Experimentation, reinterpretations and innovations, an atmosphere smelling of creativity, those are the main features of Talents 2016, fashion contest of the Rome Costume and Fashion Academy – which was held at the marvelous building of Rome Ex Dogana, place under the sign of industrial, metropolitan suggestions and contemporary times where took place the events curated by Altaroma – which featured the final works by the graduated students of the renowned fashion school headed by Lupo Lanzara and Adrien Yakimov Roberts as director of education, showed behind a jury of experts as Silvia Venturini Fendi (President of Altaroma), Carlo Capasa (President of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion), Laura Lusuardi (Max Mara Creative Director), Leonardo Pucci (Christian Dior) and many others. Ilaria Fiore won this edition, who has also awarded with a special prize for the accessories she made. The bright creative made a capsule collection joining sartorialism and experimentation, combines the cloth with leather, where the accessories or rather bags and belts become a fundamental part of dress (though they are removable). Lightness, minimalism, rebellion against family, father and dialectics of power is what the collection by Deniza Nugnes talks about, who – as she told me days ago, during the fitting of the fashion show which was held at the Costume & Fashion Academy – has inspired by the cultural revolution from 1968 and subverted the male wardrobe, its constructions giving rise to minimal essential garments and successful asymmetries. Many are the ideas on the move drawing new shapes and lines as the sphere becoming the fundamental idea of the collection by Andrea Maria di Salvo where white is the main features, which embodies many theatrical references.

ALTAROMA: I TALENTS 2016 DELL’ ACCADEMIA DI COSTUME & MODA DI ROMA

Sperimentazione, reinterpretazioni e innovazioni, un’ atmosfera che profuma di creatività, questi i principali protagonisti di Talents 2016, il fashion contest dell’ Accademia Costume e Moda di Roma -che si è tenuto nei  meravigliosi spazi dell’ Ex Dogana di Roma, luogo all’ insegna di suggestioni industrial, metropolitane e contemporaneità  in cui hanno avuto luogo gli eventi curati da Altaroma – di cui sono stati protagonisti i final works degli studenti neo-diplomati nella rinomata scuola di moda diretta da Lupo Lanzara e da Adrien Yakimov Roberts nelle vesti di direttore didattico, che sono stati presentati dinanzi a una giuria di esperti quali Silvia Venturini Fendi (Presidente di Altaroma), Carlo Capasa (Presidente della Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana), Laura Lusuardi (Direttore Creativo di Max Mara), Leonardo Pucci (Christian Dior) e molti altri. Vincitrice di questa edizione è Ilaria Fiore, la quale è stata insignita anche di un premio speciale per gli accessori da lei realizzati. La brillante creativa ha creato una collezione capsule che unisce sartorialità e sperimentazione, abbina il tessuto alla pelle, in cui gli accessori ovvero borse e cinture diventano parte integrante dell’ abito (pur essendo rimovibili). Leggerezza, minimalismo e ribellione contro la famiglia e la dialettica del potere è ciò di cui parla la collezione di Deniza Nugnes, la quale -. come mi ha detto giorni fa, durante il fitting della sfilata che si è tenuto all’ Accademia di Costume e Moda – si è ispirata alla rivoluzione culturale del 1968 ed ha sovvertito il guardaroba maschile, le sue costruzioni dando vita a capi minimali e felici asimmetrie. Plurime le idee in movimento che disegnano nuove forme e linee quali la sfera che diventa il concetto fondante della collezione di Andrea Maria di Salvo in cui il bianco è il principale protagonista, la quale racchiude in sé plurimi riferimenti teatrali.

A celebration, the 50th birthday of Rome Costume & Fashion Academy, which coincided with the opening of its new academic year and with the launch of book “Accademia Costume & Moda 1964-2014” by Maria di Napoli Rampolla and Antonio Mancinelli, was recently held in Rome at the Rome Costume & Fashion Academy. The afternoon event was under the sign of fashion. There were many celebrated personas from the fashion realm as Beppe Modenese, Anna Fendi, Piero Tosi, Adriano Franchi, Fabiana Balestra, Fabio Quaranta, Deanna Ferretti Veroni, Laura Lusuardi, Donata Sartorio, Alessandra Spalletti, Maria Luisa Frisa, the ex-alumni of Academy Tommaso Aquilano, Maurizio Galante and Sylvio Giardina. Here it was hosted a talk moderated by Cinzia Malvini which featured the creative director of Gucci fashion house Frida Giannini, who was a student of Academy. The fashion designer talked about creativity as “result of a team work”. Concerning young creatives she is focused on “observing the hand, the way they draw, as the instinct and vision of free hand makes the difference”. She talked about her experience made working at Fendi fashion house “where she learnt to be in place as today it’s important how to approach”, considering there is a Wikipedia culture today in many realms”. A video, introduced by Cinzia Malvini told about the Women association she launched and an live music event featuring Beyonce, Rita Ora, Jessie J, Florence & the Machine and many others. The association made concrete over 390 projects supporting the women. The talk with Frida Giannini ended with her suggestion for the student: let’s study, work hard and have fun”. Later, another ex-alumnus, the fashion journalist Antonio Mancinelli talked about his experience. He wanted to work as fashion designer and during the study at the Academy he changed his path and came to the journalism. He considered the wearability as value and result of a suggestion given him in the form of a question by Rosana Pistolese, the founder of Academy, arising from the view of a creation he made: “is it wearable?”, she asked him. Antonio said yes, it was, but naturally it was not. And since this experience, that became a paradigm to look at fashion, “something which always features in the Gucci collections Frida made, the wearability, their being wearable and super glamourous”. He considered “Rosana Pistolese as a kind of human Facebook, as she catalysed a series of important personas”. Later it was told about the book celebrating the fifty years of Academy, a book made with the support and collaboration with Altaroma and Alcantara along with the initiatives of Academy as the creations of the ex-alumni Association in order to give them working opportunities. A successful event depicting the laudable work of a bright Institution.

