On Wednesday, July 3rd, Accademia Factory is back to Altaroma’s official calendar. Again the event will be a grand occasion to present the industry projects (in collaboration with Fashion Houses and Manufacturing companies) as well as the personal projects created by our students: BA Undergraduate Courses (3-Yr, 180 CFA), Graduate Master’s Courses (1-Yr 60 CFA), Vocational Courses and Intensive course. This event is intended to be a moment dedicated not only to the students and to the faculty, but to all of our stakeholders who contributed to reach very significant milestones
Among the projects exhibited will be those created by the students of the BA Undergraduate Courses in “Costume & Fashion”, “Fashion Editor, Styling & Communication”, “Cinema and FilmMaking: Media Design & Multimedial Arts”, and by students of the MA Graduate programs in Creative Knitwear Design in partnership with Modateca Deanna, moreover the contest Slowear “Windows of Talents”, the new magazine titled “TAPU 01_Unveil”, created by the students of the Vocational course in “Fashion Communication” and the Industry Projects created in collaboration with Il Bisonte, Maison Valentino, The Woolmark Company, developd by the students of the MA Programs in Alta Moda and those in Accessories, and more Woolrich, the Woolmark Company-Wool Lab, by those students of the Undergraduate Program in Costume and Fashion, while, the creations by the students of the Intensive Course in “Bijoux and Jewels” will appear in the In Town section of the Altaroma calendar.
With the saying “BE COOL”, the Accademia Costume & Moda opens its doors to announce, among other things, its role in the evolution in #PLASTICFREE. In fact, precisely on July the 3rd 2019, the Accademia in collaboration with 24Bottles will declare as banished all plastic products intended for single use. This represents an ecological evolution in alliance with Marevivo which adheres enthusiastically to the project for sustainability of our seas. This project has been desired and is “rightfully due” in view of the contemporaneity in which we live and which aims to render young people and fashion school students, our future professionals, more and more aware of working in a production system that is respectful of the environment and marine ecology. The event day will initiate at 10:30 a.m. with a talk titled #STOPMICROFIBRE which will have leading experts from all aspects of the Italian production chain and who the Accademia Costume & Moda is pleased to host along with Marevivo (enclosed is the program in detail).
The Exhibition is thought to immerse the visitor in the Accademia, transforming it into a stage, a film set, a creative laboratory, an atelier, a newsroom.
