John Bartlett

The runway show of 2000/01 Autumn-Winter collection

Stazione Leopolda

On the occasion of the 57th edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo, on the evening of Friday, January 14, 2000, the Stazione Leopolda will host the runway show of John Bartlett’s collection for the 2000/01 Autumn-Winter season.

John Bartlett is one of the most interesting designers on the international scene today and Pitti Immagine has been attentively tracking him for several seasons. He has a degree in sociology from Harvard; in 1994 he won the “Perry Ellis Award for Fashion Talent”, and in 1997 the Council of Fashion Designers of America Award as the best men’s fashion designer of the year.

For his Florentine show, and the dinner party immediately after, John Bartlett created a nocturnal atmosphere, filled with impressive elements: a setting in dark tones, illuminated by large candles in metallic cages that let the light flicker through – something between St. Petersburg and the New York Meat Packing district.

This is the first time that the young American designer, whose clothes are manufactured by Gruppo Genny, will be showing his collection in Europe. It is yet another event that proves the commitment Pitti Immagine puts into promoting international creativity.
