The opening ceremony of the 58th edition of Filo on “Sustainability and creativity: from new textiles to new fashion” takes place on Wednesday 14 September 2022, at 10.30, in the Networking Area of Filo in Allianz MiCo-Milan (via Gattamelata 5).
“Sustainability and creativity: from new textiles to new fashion”: the title encompasses various issues, on which Filo has been committed for some time: first of all, sustainability but also a new vision of the textile-fashion system, which has at its core manufacturing and a supply chain capable of building a true and productive dialogue among the different steps. This enhances the intrinsic value of a centuries-old textile tradition, to be combined, however, with the most innovative research and attention to sustainability.
After the speeches by Paolo Monfermoso (Responsible of Filo), Pier Francesco Corcione (President of ITS-TAM Biella) and Elena Chiorino (Councilor for Education, Work, Vocational Training, Right to University Study of the Piedmont Region), the ceremony continues with the round table moderated by the journalist Elisabetta Invernici. The debate involves stylists from different generations, who will propose their vision of fashion to the public, also in the light of the technical developments obtained from research on materials and the necessary ever closer collaboration with textile manufacturers.
To follow, the press conference of the Filo’s exclusive show “Estetica ’70. Il genio di Brunetta dialoga con la creatività di Franco”.
