The Pitti Tutorship Reward goes to... accessory designer Cristiana Guaglianone
On 27 January, the 2018 Talents from the Costume & Fashion Academy showed off their work on the AltaRoma catwalk. Fifteen capsule collections for men, women and accessories in which the new designers have highlighted the themes of "culture & research", "design & creativity" and "prototypes & product" that were central to their three years of study for the Level 1 Costume & Fashion Academic Diploma.
This year once again, Pitti Immagine – through the Pitti Tutorship division directed by Riccardo Vannetti, responsible for the support and development of fashion designers – selected one of the 15 2018 Talents to receive the “Pitti Tutorship Reward”. Established last year, the award gives young designers the opportunity to meet three times with Riccardo Vannetti – (1) Portfolio Review/Setup, (2) Orientation Meeting and (3) Strategy Meeting – with the aim of facilitating their transition into the world of work, as was the case for Ludovica Serra (2017 Talents).