UNA CELEBRAZIONE & L’ INAUGURAZIONE DELL’ ANNO ACCADEMICO DELL’ ACCADEMIA DI COSTUME & MODA DI ROMA

Una celebrazione, il 50° compleanno dell’ Accademia di Costume & Moda di Roma, in concomitanza con l’ apertura del suo nuovo anno accademico e la presentazione del libro “Accademia Costume & Moda 1964-2014” a cura di Maria di Napoli Rampolla e Antonio Mancinelli, si è recentemente tenuta a Roma presso l’ Accademia di Costume e Moda di Roma. L’ evento pomeridiano è stato all’ insegna della moda. Presenti molteplici celebri personaggi della moda quali Beppe Modenese, Anna Fendi, Piero Tosi, Adriano Franchi, Fabiana Balestra, Fabio Quaranta, Deanna Ferretti Veroni, Laura Lusuardi, Donata Sartorio, Alessandra SpallettiMaria Luisa Frisa, gli ex-allievi dell’ Accademia Tommaso Aquilano, Maurizio Galante e Sylvio Giardina. Ivi è stato ospitato un talk moderato dalla giornalista Cinzia Malvini di cui è stato protagonista il direttore creativo della casa di moda Gucci Frida Giannini, che è stata una studentessa dell’ Accademia. La fashion designer ha parlato di creatività come “risultato di un lavoro di gruppo”. Riguardo ai giovani creativi si è concentrata sull’ “osservare la mano, il modo in cui disegnano, perché l’ istinto e la visione della mano libera fà la differenza”. Ha raccontato la sua esperienza di lavoro presso la casa di moda Fendi “dove ha imparato a stare al proprio posto, poiché oggi è importante come comportarsi”, considerando che “oggi c‘ è una cultura da Wikipedia un po’ su tutti i fronti”. Un video, presentato da Cinzia Malvini parlava dell’ Associazione per le Donne da lei lanciata e di un evento musicale con  Beyonce, Rita Ora, Jessie J, Florence & the Machine e molti altri. L’ associazione ha concretizzato più di 390 progetti a sostegno delle donne. Il talk con Frida Giannini si è concluso con un simpatico monito da lei dato  agli studenti: “studiate, impegnatevi e divertitevi”. Successivamente, un altro ex-allievo, il giornalista di moda Antonio Mancinelli ha parlato della sua esperienza all’ Accademia. Voleva lavorare come fashion designer e durante gli studi all’ Accademia ha cambiato il suo percorso ed è approdato al giornalismo. Costui ha preso in considerazione la portabilità come valore e risultato di un suggerimento a lui dato in forma di domanda da Rosana Pistolese, la fondatrice dell’ Accademia, derivante dalla visione di una sua creazione: “lo indosseresti?”, chiese a lui. Antonio rispose di si, ma naturalmente il capo non era indossabile. E a partire da questa esperienza, ciò è divenuto un suo paradigma per guardare la moda e qualcosa che appare sempre nelle collezioni Gucci realizzate da Frida: la indossabilità, l’ esser portabili e super glamourous. Riteneva “Rosana Pistolese una sorta di Facebook umano, perché catalizzava una serie di personaggi importanti”. A seguire si è parlato del libro che celebra i cinquanta anni dell’ Accademia, un libro realizzato con il sostegno e la collaborazione di Altaroma ed Alcantara unitamente alle iniziative dell’ Accademia quali la creazione di un’ Associazione di ex-alunni al fine di offrire opportunità lavorative. Un felice evento che ritrae il lodevole lavoro di una brillante istituzione.

It’s important to know what is your seat: Rome Capitol Square before the start of T.A.G., photo by N

I recently featured in the nice fashion contest T.A.G., event which was held in the Rome Capitol Square, including a showcase of sport and ballet. The contest gave the chance to young graduated students to present their creations and win a money scholarship amounting to 1000 Euros and an internship at the Milan atelier of Raffaella Curiel. Awards were given to personas of world sport as the Olympic Games champion of foil Valentina Vezzali who also featured on the stage as jury member sat down close to me, as well as the sport journalist Valeria Ciardiello and the pr Michela Bonafoni along with the dancers Kledi and Giuseppe Picone, Stefano Dominella, CEO of Gattinoni fashion house and the bright fashion designer Chiara Boni. The event included the live performance of Bussoletti, an emerging singer, of whose song he made “Come scemi” (meaning “Like idiots”), a song about the habit of taking selfie, became famous due to a commercial of an Italian brand of ice-creams. It was nice to see a project made to increase and support the creativity, dance and sport being in the area of Rome, but I have to add something, some remarks concerning that and initiatives like that. Today “young talents” and “emerging creativity” along with “start-up” are words that became empty slogans in the fashion of the “love’s party”, old memory from Berlusconism. That wants to be a double alert, regarding the people who set up projects like these ones and the fashion schools training the students in order to use sense in what they do and develop. My words are strictly connected to this experience and a moment of that or rather when it was asked me for giving some remarks on the fashion shows. I did it, though later it was asked to the jury for being more kind with the young creatives. I tell what I think, that is a virtue and a big limit, as consent gives sense to all that has no sense. I saw some collections Japan inspired, which is the hardest thing to develop in terms of structure and volumes. In this circumstance this inspiration has turned into a Lady Gaga-esque weak interpretation, lacking of any fashion show styling, a leitmotiv of the evening, except few fashion shows. A man from the audience made me compliments for my sagacity. I had to tell that. Why? Because I think if you make believe to a young boy/ girl he/ she has got talent, you destroy him/her and make him/her waste time if he or she has not got it. It results from that a diabolical alchemy, made of  pretentiousness of the people who wants being a fashion designer, but lacks of abilities and a proper background to become it. I focus on the huge responsibility having the fashion schools to train properly the students, a hard work I enjoy every time I am at the Fashion Design Faculty of Iuav University of Venice, headed by Maria Luisa Frisa and at the Rome Costume and Fashion Academy, excellent institution headed by Lupo Lanzara as well as in many fashion schools, institutions there are in Italy and abroad. I care to tell that to improve instead of destroying initiatives like this for giving rise to a real virtuous circuit, made of ideas, energies and facts, considering that as a mere suggestion, given to young people who want working in the realm of fashion. Modesty helps, as well hard-working, but there is not just only the work as fashion designer in the fashion industry. Textile designers, pattern makers are other works being extremely precious. Thus let’s focus on your ability with honesty and modesty to give rise to a successful working path. That is my genuine wish for all the ones who are currently studying and investing time, money and energies on that.

