The 30th edition of Vintage Selection will be held in Florence from 28 to 30 June. Vintage Selection is one of the most authoritative and prestigious international fairs for vintage fashion and design & quality remakes and, on the wave of the excellent results achieved last summer, it will be maintaining the Fortezza Da Basso as its summer location. In fact the fair will find its dimension inside the Medici Pavilion at the Fortezza, right at the start of the exhibition itinerary of Pitti Immagine Filati 81 – which is being held at the same time – an event that attracts almost 11,000 visitors from all over the world: buyers and designers from the most important brands in the fashion business.
The choice of a location reserved for the summer editions symbolizes the physical proximity to the Pitti Immagine fair and has been devised to further strengthen the synergy between the two events, as well as to offer an additional service to members of the trade.
A research laboratory that looks at fashions of the past as well as an extremely rich historical archive from which today’s designers can draw inspiration for their collections, every edition of Vintage Selection draws in growing numbers of international exhibitors and visitors. The title-theme for this 30th edition, VINTAGE REBLOOM – is in line with the theme of the Pitti Immagine summer fairs Boom, Pitti Blooms – and will highlight the way in which vintage culture represents the ongoing and repeated blossoming of clothing, accessories and objects from the past that contribute to inventing present and future fashions, with a constantly evolving creativity.
Enthusiasts, collectors and people curious to find something original, but also fashion designers, cool hunters and creatives from top international fashion companies: this is the type of public that frequents Vintage Selection. The synergy with this public of true connoisseurs – towards which Pitti Immagine directs international information and promotional campaigns – is one of the strengths and distinctive features of Vintage Selection and represents a further boost to the quality, innovation and stylistic research of its proposals that encompass all of contemporary vintage culture.
