On May 21st and 22nd, Polimoda students will play a central role in Les Journées Particulières at Emilio Pucci’s premises at the Villa Granaiolo, in the Tuscan hills. Students from Polimoda, ECAL and Central Saint Martins will participate in a special workshop involving projects inspired by the Pucci archive. This project is open to the public by registration, and is part of a visit to the Emilio Pucci exhibition rooms and Talent Centre.
Specifically, the pattern-making atelier will invite three Polimoda students to have the opportunity to work for one week in the Maison’s tailors to study the print placement and the importance of framing. They will then follow the different stages of creating a garment, where the final touches will be carried out together with the expert hands of the Maison’s seamstresses during this event.
The program features also visits to two exhibitions; Elements outlining the codes that define the brand and provide its distinctive character, and Hands, dedicated to the unique expertise of the House’s designers and the prints they produce.
Visiting Hours: Saturday – Sunday / 10AM – 6PM / duration of visit: 45 minutes.
Access: Villa di Granaiolo, Via Vittorio Niccoli 394, Loc. Granaiolo, Castelfiorentino (Florence)
Registrations open from April 21.

On the 20th, 21st and 22nd of May, 2016, the LVMH group is opening the doors of its Houses throughout Europe. Across more than 50 exceptional locations, the inner workings of the GROUP and skills of its 130,000 employees will be on display.
Through Les Journées Particulières, the LVMH Group is committed to preserving and nurturing the unique heritage of its Houses, some of which are centuries old. This engagement is anchored in sharing and transmitting the savoir-faire that is both the fruit of tradition, and the fresh starting point for continually renewed creativity. Sharing this allows the public to discover the heritage, métiers and talents behind exceptional design and products.
This third edition of Les Journées Particulières marks a new step in the commitment to openness. Thanks to this initiative, the public is invited to see what goes on behind the scenes to better understand the passion and creativity of the Group from the inside.
We are proud to be sharing the passion that drives the LVMH Group’s people once again. This year, our houses will ensure to welcome the general public with the same generosity that they show to designers and artisans, including young talents that are destined to bud and blossom within the LVMH Group.