T.A.G.: CREATIVITÀ EMERGENTE, SPORT & DANZA A ROMA

Sono stata recentemente protagonista del simpatico contest di moda T.A.G., evento che si è tenuto presso la Piazza del Campidoglio di Roma, comprensivo di una rassegna di sport e danza. Il contest ha dato la possibilità a giovani studenti neo-diplomati di presentare le loro creazioni e vincere una borsa di studio in denaro pari a 1000 Euro e uno stage presso l’ atelier di Raffaella Curiel. Premi sono stati consegnati a personaggi del mondo dello sport quali la campionessa olimpica di fioretto Valentina Vezzali che è apparsa anche sul palco nelle vesti di giurata, seduta vicino a me, come anche la giornalista sportiva Valeria Ciardiello e la pr Michela Bonafoni unitamente ai ballerini Kledi e Giuseppe Picone, Stefano Dominella, il CEO della casa di moda Gattinoni e la brillante fashion designer Chiara Boni. L’ evento ha incluso l’ esibizione dal vivo di Bussoletti, un cantante emergente, il cui brano “Come scemi”, una canzone sull’ abitudine di fare selfie, divenuta famosa per uno spot di un marchio italiano di gelati. È stato simpatico vedere un progetto fatto per incentivare e sostenere la creatività, lo sport e la danza che c’è nell’ area di Roma, devo però aggiungere altro, alcune riflessioni inerenti iniziative come questa. Oggi “giovani talenti” e “creatività emergente” insieme a “start-up” sono parole che sono diventate slogan vuoti alla stregua del “partito dell’ amore”, vecchio ricordo del Berlusconismo. Ciò vuol essere un doppio avvertimento che riguarda la gente che organizza progetti come questi e le scuole di moda che formano gli studenti affinché si dotino di senso in ciò che fanno e sviluppano. Le mie parole sono strettamente collegate a questa esperienza e a un suo momento ovvero quando mi è stato chiesto di commentare le sfilate. L’ ho fatto, anche se è poi stato chiesto alla giuria di essere più gentile con i giovani creativi. Dico ciò che penso, una virtù che è un grande limite, poiché il consenso dà senso a ciò che non lo ha.. Ho visto alcune collezioni ispirate al Giappone che è la cosa più difficile da sviluppare in termini di struttura e volumi. In questa circostanza tale ispirazione si è trasformata in una debole interpretazione Lady Gaga-esca, priva di alcuno styling della sfilata, un leitmotiv della serata, ad eccezione di alcune sfilate. Un uomo del pubblico mi ha fatto i complimenti per la mia sagacia. Dovevo dire ciò che pensavo. Perchè? Perchè ritengo che se fai credere a un giovane ragazzo/ragazza che abbia talento, lo/la distruggi e gli/le fai perdere tempo ove non ne abbia. Da ciò deriva una diabolica alchimia, fatta di pretenziosità della gente che vuol essere un fashion designer, ma è privo delle capacità e di un background appropriato per diventarlo. Mi soffermo sulla grande responsabilità che hanno le scuole di moda nel formare in modo appropriato gli studenti, un duro lavoro che apprezzo ogni volta che mi trovo alla Facoltà di Design della Moda della Università Iuav di Venezia, guidata da Maria Luisa Frisa e all’ Accademia di Costume e Moda di Roma, eccellente istituzione diretta da Lupo Lanzara come anche in diverse scuole di moda, istituzioni che si trovano in Italia e all’ estero. Mi preoccupo di dire ciò per migliorare e non distruggere iniziative come queste, dando vita a un reale circolo virtuoso, fatto di idee, energie e fatti, considerando ciò un mero monito dato ai giovani che vogliono lavorare nell’ ambito della moda. La modestia aiuta, come anche il lavorare alacremente, ma non esiste soltanto il lavoro di fashion designer nell’ industria della moda. I designers di tessuti, i modellisti sono professionalità altrettanto preziose. Perciò concentratevi sulle vostre capacità con onestà e modestia per dar vita a un felice iter lavorativo. Questo che il mio sincero augurio per tutti coloro che in questo momento stanno studiando e investendo tempo, denaro ed energie in ciò.

That was not the only chance to know more about flowers and plants. In fact the expert Vanda Del Valli talked about the uses of herbs since long times ago, as the Euphorbia, used as remedy against sifilis, the betel berries and the leaves of coca as stimulants and the peyote from which it arises the mescaline, powerful hallucinogenic, evoking the psychedelic culture from Sixties and Seventies, Jim Morrison, his dangerous habits, “The doors of perceptions” and “Heaven and hell” by Aldous Huxley.

Culture as well as fashion suggestions, the creations by Dora Giannetti aka Elisabeth the first, made by joining antique, research cloths to contemporary shapes as well as other unique pieces she made that are under the sign of a timeless elegance. The nice Marina of Verdiana & Beniamina, brand bringing the name of her two daughters, presented a series of dresses and shirts embodying high-end materials, a fine lace and other fun patterns. The brand having its atelier in Milan, in Via Marco Polo 13 also makes works of customization, renewing and reinterpreting the clothes everyone has in its own wardrobe. A smashing series of accessories completed the fashion showcase. I saw again the jewelry designer Simona Rinciari of whose work combines natural elements as berries, the cinnamon sticks, the fava beans and dry leaves to metal and gems, giving rise to unusual creations that make concrete a bright craftsmanship. Jewelry and hats, head accessories hand-made by Patrizia Romiti.

The Friulane slippers by Allagiulia, brand created by Giulia Campeol, were showcased in the area of Dedé maison, the renowned Rome boutique, placed in Via dei Pianellari 21 of smashing Theodora Bugel, focused on the creation and sale of furniture and homewear, which exhibited a catchy selection of objects. It shined the alchemic lightness and charme of scents by Meo Fusciuni aka The cousin of Fabio Quaranta – special individual I was very pleased of meeting and with whom I shared moments of life and Epicurean interludes – who showcased at the School of re-inventors, curated by Clara Tosi Pamphili and Alessio De Navasques, the scents he made as “Notturno” and “Luce” and turned into herbalist who made some magic potions to take care of oneself. An overwhelming experience which has colored of magic, warmth, color, fun and relax.

