Design students from national and international academies will be (are) at Lineapelle97 to investigate EQ, the Emotional Quotient, and present the results of their educational and training programs with leather. Students from IUAV University (Venice), Istituto Marangoni and Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera (Milan), as well as New Parsons School of Fashion (New York), are involved in a dual role at Lineapelle97. At Fieramilano Rho (October, 2-4) they will be able to learn about the stylistic proposal of the Milanese exhibition (dedicated to materials for fashion) for winter 2020/2021, and give public proof of their genius.
The concept of Emotional Quotient opens up a vast field of research and contamination. Students, being the expression of some of the most important international fashion institutes, visit Lineapelle to understand and to process. At the fair they have the opportunity to discover the samples offered by exhibitors and then to confront themselves with the creative stimulus. Each of the universities, then, has its own place of exhibition.
The presence of IUAV
The IUAV University of Venice is present with a space in Hall 15. Here are exposed the models created by the students of Fashion Design Laboratory 4 (third year, Accessories Module) as part of the training project “University and Industry: know-how and planning”, developed in collaboration with Lineapelle, Bonaudo and Centrorettili tanneries, Limonta for technical fabrics and YKK for small metallic parts.
Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera
Lineapelle 97 also hosts Academia di Belle Arti di Brera (Hall 9), presenting the most interesting leather-made interior design accessories made by students, in the context of a collaboration project started with Lineapelle in December 2018.
Meanwhile, at Motta Pelli stand (Hall 13) the results of the project carried out together with the students of Istituto Marangoni, in collaboration with Lineapelle, are exhibited. Students of the Master in Fashion Design Womenswear were engaged in making clothes.
