Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2014: from mere products to NICE experiences!



Copenhagen Fashion Summit has come to an end also this year with great results in terms of networking, new ideas and possible solutions to make the fashion industry more sustainable.

The 3-day event for the participating students started with the workshops of Youth Fashion Summit on April 22-23 2014. 

The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts - The School of Design, KEA - Copenhagen School of Design & Technology and the Danish Fashion Institute gave us a warm welcome.

Dilys Williams, Director of Centre for Sustainable Fashion at London College of Fashion, managed brilliantly the team of facilitators throughout the different workshops aiming at defining the challenges, solutions, pitfalls, stakeholder path etc..etc...



Of course Milano Fashion Institute was there as well!


The weather in Copenhagen was great, so during the breaks you could see the more than 100 international students from more than 20 design and business schools networking in the garden.


2 days of intense work brought to very interesting "demands" to the fashion industry.


"We demand nothing but state reality: we give 2 get"

"We demand decision makers to re-think the role of a fashion designer"

"We demand you to be brave and stop business secrecy"

"We demand world leaders to help us build a critical society"

"We demand the industry to re-organize into collaborating competence clusters"

"We demand the industry, government and civil society to create a fashion democracy"

"We demand the fashion industry to enable us wearing experiences instead of garments"

The Green Closet is SUPER!

  

Tra gli eventi speciali del salone SUPER* torna The Green Closet, la sezione “green” dedicata ai marchi e agli stilisti di moda e accessori eco-sostenibili dal Regno Unito.

Il progetto, patrocinato da UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) e dal Consolato Generale Britannico di Milano, accoglie cinque marchi britannici di moda e accessori eco-sostenibili individuati e selezionati dalla Responsabile Moda e Design di UKTI Italia Marina Iremonger, per proporre ai buyer italiani e internazionali collezioni di stilisti emergenti che si differenziano non solo per il contenuto stilistico ma anche per l’etica del lavoro e il rispetto per l’ambiente.

Ecco i marchi presenti:
Arianna Cerrito, www.ariannacerrito.com
Eden Diodati, www.edendiodati.com
Judy R Clark, www.judyrclark.com

In questa edizione Bio-Fashion ha apprezzato particolarmente lo stile di Arianna Cerrito (stilista italiana d’origine ma inglese d’adozione) a cui è dedicato questo post.


La collezione è composta da abiti con ricami fatti a mano su fibre naturali o in tessuti riciclati, abbinati in un “dialogo” con gioielli in metalli riciclati.


Il taglio è sartoriale ed impeccabile, con un gioco di assenza/presenza nell’accostamento tra abiti e gioielli, intagli laser, stampe esclusive e ricami fatti a mano su fibre naturali, leggere e preziose. 


A questo si aggiungono lavorazioni artigianali e tridimensionali “Made in Italy”.


 A coronamento di un percorso progettuale e produttivo rivolto a una femminilità fashion-conscious e cosmopolita il marchio si impegna ad utilizzare fibre naturali e/o riciclate e metalli riciclati. 


 Le sete sono tinte al vegetale, le stampe in seta sono rigorosamente Made in Italy. Il poliestere leggero e morbido, come le sete utilizzate dal brand, è certificato 100% riciclato. 
 A questo si aggiungono le manifatture sartoriali e artigianali messe a punto per ogni capo e l’utilizzo di professionisti UK ed italiani per la realizzazione artigianale dei gioielli.


*SUPER è un progetto di Pitti Immagine Fiera Milano, realizzato in collaborazione con l’Assessorato alle Politiche del Lavoro, Ricerca e Università, Moda e Design con CityLife.




Among its special events SUPER*  introduces The Green Closet, the "green" section dedicated to the eco-friendly brands, fashion designers and jewelry designers from the UK.
The project, sponsored by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and the British General Consulate in Milan, will hosts five British brands offering eco-friendly fashion and accessories identified and selected by the Head of Fashion and Design UKTI Italy Marina Iremonger, to propose to the Italian buyers and international collections of emerging designers, which differ not only for style but also the content for the ethics and respect for the environment.

Here are the brands:
Arianna Cerrito, www.ariannacerrito.com
Eden Diodati, www.edendiodati.com
Judy R Clark, www.judyrclark.com
Pachacuti, www.pachacuti.co.uk

In this edition of Bio-Fashion has particularly enjoyed the style of Arianna Cerrito (designer of Italian origin but English by adoption).

Pure expression of an eye-catching and tactile aesthetic vision, the collection unfolds among sartorial and impeccable cuts, exclusive prints, layered as well as handcrafted embroideries on airy, precious and natural fibers. The collection is enriched by artisanal and three-dimensional shapes strictly Made-in-Italy. Vivid and strong colors juxtaposing contemporary and romantic jewels and garments. 
The brand uses - whenever possible - natural/recycled fibers and metals in line with a design and production approach aimed to a fashion-conscious and cosmopolitan audience. Silks are 100% vegetable dyed; silk prints (in the distinctive and exclusive designer's patterns) are made in Italy. Polyester is certified to be 100% recycled. Additionally the label make use of outstanding artisanal and sartorial skills with all garments made in Italy and all jewelry being bend-crafted both using Italian and Uk artisanal skills and professionals.