La cultura della natura unitamente alle suggestioni inerenti la moda e l’ interior design sono stati I protagonisti a Floracult, evento creato da Ilaria Venturini Fendi e curato da Antonella Fornai che si è recentemente tenuto nella campagna romana, a La Storta presso I Casali del Pino come il talk con il fotografo e giornalista Luca Bracali che ha parlato del suo libro “A rose is a rose”. Il libro documenta su foto l’ esperienza di una celebre famiglia di vivaisti da quattro generazioni, la famiglia Barni che ha creato rinomate rose come quelle dedicate a iconici personaggi quali Mariangela Melato, Anna Venturini Fendi e molti altri.

Questa non è stata l’ unica occasione di conoscere meglio fiori e piante. L’ esperta Vanda Del Valli ha infatti parlato degli usi di erbe sin dai tempi più remoti, come l’ Euphorbia, usata come rimedio contro la sifilide, le bacche di betel e le foglie di coca come stimolanti e il peyote da cui deriva la mescaline, potente allucinogeno che evoca la cultura psichedelica degli anni Sessanta e Settanta, Jim Morrison, le sue rischiose abitudini, “Le porte della percezione” e “Paradiso e inferno” di Aldous Huxley.

Cultura come anche suggestioni moda, le creazioni di Dora Giannetti aka Elisabeth the first, da lei realizzate unendo tessuti antichi e di ricerca a forme contemporanee insieme ad altri suoi pezzi unici che sono all’ insegna di un’ eleganza senza tempo. La simpatica Marina di Verdiana & Beniamina, brand che prende il nome dalle sue due figlie, ha presentato una serie di abiti e camicie che racchiudono in sé, materiali di alta qualità, un raffinato pizzo e divertenti motivi. Il marchio, che ha il suo atelier a Milano in Via Marco Polo 13, realizza anche lavori di customizzazione, rinnovando e reinterpretando gli abiti del guardaroba. Ho rivisto la designer di gioielli Simona Rinciari il cui raffinato lavoro combina elementi naturali come le bacche, le stecche di cannella, le fave e le foglie secche al metallo e alle pietre preziose, dando vita a insolite creazioni che concretizzano una brillante artigianalità. Gioielli e cappelli, accessori per capelli, realizzati a mano da Patrizia Romiti.

Ha brillato l’ alchemica leggerezza e il fascino dei profumi di Meo Fusciuni aka il cugino di Fabio Quaranta – speciale individualità che mi ha fatto molto piacere conoscere e con il quale ho condiviso momenti di vita, risate e interludi epicurei – che ha esposto alla Scuola dei reinventori, curate da Clara Tosi Pamphili e Alessio De Navasques, le sue fragranze quali “Notturno” e “Luce” e si è trasformato in erborista, realizzando alcune pozioni magiche per prendersi cura di sé. Un’ esperienza travolgente che è stata colorata da magia, calore, colore, divertimento e relax.

B. M., Beppe Modenese Ministry of Elegance

B. M., Beppe Modenese Ministry of Elegance

It was held in Rome during the latest edition of Altaroma, at Santa Cecilia Conservatory the book launch of “B. M., Beppe Modenese, Ministry of Elegance” (Skira Editions, Euros 49,00), autobiographical work ideated by Luca Stoppini, curated by Roberta Filippini, including photographs and texts by Cesare Cunaccia, Giulia Crivelli, Franca Sozzani, Suzy Menkes and John Fairchild telling about a legendary persona of Italian fashion, Beppe Modenese (Honorary President of National Chamber of Italian Fashion), icon of elegance. A smashing event that joined the music performed by the students of Conservatory and a talk featuring Cesare Cunaccia, Adriana Mulassano, Roberta Filippini, Massimo Di Forti and Beppe Modenese. An intimate conversation about Modenese, started by Cunaccia who asserted: “he is the way we should be and he is really an iconic representation of what is the Italian male elegance”. Roberta Filippini focused on “the real photographs by Luca Stoppini (made without using of Photoshop’s techniques), photographs reading the time” and being included in the book, of whose rise has been “a work which lasted for three years”. The leading character of book told “he made different works, he has been the first one to work in a concept store, ahead of one’s time, in 1951, has been the pr of couturier Jole Veneziani”. His tale has also dressed up with a chronicle of rendezvous as the one with Estée Lauder at the Crespi’s house. An eclectic individual who also has been one of TV’s fashion journalists, working during 1954/1955 in the TV program “Vetrine”. “It’s a generous autobiography” – as Roberta Filippini told – “concerns Florence and Pitti from 1951, talks about Laura Biagiotti (who was in the audience) and becomes a kind of Italian fashion and costume history”. The journalist and professor Adriana Mulassano told about the nice episode which regarded her and Modenese, who were invited at Quirinale and her different choices in terms of elegance they made, Beppe’s perfect and refined look and her unusual choices, more oriented to the trends of time, the Seventies that were really weird to attend at an official circumstance. I like reminding the words said by Massimo Di Forti, concerning the generosity of Beppe Modenese – he considered as “the man who whispered to fashion”- as it is closely connected to humanity, a value, the most precious one, I celebrate: “it needs to give for having”.

