The fashion communication system, or better, the fashion system has changed and it is constantly mutating. A conversation with one of the most important critics on the state of fashion after the recent fashion shows is at the center of this meeting. An exchange and a discussion involving students and teachers to analyze the present and hypothesize future scenarios.
A professional journalist since 1991, he began very young to write for the roman news of Corriere della Sera. He has been the first male journalist to deal specifically with fashion, capturing the aspects related to social, economic and anthropological changes. He is currently a member of the Fashion Committee called by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage (MiBAC) and editor-in-chief of Marie Claire, but during his career he has written for various magazines: from Diario – for which he collaborated from the first to the last issue – to Vogue Italia, from Sole 24 Ore in Milan Fashion finance, passing through Gioia, Grazia, Vanity Fair, Elle, Style, Io Donna. He holds seminars in the most important Italian and foreign universities (Politecnico and La Statale and Iulm in Milan, IUAV in Venice, La Sapienza in Rome, the Alma Mater Studiorum in Bologna) as well as being “visiting professor” in many professional schools. Since 1992 he has held the chair “Analysis of the Fashion System” at Domus Academy in Milan, and lectured at the Academy of Costume and Fashion in Rome, at Polimoda in Florence, at Naba and at Istituto Marangoni in Milan, among others. He has published several books, including “Moda!” (2006), the monograph “Antonio Marras” (2006), “Finalmente libere” (2010). His book “Fashion Box” (2011) has been translated in eleven languages. He has edited and written essays for exhibition catalogs related to fashion and art. Among the latest, he wrote a text for the exhibition in Triennale by Rick Owens and for Italiana – L’Italia seen in fashion from 1971-2001, which has just been held in the rooms of Palazzo Reale in Milan. In June 2018 he curated the first exhibition of the designer Giulio Ceppi, that was held at the Triennale in Milan. He loves fashion, much less people who say they love it. He detests, like Nanni Moretti, the word “trendy”. He continues to dream of a world where everyone dresses as they want and not as they should. Unfortunately, nobody believes him.
