Pitti Filati 73 presents

The fourth edition of

The competition for aspiring knitwear designers

Fortezza da Basso

An increasingly integral part of Pitti Filati, under the new direction of Pitti Immagine, we salute the fourth edition of Feel the Yarn, the competition for aspiring knitwear designers selected from the graduates of the world’s major fashion schools which aims to expand the creativity of the yarns manufactured by the best mills in Italy.  This project is the result of the collaboration between Toscana Promozione, Unione Industriale Pratese-Confindustria Prato, Elementi Moda and Pitti Immagine.  Half training program, half competition, Feel the Yarn gets right to the heart of Pitti Filati with 20 students from 10 of the most important fashion design schools in the world facing the challenge of presenting their proposals for garments designed and knitted using yarns provided by the exhibiting companies, based on a theme that takes its cue from the Spazio Ricerca.
