Feel the Yarn, the only International contest wholly devoted to discover and support aspiring knitwear designers has arrived at its X edition.
Since 2010, more than 200 students of 20 top International fashion schools from more than10 Countries have challenged each other with creativity and technics. Different stories, different nationalities, a unique goal: to work and emerge in the knitwear fashion business.
For this remarkable anniversary, Consorzio Promozione Filati (CPF) and Pitti Immagine, will select the 27 finalists evaluating motivations, portfolios, sketches and ideas interpreting the 2019’s theme: Co-Creation.
These top students will be subsequently coupled with the CPF members to use their fancy yarns and realise 2 knitted outfits (man and woman) which will be shown and voted during the fair in Florence (June 25-27, 2019).
As usual, the fair’s visitors together with an International jury, composed of journalists, designers and knitwear experts, will vote the best outfit which will be awarded during the final day of the show.
“FEEL THE YARN – The X Contest” will be also enriched by a “fashion show” with the outfits of the students, which will be held during the evening of the first day of Pitti Immagine Filati n. 85 (26-28 June, 2019).
