Hosting Missoni: Shaping a new vision

19 April 2024

On March 20th, Istituto Marangoni Paris had the privilege of hosting Luca Missoni, President of the Archives and Vice-President of the Ottavio and Rosita Missoni Foundation. Joined by excellent alumnus Pietro Fadda, Luca engaged an audience of fashion design students, recounting the remarkable journey of the iconic Missoni fashion house, renowned for its revolutionary knitted dresses and artistic patchwork since the 1950s.

During the event, Luca and Pietro shed light on Missoni's enduring commitment to art and sports, drawing inspiration from its rich archives to propel its vision forward. Under the guidance of programme leader Gianni Nembrini, Istituto Marangoni Paris's fashion design students have been tasked with the exciting challenge of reimagining Missoni for the Gen Z audience. This initiative, dubbed "Zaudacity," aims to infuse Missoni's avant-garde spirit with contemporary sensibilities.
