IED in Russia with a fashion show and a workshop on March 17!

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design thanks to invitation of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia and Fashion Futurum International Сonference will be present in Russia with a fashion show and a workshop on March 17, 2017 at the MANEGE of Moscow.

14.30pm – CIAO it’s me! Graduate Fashion Show

18.00pm – Italian Young Designers Say CIAO! to the Fashion System Workshop

An informal conversation between Professor Olivia Spinelli, Fashion Coordinator at IED Moda Lab, and IED graduates, young fashion designers and authentic Made in Italy creatives Giorgia Laureti THE BODY AS MEDIUM and Luciano Parisi THE SIGN.

Giorgia’s priority is the identity and flexibility of the garment. By exploring the possibilities of different types of leather (which she carefully selects one by one), she creates unique pieces which reflect both a strong custom oriented sensibility and the designer’s fleeting sensations when she creates. The result are highly experimental clothes which change identity depending on the person that is wearing them, giving new life to the original skin they come from.

Luciano’s project consciously uses design as a true weapon against the stiff, empty rituals of today’s fashion system. His street inspired garments are strongly rooted into the habits, colours and shapes of contemporary subcultures and they willingly stay within this articulate, pluralistic cauldron, both representing the fast moving, chaotic evolution of today’s aesthetics and defying the limits imposed by the current marketing and communication channels. His fashion is the proper visual companion of a true social manifesto aimed at meeting the needs of the younger generation, starting the first revolution of the 21st century.

At the end of the workshop you can have a personal interview with Olga Myelkova, IED Group Area Manager, asking questions about the profession of designer in Italy, Spain and Brazil and clarifying the admission process. You can bring your portfolio for evaluation and be guided in choosing your academic path discussing job opportunities.