Si è tenuto a Roma in occasione dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma, presso il Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia la presentazione del libro di “B. M., Beppe Modenese, Ministry of Elegance” (Edizioni Skira, Euro 49,00), opera autobiografica ideata da Luca Stoppini, curata da Roberta Filippini che include fotografie e testi di Cesare Cunaccia, Giulia Crivelli, Franca Sozzani, Suzy Menkes e John Fairchild e racconta di un leggendario personaggio della moda italiana, Beppe Modenese (Presidente onorario della Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana), icona di eleganza. Un formidabile evento che ha unito la musica eseguita dagli studenti del Conservatorio e un talk di cui sono stati protagonisti Cesare Cunaccia, Adriana Mulassano, Roberta Filippini, Massimo Di Forti e Beppe Modenese. Una conversazione intima su Modenese, avviata da Cunaccia il quale ha affermato: “è come dovremmo essere, è realmente una rappresentazione iconica di quello che è l’ eleganza maschile”. Roberta Filippini si è rivolta alle “foto vere di Luca Stoppini (realizzate senza l’ uso delle tecniche di Photoshop) che leggono il tempo” le quali sono contenute nel libro la cui genesi è stata “un lavoro durato tre anni”. Il protagonista del libro ha raccontato che “ha fatto molti mestieri, è stato il primo a lavorare in un concept store ante litteram nel 1951, è stato il pr della couturier Jole Veneziani”. Il suo racconto è stato condito da una cronaca degli incontri tra cui quello con Estée Lauder a casa Crespi. Una eclettica individualità che è stata anche uno dei primi giornalisti televisivi, lavorando nel 1954/1955 nel programma televisivo “Vetrine”. “É un’ autobiografia generosa” – come Roberta Filippini ha sottolineato – “tocca Firenze e Pitti dal 1951, parla di Laura Biagiotti (presente tra il pubblico) e diventa un po’ la storia della moda e del costume italiano”. La giornalista e docente Adriana Mulassano ha narrato il simpatico episodio che riguardava lei e Modenese, invitati al Quirinale e le diverse scelte di eleganza da loro effettuate, il perfetto e raffinato look di Beppe e le sue insolite scelte più orientate alla moda del momento, gli anni settanta che erano oltremodo bizzarre per prender parte a quella circostanza ufficiale. Mi piace ricordare le parole di Massimo Di Forti sulla generosità di Beppe Modenese – da lui considerato come “l’ uomo che sussurrava alla moda” -, poiché essa è strettamente connessa al nucleo fondante dell’ umanità, un valore, il più importante, che celebro: “per avere bisogna dare”.

The second part the Misa’s International Conference was held in Venice at the Terminal San Basilio, area which hosted also Venezia CulT, the European Saloon of Culture and a display of creativity and craftsmanship in the realm of design and fashion design coming from Italy and Europe. The first part of conference was focused on the “General States of fashion design schools in Italy”, which was moderated by the professor of Milan Bocconi University Elisabetta Merlo and featured the nice Sara Azzone (from Milan IED),  the brilliant Alessandra Vaccari and Maria Bonifacic (from the Iuav University of Venice), Alberto Bonisoli (Piattaforma Sistema Formativo Moda), Giovanni Maria Conti (from the Milan Politecnico), Andrea Lupo Lanzara (from the Rome Costume & Fashion Academy), Linda Loppa (from the Florence Polimoda), Carla Lunghi (from the Milano Fashion Institute), Paolo Meroni (from the Milan Marangoni Institute), Nicoletta Marozzi (from the Milan NABA), Patrizia Ranzo (from the Naples Second University of the Studies), Salvo Testa (from the Milan Bocconi University), Barbara Trebitsch (from the Milan Domus Academy) along with Paola Colaiacomo (from the Misa Directive Council) and Mario Boselli (the President of National Chamber of Italian Fashion). It has been an intense morning, considering the number of panelists and their speeches that depicted a successful consciousness along with a status quo. It was the first time all of the Italian fashion schools were together to dialogue and talk about. Thus it’s a bright evidence of how much it needs the existence of an Italian Association for Fashion Studies in order to act and encourage the communication and synergies between different systems concerning fashion.

It has been the first chapter of a new experience, thus the background brought and showcased by the panelists except some exceptions that confirmed the rule, was focused on the history of the single fashion schools, enriched by a list of numbers, seats and other catchy informations that are easily available on their websites. When Gitte Jonsddatter, the co-founder of MUUSE platform who was sat down close to me, not speaking Italian, asked me what they were telling about, I just answered: “don’t worry if you don’t understand, it’s just a series of websites talking and introducing themselves, slogans, it’s a leitmotiv of Italy to talk by using slogans, inside out the Parliament”. The idea of facing with different experiences, considering a new approach in the teaching and learning – resulting from the needs that arise from contemporary times, new media, their continuous flux of informations giving the chance of being informed quickly and at the same time increasing the lack of attention and superficiality in getting informations and making them leave sediment – was extremely out of context. I am sure the following chapter of this bright experience it will feature that, maybe it will happen during the forthcoming conferences, as it takes time and a hard work to renew and enrich the background of fashion insiders and make them dialogue, considering the contemporary status quo. Thus I said to Mario Lupano during a short break, who has been my spiritual point of reference during these days, celebrating his ideas I share as well as his dandy fashion for expressing them. In fact he emphasized the issue of numbers and students which didn’t prove the work of a school and the ideas connected to that.

The issue was the system of values, ideas connected to the teaching. It’s all about sharing, love or rather passion, the passion to create a project as fashion is a designing work, a connection of different concepts, techniques turning the matter into an object as well as an immaterial value focused on the matter as container of the spirit of folks in a certain time and a place and it lives beyond time. This core was showcased by the two exceptions that confirmed the rule, Alessandra Vaccari along with Maria Bonifacic and Lupo Lanzara, witting the experience of a public fashion school and another being private, the Iuav University of Venice and the Rome Costume and Fashion Academy. Alessandra Vaccari and Maria Bonifacic of whose speech was enriched by an eloquent slide-show, talked about the glocal (global and local) approach of Iuav, celebrating an area, the Veneto, which is a renowned fashion district as well as an international approach in teaching, the internationality of its professors and visiting professors, based on ideas as sharing, encouraging “to reflect in a craftsman way”, the “learned in Italia” or rather “what does in means to make fashion in Italy”, promoting “the localism for being abroad”. I also appreciated the simplicity and modesty of Lupo Lanzara who clearly explained he didn’t documented via slide-show the numbers of enrolled students and the other main features of Academy. It’s a family matter or rather a family management, being this celebrated school founded by her granny, the brilliant and iconic Rosana Pistolese and headed by her mother Fiamma Lanzara, he told focusing on its most peculiar element: “it joins fashion with the costume, the society, meant as culture, as fashion is culture”, element emphasized and developed “by a theoric study in order to give shape to the identity of young people who need to be guided, grown up and trained”. Later Mario Boselli told about the new changes of the Institution he represents telling about the National Chamber of Italian Fashion does a lot for emerging creativity, but it lacks an efficient communication making know what it makes. This has been the answer to my question on the work made by this institution for emerging creativity, which considered also the experience of the travelling show-rooms during the fashion weeks, a project made by the British Fashion Council, as an eventual idea to develop also in Italy.

