Feel The Yarn 2018
The new edition of Feel the Yarn is directed by Fondazione Pitti Immgine Discovery, Consorzio Promozione Filati and Elementi Moda. This is the competition dedicated to aspiring designers from a selection of the best international fashion schools that aims to expand the creative potential expressed by the yarns produced by the most qualified Italian spinning mills. One of the main innovations of this year is the number of schools involved in the contest and the focus on the selection. In fact, this year more than 26 students, coming from 14 international fashion schools take part in the challenge. Here listed below are all schools involved: Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology, Bunka Fashion College, Kolding Design School, Hanyang Women's University, Hochschule Luzern, Hochschule Niederrhein, Hochschule Trier, Kingston School of Art, L'Ecole de la Maille de Paris, Polimoda, Polytechnic of Milan, Royal college of Art, Shenkar College, The Hong Kong Polytechnic. This edition of Feel The Yarn has challenged its participants with a very stimulating theme: Hybridization. Inspired by this topic, the students present two outfits (fall / winter 19-20) for both men and women, produced with the precious yarns supplied by the 26 participating Italian spinning mills. The winner will be identified by a special commission coordinated by Elementi Moda, Consorzio Promozione Filati and Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery. The award for Start-up calls will be released regularly on www.feeltheyarn.it, starting from next September.
