A tsunami of the future in Milan: Lineapelle Young Designers Edition

Uno tsunami di futuro a Milano: Lineapelle Young Designers Edition

The future, for Lineapelle, is a habit more than a mission. It is written for its business to open the doors to style trends in materials and accessories a season in advance of the finished product. But that is not enough. Lineapelle has always imagined the future for those who are to be the creative interpreters of these trends. So, on Thursday evening in Milan, in the setting of Piazza Tomasi di Lampedusa (where the lights of Spazio Lineapelle are shining) the debut of Lineapelle Young Designers Edition was on stage. In other words, the spin-off of the Designers Edition that takes place two times a year at the fair, but dedicated to students from the top fashion institutes in Italy. It was a true feast of creativity: a tsunami of the future.

10 schools and over 40 students involved. A number of looks whose stylistic delivery was to give expression to a new vision of leather. A gallery of garments that impressed for the professionalism of the approach, the ability to interpret the material, and the level of creativity. Protagonists: Brera Academy of Fine Arts, Costume & Fashion Academy, Academy of Luxury, AFOL Fashion, Harim Euro-Mediterranean Academy, IED – European Institute of Design, IUAV University of Venice, Polimoda, Milan Polytechnic School of Design, Officina Vanvitelli University of Campania.

A tsunami of the future in Milan

The Lineapelle Young Designers Edition fashion show hit the mark. In front of a packed square, the future designers staged a show that, as Fulvia Bacchi (CEO of Lineapelle) recalled, was part of a training tradition that goes way back. Exactly since 1984, “the year in which Lineapelle gave life to the Young Designers Competition”. An initiative that over the course of 40 years has discovered and launched a number of leading creatives and that, having fulfilled its mission, finds new energy and vision in this Young Designers Edition.

“Make way for young people”, sets out clearly Mariella Milani, journalist and fashion and costume expert. The effort that UNIC – Italian Tanneries and Lineapelle have been making for 40 years to promote young people through workshops and training projects, in collaboration with the most important Italian and international fashion institutes is “definitely praiseworthy. A positive example of collaboration between school and industry”.
