The Piazza di Santa Maria Novella in Florence was the setting for Polimoda’s Art Thou, Final Graduation Show, an event-installation dedicated to the school’s best creative talents, marking the return of the fashion shows in presence celebrating Pitti Uomo #100.
The catwalk, winding around a secret garden with sculptures by British artist Rob Mulholland, was accompanied by a symphony orchestra. The event showcased twenty-seven young designers, the future promises of a sector that today more than ever requires innovation and creativity. For the first time in the school’s thirty-five years, in addition to the best students of the fourth and final year of the Fashion Design course, the best students of the Fashion Design Management courses and the Masters in Collection Design and Knitwear Design also participated in the Final Graduation Show. They were selected by the school’s faculty together with Massimiliano Giornetti, Director of Polimoda and Caroline Issa, CEO and Fashion Director of Tank magazine and mentor of the Fashion Design course.
