This is how we feel the green
We are pleased that we are finally able to present the 33 semi-finalists of the 13th edition of FTY‘s competition for young knitwear designers and their creations.
Every year, designers from 14 countries are matched with as many Italian spinners.
This year’s theme is Feel the Green: to highlight the importance of sustainability for the textile sector and, above all, an opportunity to gather and showcase the views of young creators on this issue.
Scrolling down the page you can find the faces of the 33 participants and under each of them, view photos of 2 of their creations.
The five who receive the most votes will automatically be the finalists in this edition:
- their garments will be published in the trend magazine Feel the Yarn in issue 08 – AW 23/24
- and will be on display at Pitti Immagine Filati no. 91 from 29 June to 1 July, where they will be voted on by an international jury.
The first prize winner will receive the opportunity to create a mini-collection made with the free collaboration of the Feel the Yarn spinners and some Italian knitwear manufacturers. Distribution will be handled in collaboration with the Chamber of Showrooms of Milan (CSM).
