IED participates in the 7th edition of Fashion Graduates Italia

IED participates in the seventh edition of Fashion Graduates Italia. This Fashion Week – open to the public – is promoted by the Association Piattaforma Sistema Formativo Moda and dedicated to the best students graduating from Italian fashion schools. Three days of fashion shows, exhibitions, talks and workshops to showcase students’ creativity as well as discuss fashion trends.
From 24 to 26 October at Base Milano, Fashion Graduate Italia | Come Up! will be an invitation, an incentive to get out and emerge by suggesting an idea, an exhortation to do – instead of standing still.
The 2021 edition will have a hybrid format: both physical and digital. Furthermore, it will be enriched by a storytelling (through social media) about students’ lives and experiences at school.
Representing IED are eight students selected from the IED Italia Fashion Design courses: Chiara Autiero, Paolo Belleri, Dara Silva Bulleri, Andrea De Simone, Yoana Dimitrova, Alessia Giacchetta, Valeria Nicoletti and Gaia Romoli will present their capsule collections at a fashion show on Sunday 24 October at 3 pm.
The fashion show can be attended only by invitation, also in light of the restrictions in place due to Covid- 19, and will be streamed on
Moreover, on Monday 25 October at 9.00 am, IED will organise a workshop for high school students
entitled Look Out!. During this event, 2 looks (dedicated to 4 pop culture role models) will be created – in just 1 hour’s time – using the collage technique on paper and fabric.
For the first year, the communication of the event was supported by a digital storytelling project that (in
addition to the behind the scenes) talks about the life and experiences of fashion students through the
social channels of Fashion Graduates Italia and the participating schools.
The Making of for IED will be narrated by the video contributions of Paolo Belleri, Evelyn Bressan,
Francesca Caranzano, Alessia Giacchetta and Gaetano Stea.
