Feel The Yarn
celebrates its first 10 years
15 schools, 27 students, 27 yarn manufacturers, 54 garments. These are the figures for the next edition of Feel the Yarn, the competition dedicated to aspiring designers from a selection of the best international fashion schools that is held under the direction of Pitti Immagine, Consorzio Promozione Filati and Elementi Moda with the aim of valorizing the creativity expressed by the yarns produced by the most highly qualified Italian yarn manufacturers. The competition, which this year is celebrating its 10th birthday with a party-event staged at the Serre Torrigiani, sees students challenge each other on a theme inspired by the Pitti Filati Spazio Ricerca. For next fall/winter 2020-2021, the theme is Co-Creation: our daily life is dominated by technology and science yet at the same time we desire personal emotional and sensorial experiences. The co-creations that emerge from these contradictory concepts will represent our individual creative expression.
