Lineapelle Merchandising Collection
Launched in May 2019, the Lineapelle Merchandising Collection project involves students from four courses, who were asked to develop a capsule collection for Lineapelle. The project consist of seven merchandising products. Divided into a team of four, at the end of November students will present their project, complete with a graphic proposal and mock-up of the products. The jury will then choose the best idea to be realised. On the occasion of Lineapelle, participating students will be visiting the fair to collect ideas and inspirations in view of the final presentation.
“Trends in recent times has flattened a lot. There is a need for a new creative wave in clothing as in accessories – emphasises the director of Polimoda, Danilo Venturi, in a statement -. As a fashion school among the top ten in the world, we have a duty to prepare young people for the work world that awaits them. This is why we put a top-level creative director like Massimiliano Giornetti at the head of the design department. Lineapelle is the first public exhibition of this new course, and we immediately want to give a strong signal: Creativity can’t be contained!”.
