Manufacturing Technologies for Fashion, Art and Design
E Wha Lim, a Corean Royal College of Art student, has developed “La Religieuse” concept. Between religion and creativity, a collection inspired by the dichotomy between monastic spirituality and provocative alter egos. The project traces the inner journey of a young woman who tries to free herself from limits imposed by rules and the expectations of religion and society. It is respect for traditions interpreted through the eyes of modernity. E Wha Lim collaborated with Bond Factory manufacturing, Clouds knitting company, Filpucci and Millefili yarns company and L’Officina leather company.
Matilda Norberg, a Swedish Royal College of Art student, who won the 2014 edition of Feel the Yarn competition, has developed the “Earth’s Crust” concept. The structure of the knit suggests new forms, silhouettes and innovative garment making methods. The project is the earth’s crust expressed through knitwear, with its movements, tensions and dialogues between the different materials within. Matilda Norberg collaborated with Bond Factory manufacturing, Mely’s knitting company, Cittadini nets company, Filpucci and Millefili yarns company.
Christine Overbeck, a German designer, who is attending a Master in design at University of Applied Arts of Lucerne since 2013, has developed: “Drahdi” concept. She draws inspiration from patterns embroidered on Bavarian stockings. The project explores the different construction techniques, studying new ways to combine traditional working methods with the most innovative technology. A journey that goes beyond aesthetic of embroidery to explore the international cultural heritage associated with geometries. Christine Overbeck collaborated with Bond Factory manufacturing, Bruno Atelier knitting company and Filpucci yarns company.

From January 28th to 30th 2015 Pitti Immagine Filati 76 has featured the second edition of MODA FUTURIBILE project, which focuses on the subject of innovation, a fundamental aspect of future fashion. The project, curated by Dyloan Studio, sets out to enhance high-end design in the fashion system through the development of a series of products, expression of the know-how and design synergies created between companies and designers.
The focus on innovation becomes both a motivation and a link between the creativity of the three young designers and the experience of the Italian manufacturing excellence, a mutual exchange of information that is transformed into an opportunity for growth and collaboration.
