Two days passed among factories, raw materials and industrial processing in Prato, the biggest textil cluster in Europe.
The aspiring knitwear designers have moved their first steps in knitwear fashion starting from the very beginning till the finished jersey fabric.
Fibers sorting and mixing, thread twisting, yarns dyeing and, eventually, very special finishing operations are no more just theory or school labs remembrances for them.
All these operations are concentrated in the Prato cluster for providing thousands of inspirational new materials for knitwear designers all over the world.
Let’s hope this walk will be a good inspiration also for their participation in the FTY 2012 contest.
Follow the FTY thread and you’ll see …….
