Pitti Uomo 88
is the womenswear guest designer
Thomas Tait, the London-based Canadian fashion designer will be the Womenswear Guest Designer of Pitti Immagine Uomo 88. Mr. Tait, who is twenty-seven years old, graduated from Central Saint Martins and won the LVMH prize in 2014.
“Over the past few seasons, Thomas Tait’s women’s showings at London’s fashion week have become not-to-be-missed events,” says Lapo Cianchi, Director of Communications and Events at Pitti Immagine. “We like his coherence, sartorial skills, unexpected shapes and dry devotion to design. He is never afraid to experiment and push the envelope. That is why we thought of offering him the opportunity to express his creativity here in Florence with an unusual – unusual for him, that is – project, that we could call “reflections on his work”, with the “help” of special places in the city.”
