Fashion at IUAV 2015
Speech by Alfonso Saibene Canepa, Venice, 2 July
A day of words, images, projects and ideas about the Italian fashion system was held at the IUAV University in Venice. The degree courses of fashion design and multimedia arts along with the magazine “Studio”, coordinated by Maria Luisa Frisa, organised a 24-hour event called “Italy is in fashion”. It was attended by key stakeholders, from fashion designers to journalists, writers and bloggers, as well as CEOs and scholars, who came together to discuss themes relating to the fashion sector: what is the current situation and what should be done to promote it further? Issues relating to politics, employment, responsibility, aesthetics and economics intertwined, representing common opportunities for growth. Alfonso Saibene Canepa also made a contribution at the event, speaking about the company’s experience in working for more sustainable fashion, thanks to the patented SAVEtheWATER – Kitotex system which applies to the entire clothing textile supply chain.