After the end of first part of talk I visited the Venezia CullT’ s Pavillion along with my friend Silvano Arnoldo (the bright fashion designer of brand of accessories Arnoldo Battois), enjoying the showcase of Origin (passion and beliefs) the innovative fashion trade show event created by Fiera di Vicenza and Not Just a Label which will be held from 8th to 11th May 2014 in Vicenza, the textiles created by the Netherlander Claudy Jongstra, documented in “Wedding”, a little book given to me telling about her passion for felt and her work making concrete a bright craftsmanship celebrating the nature, giving rise to art installation and warm wraps for women. Clothing, textiles as well as furniture featured in this exhibition: the funny chair by Atanor and the catchy furniture by Kitchen, office, bathroom.

The afternoon session of conference on the “Awards system and platforms for talents: experiences comparing with themselves” has brightly moderated under the sign of detail, deepness of contents and lightness by Andrea Batilla, the creator of magazine Pizza Digitale and featured as panelists Antonio Cristaudo (Pitti Italics), Veronica Dall’ Osso (Mittelmoda), Adriano Franchi (Who Is On Next?, format created by Altaroma), Barbara Franchin (ITS, International Talent Support), Gitte Jonsdatter (MUUSE), Sara Maino (Vogue Talents), Giulia Pirovano (National Chamber of Italian Fashion), Cristiano Seganfreddo (Associazione Premio Marzotto of whose awards for the best start-ups will be given today during the event “Wideband, the Orchestra for Italian innovation” which is held in Valdagno, close to Vicenza), Stefan Siegel and Patrizia Calefato. It was an interesting round table which presented different realities, national and transnational ones, talent-scouting awards as ITS and Mittelmoda created in Trieste, WION ideated by Altaroma in collaboration with Vogue Italia, platform joining three important cities connected to fashion, Rome, Florence and Milan, Pitti Italics, format included in the Florentine fashion tradeshow event Pitti, the experience of National Chamber of Italian fashion with its three projects, Nude, Next Generation and Incubator, the work of mainstream media as Vogue Italia, curating Vogue Talents, special supplement of renowned magazine and it’s also an exhibition event presenting the emerging creativity which is usually held during the Milan Fashion Week. It completes this overview on the support of talents the bright work made by MUUSE, connecting directly the creative with the clients, eliminating the necessary contacts with showrooms and buyers, giving to him the opportunity to save costs and giving the chance to the purchaser to create a ready to wear garment having the sartorialism of a haute couture product.

The same mood and also something more features in the platform created by Stefan Siegel, Not Just a Label, featuring an online boutique, being a container of culture and information on fashion, emerging creativity and lifestyle, promoting initiatives under the sign of fashion culture as workshops including the creative it supports and other smashing initiatives. The more recent is Origin(passion and beliefs), a new concept of fashion tradeshow event connecting the creatives with the companies, producers (about which I will tell about more during the forthcoming times). The consciousness arising from this conference is the existence of a lot of work done inside out Italy, but it seems like a constellation of little, big stars shining in the immense sky, where everyone is far away from the other. The issue is in the fact this laudable work has made by systems that are closed, systems that communicate less or nothing between themselves. This was the Cristiano Seganfreddo’s thought – I fully share -, the brilliant director of Associazione Progetto Marzotto which awards with a prize amounting to 800,000 Euros the 19 best Italian start-ups. Considering the criticality of territory, he asserted: “the systems are closed, it lacks a wideband going everywhere, it has to be activated and developed”. That could be a smart way to do more (without being heroes). This new way needs a new way of thinking, as ideas turn into facts, actions, things and situations, thus it’s very important to support initiatives like this conference and the work by Misa, thus let’s join with me, dear FBFers!

LA PRIMA CONFERENZA INTERNAZIONALE DI MISA(3): GLI STATI GENERALI DELLE SCUOLE DI DESIGN DELLA MODA IN ITALIA, I CONCORSI & LE PIATTAFORME PER LA CREATIVITÀ EMERGENTE

La seconda parte della Conferenza Internazionale di Misa si è tenuta a Venezia presso il Terminal San Basilio, area  che ha ospitato anche Venezia CulT, il Salone Europeo della Cultura e una esposizione di creatività ed artigianalità nell’ ambito del design e della moda proveniente dall’ Italia e dall’ Europa. La prima parte della conferenza è stata incentrata sugli “Stati generali delle scuole di design della moda in Italia” che è stata moderata dalla docente della Università Bocconi di Milano Elisabetta Merlo e di cui sono stati protagonisti la simpatica Sara Azzone (dello IED di Milano), la brillante Alessandra Vaccari e Maria Bonifacic (dell’ Università Iuav di Venezia), Alberto Bonisoli (Piattaforma Sistema Formativo Moda), Giovanni Maria Conti (del Politecnico di Milano), Andrea Lupo Lanzara (dell’ Accademia di Costume & Moda di Roma), Linda Loppa (del Polimoda di Firenze), Carla Lunghi (del Milano Fashion Institute), Paolo Meroni (dell’ Istituto Marangoni di Milano), Nicoletta Marozzi (della NABA di Milano), Patrizia Ranzo (della Seconda Università degli Studi di Napoli), Salvo Testa ( della Università Bocconi di Milano), Barbara Trebitsch (della Domus Academy di Milano) insieme a Paola Colaiacomo (del Consiglio Direttivo del Misa) e Mario Boselli (il Presidente della Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana). È stata un’ intensa mattinata, considerando il numero dei relatori e i loro discorsi che hanno dipinto una felice consapevolezza unitamente a uno status quo. Era la prima volta che tutte le scuole di moda italiane erano insieme per dialogare e parlare. Pertanto ciò è una dimostrazione lampante di quanto sia necessaria l’ esistenza di una Associazione Italiana per gli Studi di Moda al fine di agire ed incoraggiare la comunicazione e le sinergie tra diversi sistemi afferenti la moda.

