Beyond traditional categories of people based on societal constructs, in the end there is always the human. Tell Me About You insists students do exactly this; express who they are with their clothes, to us and to themselves. Their tool is the garment - to communicate an identity, create a silent dialogue, and begin a story.
The Polimoda Fashion Show for 2017 will take place on June 15th on the occasion of the 92nd edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo. Villa Favard, the opulent 19th-century building located along the Arno river in the heart of Florence and headquarters of Polimoda, will host the best menswear and womenswear collections by final year students of the undergraduate course in Fashion Design.
Guided by Linda Loppa, Polimoda’s Advisor of Strategy and Vision and mentor to these students, this event will celebrate the completion of a four-year course of study. Moreover, it will be a moment to show to the world the work of young designers before a selected audience of fashion insiders including journalists, companies and industry professionals, alongside an international jury who together will decide the Best Collection for 2017.
The show’s director will be Piergiorgio Del Moro at DM Fashion Studio, the world-renowned casting director and member of the BOF 500.
The Polimoda Fashion Show 2017 is conducted with the support of Vogue Talents and Not Just a Label.
Composed of some of the most influential contemporary fashion figures, this jury will decide the Best Collection of 2017. The awarded student will then receive special support from the Institute in the academic year following.
The sound design of the Show will be by DJ and producer Kim Ann Foxman. Over the last few years, Kim has become known across the world as an eclectic underground electronics artist, who also became a style icon after the success of the collective Hercules and Love Affair.
Selected from the entire cohort of final year Fashion Design students, the following young designers will present their collections on the runway this year.
The Polimoda Fashion Show 2017 will be published live via our Facebook page on June 15th from 7pm.
This event is by invitation only.
