 90th Pitti Filati, to be held in attendance from 2 to 4 February. The protagonists of this edition are the Final Work and Industry Projects of the students of the Level I Master in Creative Knitwear Design of Accademia Costume & Moda and Modateca Deanna, at the center of the “Knitwear Parade”. The special event will take place in the forecourt of the Stazione Leopolda in Florence, location of the event dedicated to yarns.
Now in its fifth edition, it renews its collaboration with 90th Pitti Filati through a different and innovative happening. An event that promotes the creativity of young designers and the precious partnership between companies in the sector.
In fact, this master embodies the perfect example of training created for industry and with industry, an important opportunity that allows you to join the links of the Italian supply chain.
The commitment of the players in the sector
The Master in Creative Knitwear Design by Accademia Costume & Moda and Modateca Deanna was born thanks to the generosity and commitment of more than forty companies in the sector participating in the project.
In October, the students presented their final works to a jury of experts, which were then created in collaboration with the course partners and presented during 90th Pitti Filati
The Final Work and Industry Projects of CKD Master students have always been the result of close collaboration between the world of education and industry, telling a story of generosity, foresight and dedication, experimentation and style.
The jury that selected the winning projects is made up of Barbara Trebitsch (@accademiacostumeemoda), Sara Sozzani Maino (vogueitalia), Francesca Tacconi (@pittimmagine), Giulia Piersanti (@celine) and Antonio Marras (@antoniomarrasofficial).
To welcome 90th Pitti Filati, in the entrance space of the Stazione Leopolda, will be the installation “Knitwear Parade” starring 78 knitwear looks, which represent the final collections and industry projects of the young designers.
An event within the event, designed to enhance the made in Italy supply chain, with its knitwear factories, spinners, laboratories and all the companies that promote an all-Italian “know-how”, between technology and craftsmanship.
