On the afternoon of March 17th, the graduating students of MA Collection Design and MA Shoe & Bag Collection Design will present their work in a multimedia installation in Villa Favard, MORPHOLOGY. The garments and accessories will be exhibited amongst a photo series shot at the striking Museo Marino Marini, and the projection of a video filmed in the ex-slaughterhouse, Officina Giovani in Prato.
It’s this collaborative nature that’s the core of the installation, involving the most directional image-makers in Florence with an unconventional collection of spaces, mediums, and voices. The core of creativity in fashion is design, though the voice of a designer extends beyond the clothing into architecture, dance, music and art; facilitated and inspired by collaborative expression with Creative Studio MONOGRID and photographer Guglielmo Profeti.
This is the vision beyond the product; a vision that will inspire the audience, customers, and the industry as a whole. With an innovative consideration of space and value for the process of design, MORPHOLOGY will stimulate transformation; the transformation of fabric into garments, 2D into 3D, churches into museums, and students into designers.