É stato il primo capitolo di una nuova storia, pertanto il background portato con sé ed illustrato dai relatori, eccetto alcune eccezioni che confermavano la regola, era rivolto sulla storia delle single scuole di moda, arricchito da un elenco di numeri, sedi e altre accattivanti informazioni che sono facilmente reperibili sul loro sito web. Quando Gitte Jonsddatter, la co-fondatrice della piattaforma MUUSE che era seduta vicino a me, non parlando italiano, mi ha chiesto di cosa stessero parlando, le ho risposto: “non preoccuparti se non capisci, è soltanto una serie di siti web che parlano e si presentano, una serie di slogans, un leitmotiv dell’ Italia dentro e fuori il Parlamento, parlare avvalendosi di slogans”. L’ idea di confrontarsi con esperienze diverse, prendendo in considerazione un nuovo approccio nell’ insegnamento e nell’ apprendimento – conseguentemente alle esigenze derivanti dalla contemporaneità, dai nuovi media, dal loro continuo flusso di informazioni che offrono la possibilità di essere informati rapidamente e accrescono al tempo stesso la mancanza di attenzione e la superficialità nell’ acquisizione delle informazioni e nella loro sedimentazione – era del tutto fuori contesto. Son certa che il capitolo successivo di questa esperienza avrà questa problematica quale protagonista, forse è più probabile che ciò avverrà durante le prossime conferenze, poiché richiede tempo e un duro lavoro rinnovare, arricchire il background dei fashion insiders e farli dialogare considerando lo status quo contemporaneo. Così dicevo a Mario Lupano durante una breve pausa, a colui che è stato il mio punto di riferimento spirituale in queste giornate, celebrando le sue idee che condivido come anche il suo piglio dandy nell’ esprimerle. Infatti ha sottolineato la questione dei numeri e degli studenti, la quale non provava l’ opera della scuola e le idee sottese ad essa.

La problematica risiedeva nel sistema di valori, idee, legate all’ insegnamento. È una questione di condivisione, amore o meglio passione, la passione per creare un progetto, poiché la moda è un lavoro di progettazione, un’ unione di diversi concetti, tecniche che trasformano la materia in oggetto ed anche un valore immateriale, rivolto alla materia come  involucro dello spirito di un popolo, in un certo tempo e luogo e ciò vive oltre il tempo. Questo nucleo della problematica è stato messo in rilievo dalle due eccezioni che confermavano la regola, Alessandra Vaccari assieme a Maria Bonifacic e Lupo Lanzara, testimoniando l’ esperienza di una scuola di moda pubblica e di un’ altra che è privata, l’ Università Iuav di Venezia e l’ Accademia di Costume e Moda di Roma. Alessandra Vaccari e Maria Bonifacic, il cui intervento era arricchito da un eloquente slide-show, hanno parlato dell’ approccio glocal (globale e locale) della Iuav, celebrando un’ area, il Veneto, rinomato distretto della moda come anche l’ approccio internazionale dell’ insegnamento, l’ internazionalità dei suoi docenti e visiting professors che si basa su idee quali la condivisione, l’ incoraggiamento a “riflettere in modo artigianale”, sul “learned in Italia” o meglio su “ciò che significa fare moda in Italia” e la promozione del “localismo per essere all’ estero”. Ho anche apprezzato la semplicità e modestia di Lupo Lanzara che ha spiegato chiaramente che non avrebbe documentato mediante slide-show i numeri degli studenti iscritti e le altre peculiarità dell’ Accademia. È una questione di famiglia ovvero una gestione familiare, essendo questa celebre scuola stata fondata dalla nonna, la brillante e iconica Rosana Pistolese e guidata dalla madre Fiamma Lanzara, da lui raccontata soffermandosi sull’ elemento più qualificante della scuola: “l’ unione della moda con il costume, inteso come cultura, come società, perché la moda è cultura” enfatizzato e consolidato “in uno studio teorico al fine di dare forma all’ identità dei giovani che hanno bisogno di essere guidati, cresciuti e formati”. A seguire Mario Boselli ha raccontato i nuovi cambiamenti dell’ Istituzione che rappresenta dicendo che la Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana fa tanto per la creatività emergente, ma manca la comunicazione adeguata che renda noto ciò che si fa. Questa è stata la risposta alla mia domanda sul lavoro effettuato da tale Istituzione per sostenere la creatività emergente, che prendeva in considerazione anche l’ esperienza degli show-rooms itineranti durante le fashion weeks, un progetto realizzato dal British Fashion Council, quale eventuale idea da sviluppare anche in Italia.

Subito dopo la conclusione della prima parte della conferenza ho visitato i padiglioni di Venezia CullT con il mio amico Silvano Arnoldo (il brillante fashion designer del brand di accessori Arnoldo Battois) e ho apprezzato l’ esposizione di Origin (passion and beliefs), l’ innovativo evento fieristico creato da Fiera di Vicenza e Not Just a Label che si terrà dall’ 8 all’ 11 maggio 2014 a Vicenza, i tessuti creati dall’ olandese Claudy Jongstra, documentati in “Wedding”, un libretto che mi è stato dato, il quale racconta la sua passione per la lana cotta e il suo lavoro che concretizza una brillante artigianalità, celebra la natura e dà vita a installazioni artistiche e calde stole da donna. Abbigliamento, tessuti e anche componenti d’ arredo sono stati protagonisti dell’ evento espositivo come le divertenti e insolite sedie Atanor e gli accattivanti arredi di Kitchen, office, bathroom.

