My first Pitti (Filati)

July 10, 2012

It has been my first Pitti. I had great expectations and I really wanted to explore this event. My opportunity to visit Pitti Filati has been strictly associated with the participation of Feel the Yarn to the fair.

Arriving at La Fortezza da Basso, where Pitti is located, this was the first installation I could see:

I went to the Feel the Yarn stand to enjoy the beauty of the students’ creations: I already saw them in the pictures published on Facebook, but I have to admit that watching them directly was really surprising. All the clothes have been made very professionally and, above all, all of them were wereable.

If I can express my opinion the creation I loved the most is this one:


Well, it’s a dress I would buy in shops.

Great emotions during the award ceremony: Xiao Li, the student from the Royal College of Art, won the contest with her awesome creations made using the yarn from the Pinori Filati company.
