The Final Capsule collections of the 13 international students of the Master are the protagonists of the fashion show. The project, launched with its first edition in 2016 and promoted by the Pitti Immagine Discovery Foundation, aims to enhance the talent of young creatives and the excellence of knitwear. A significant moment of dialogue and exchange between the greatest Italian companies, buyers and design offices of the most prestigious fashion houses, the press, and young international creatives. The students of CKD Master will present their Capsule Collections in knitwear, realized in partnership with the best companies and laboratories that represent Italian excellence in this field.
Thus, ACM and Modateca Deanna are committed not only to supporting the voice of their young creative minds but also to valorizing the Made in Italy Supply Chain and all the companies that promote our unique Italian "know-how", between technology, craftsmanship, and expertise.
A unique opportunity within the educational world, the one that our students have to present their collections in the most recognized fair of the sector, Pitti Filati, and in front of important professionals—states Andrea Lupo Lanzara and Furio Francini, respectively President and CEO of Accademia Costume & Moda—all this becomes possible thanks to the synergy and generosity of Pitti Immagine Discovery. An apotheosis of the uniqueness and peculiarity of every talent that animates the laboratories of Modateca Deanna,our partner in this incredible adventure. A project of history, dedication, and creativity that evolves more and more, year after year, thanks to the invaluable partnership with the most prestigious fashion houses and manufacturing knitwear companies."