La sessione pomeridiana della conferenza sul “Sistema dei concorsi e piattaforme per i talenti: esperienze a confronto” è stata magistralmente moderata all’ insegna di dettaglio, profondità di contenuti e leggerezza da Andrea Batilla, il creatore del magazine Pizza Digitale ed ha avuto quali protagonisti nelle vesti di relatori Antonio Cristaudo (Pitti Italics), Veronica Dall’ Osso (Mittelmoda), Adriano Franchi (Who Is On Next?, format creato da Altaroma), Barbara Franchin (ITS, International Talent Support), Gitte Jonsdatter (MUUSE), Sara Maino (Vogue Talents), Giulia Pirovano (Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana), Cristiano Seganfreddo (Associazione Premio Marzotto i cui premi per le migliori start-up sarannno conferiti oggi in occasione dell’ evento “Banda larga, l’ Orchestra dell’ Innovazione italiana”che si terrà a Valdagno, nei dintorni di Vicenza), Stefan Siegel e Patrizia Calefato. È stata una interessante tavola rotonda che ha presentato diverse realtà, nazionali e transnazionali, concorsi di talent-scouting quali ITS e Mittelmoda creati a Trieste, WION consolidato da Altaroma in collaborazione con Vogue Italia, piattaforma che unisce tre importanti città legate alla moda, Roma, Firenze e Milano, Pitti Italics, format incluso nell’ evento fieristico di moda fiorentino Pitti, l’ esperienza della Camera Nazionale della moda italiana con i suoi tre progetti Nude, Next Generation ed Incubator, l’ opera dei media di mainstream come Vogue Italia, che cura Vogue Talents, supplemento speciale del rinomato magazine ed è anche un evento espositivo che presenta la creatività emergente il quale si tiene solitamente durante la fashion week milanese. Completa questa panoramica in materia di supporto dei talenti la brillante opera realizzata da MUUSE che mette direttamente in contatto il creativo con i clienti eliminando i necessitati contatti con gli show-room ed i buyers, offrendogli la possibilità di risparmiare i costi per vendere le proprie collezioni e all’ acquirente di comprare un capo di prêt à porter che abbia la sartorialità di un prodotto di alta moda.

Il medesimo mood e anche qualcosa in più è protagonista della piattaforma creata da Stefan Siegel, Not Just a Label che include una boutique online, è un contenitore di cultura e informazione in materia di moda, creatività emergente e lifestyle, promuove iniziative all’ insegna della cultura della moda quali workshops con i creativi da essa sostenuti ed altre formidabili iniziative. La più recente è Origin( passion and beliefs), un nuovo concetto di evento fieristico di moda che collega i creativi con le aziende, i produttori (riguardo al quale dirò di più nei tempi a venire). La consapevolezza derivante da questa conferenza è l’ esistenza di una gran lavoro fatto dentro e fuori dall’ Italia per sostenere i talenti emergenti, sembra però una costellazione di piccole grandi stelle che splendono nell’ immensità del cielo, in cui ognuna è distante dall’ altra. Il problema sta nel fatto che questo lodevole lavoro è stato effettuato da sistemi che sono chiusi, sistemi che comunicano poco o nulla tra di loro. Questo era il cuore del pensiero – che condivido in pieno – di Cristiano Seganfreddo, il brillante direttore dell’ Associazione Progetto Marzotto che conferisce premi del valore di 800,000 Euro alle migliori 19 start-up italiane. Prendendo in considerazione la criticità del territorio ha affermato che: “i sistemi sono chiusi, manca una banda larga che vada ovunque, va attivata e strutturata”. Ciò potrebbe essere un modo intelligente di fare di più (senza essere eroi). Questa nuova via richiede un nuovo modo di pensare, poiché le idee di trasformano in fatti, azioni, cose e situazioni. Pertanto è oltremodo importante sostenere iniziative come questa conferenza e l’ opera di Misa, quindi unitevi a me cari FBFers!

The empowered femininity has shined and celebrated by the genius Jean Paul Gaultier in the Fall/Winter 2013-2014 haute couture collection he made, presented in Rome during the latest edition of Altaroma, which featured the patterns and sophisticated constructions being a leitmotiv of his work: corsets, stripes, transparencies, fringes evoking art deco suggestions, lace, sequins and fur (who was proud of using, as he asserted during the press conference I attended at the Hotel Flora Baglioni).

The man has appeared in this fashion show, a charming contemporary glampire has “turned into an object”, as the couturier said, emphasizing the force and theatricality of the woman he depicted. A enchanting event as well as a successful chance to meet and enjoy a legendary creative, who was extremely generous and modest during the press conference, also answering to the controversial questions of some Italian journalists (concerning the models and celebrities who would featured in the fashion show and other ones belonging to the same standard).

Instead me, I has been religiously silent, preferring hearing him, who generously spoke Italian and celebrated Rome, its suggestions, the Italian culture which has very relevant in its training as creative and individual (later, at the end of press conference I talked with him about Italian film, who has been very inspiring for him, about Federico Fellini and Luchino Visconti) and hearing  the President of Altaroma Silvia Venturini Fendi who made concrete a laudable work developing contemporary fashion, its culture under the sign of art and internationality.

 

ALTAROMA: LE MERAVIGLIOSE SINUOSITÀ DI JEAN PAUL GAULTIER

L’ emancipata femminilità ha brillato ed è stata celebrata dal geniale Jean Paul Gaultier nella collezione alta moda autunno/inverno 2013-2014 da lui realizzata, presentata a Roma in occasione dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma di cui sono stati protagonisti i motivi e le sofisticate costruzioni che sono un leitmotiv della sua opera: bustier, righe, trasparenze, frange che evocano suggestioni art decò, pizzo, paillettes, trasparenze e pelliccia ( che è stato fiero di usare, amando la pelliccia, come costui ha affermato durante la conferenza stampa a cui ho partecipato presso l’ Hotel Flora Baglioni).

L’ uomo è apparso in questa sfilata, un affascinante vampiro glam contemporaneo, trasformato in oggetto, come couturier ha detto, enfatizzando la forza e teatralità della donna da lui ritratta. Un incantevole evento che è stato anche una felice occasione per conoscere vis à vis e apprezzare un leggendario creativo che è stato estremamente generoso e modesto durante la conferenza stampa, rispondendo anche alle discutibili domande di alcune giornaliste italiane( inerenti le modelle e celebrities che avrebbero partecipato alla sfilata unitamente ad altre della medesima levatura).

Invece religiosamente silente, ho preferito ascoltarlo, il quale ha generosamente parlato in italiano e celebrato Roma, le sue suggestioni, la cultura italiana che ha avuto un ruolo molto significativo nella sua formazione creativa e individuale (successivamente, alla fine della conferenza stampa ho parlato con lui del cinema italiano, che lo ha ispirato molto, di registi quali Federico Fellini e Luchino Visconti) e ascoltando il Presidente di Altaroma Silvia Venturini Fendi la quale ha concretizzato una felice opera che consolida la moda contemporanea, la sua cultura all’ insegna dell’ arte e l’ internazionalità.
