“Euritmia del Sussurro” – IED Graduate Fashion Show 2019
The modernist setting of Palazzo Castiglioni hosted IED Graduates Fashion Show 2019, a new performative installation – as a part of Milano Moda Uomo – taking shape from the “whisper”, intended as a pneuma, a generator of movement.
On June 16th Euritmia del Sussurro presented the collections of IED Milano best thirteen graduates in Fashion Design, Shoes and Accessories Design, Jewelry Design in the academic year 2018/19.
The thesis projects of these students compose the entire story: a plurality of visions, representations of the world and aesthetic ideals. At the base, a single working method, strongly anchored in the tradition of Italian design: a constant combination of creativity and technical skills that leads IED designers to become authors of the entire collection, from the initial creative idea to the realization of individual clothes and accessories.
The result is the thirteen stories that Euritmia del Sussurro presented at Palazzo Castiglioni: self-portraits, reflections on body, nature, art, united by a renewed, fluid and lucid interpretation of the postmodern canon.
