At Fashion Graduate Italia 2019 the talents of the Schools Milano, Firenze and London
This year, at Fashion Graduate Italia, a unique event in Italy dedicated to the Fashion System and future designers and organized by Piattaforma Sistema Formativo Moda, Istituto Marangoni brought together the best talents from three different locations of the Group, Milano, Firenze and London, to offer an overview of the best of global creativity.
On the day dedicated to the ‘Sustainable Visions’ collective fashion show, the students of 16 schools presented the results of their reflection on the complex theme of environmental and social sustainability, an issue addressed with an increasing commitment by the most important fashion brands.
To represent the creativity of Istituto Marangoni, three students took turns on the catwalk: Giulia Aliprandi presented the outfits of the spring/summer 2020 collection of her brand Ekò, inspired in particular by the theme of recycling of fabrics and unusual materials for the fashion world; Veronica Ferroli Mazza presented the outfits of her Genever collection inspired by gin & tonic, whose stylistic pillars are the natural materials used and the colours that want to remember the true pigment of quinine; and Mario Mele, whose collection tells the story of the evolution of the city of Matera, where sustainable development is expressed in the pursuit of social and environmental well-being – the Lukania collection translates itself into a journey through tradition, enhancing the territory thanks to tailored garments made entirely of wool tweed.
