Stefanel Group, one of the most important fashion company where knitwear products are significantly listed in its catalogue, is offering a stage opportunity to the student who will be ranked as second at the Feel the Yarn contest.
Feel the Yarn 2015 contest is supported and sponsored both by the mills you can find listed in this post and by other organizations, such as CELC Masters of Linen, the European Confederation of Linen and Hemp which promotes products made using European linen and certified Masters of Linen 100% Made in Europe.
Feel the Yarn allows students coming from the most famous international fashion schools to test their skills as well to promote them. At the same time the contest allows the mills to meet young knitwear designers and to establish new collaborations.
I already wrote about this year contest theme: Feel the Yarn and the students involved in the project will focus their skills on ‘Dual: Contrast or Fusion’. Now I’m happy to spread the word about the matches between students and mills.
Consorzio Promozione Filati and Pitti Immagine, together with the most important Italian yarn industries, launch the 6th edition of Feel the Yarn, the contest dedicated to knitwear designers.
Last year I just wrote the following post concerning ITS (International Talent Support). This year, I did something more and I went to Trieste myself, in order to take part in the emotion and joy of 40 young designers.
Last Friday at Pitti Filati the award ceremony of this year contest took place: Matilda Norberg, one of the students coming from the Royal College of Art in London, won the competition.
For the fifth year in a raw, Toscana Promozione, Pitti Immagine, Consorzio Promozione Filati and the most important italian yarn producers will promote in 2014 a contest for knitwear designers.
Industria Italiana Filati was among the companies which took part at the Feel the Yarn project. In this edition the two students who represented the company were Carolina Russo and Giulia Astolfi.
Last Friday was a great day for Feel the Yarn: during Pitti Filati the award ceremony of this year contest took place. As already explained by Ornella Bignami, tutor and coordinator of the project, the theme of the competition was ‘Pull Lovers’.
