Feel The Yarn, the fifth edition

Fortezza da Basso

An increasingly integral part of Pitti Filati, under the direction of Pitti Immagine, we salute the fifth edition of Feel the Yarn, the competition for aspiring designers from the world’s finest fashion schools which aims at expanding the creativity of yarns manufactured by the best mills in Tuscany.


This project is the result of the collaboration between Toscana Promozione, Consorzio Promozione Filati, Elementi Moda, and Pitti Immagine. Half training program, half competition, Feel the Yarn gets right to the heart of the Pitti Filati where students from the most important fashion design schools in the world, will take up the challenge of presenting their proposals for garments designed to a theme inspired by the Spazio Ricerca and knitted with yarns provided by Tuscan yarn mills.
