Fatto a Mano - The Collaborative Exhibition by Istituto Marangoni Milano & the UEDA College of Fashion is an Ode to Craftsmanship
- 13th Oct 2022
As part of the festivities commemorating the 40th anniversary of the twinning between Milan and Osaka, Japan, the Municipality of Milan has selected Istituto Marangoni Milano and UEDA College of Fashion, a longstanding partner of Istituto Marangoni Milano, to represent the city.
During the visit of the Osaka Delegation, a combined exhibition entitled "Fatto a Mano" was organised and staged at Palazzo Morando by two famous Fashion Schools.
The core of the exhibition's theme was the return to craftsmanship: the combination of creativity and physical ability has always been the basis of "Made in Italy" excellence and the great legacy of Japanese arts and crafts.
In an era where virtual reality is occupying more and more space, the Fashion Schools wanted to highlight how the interest of the younger generations is shifting towards a return to tactile, traditional techniques, folklore, and traditions that have vanished in their hands and are being reinvented, rediscovered with new eyes.
The garments on exhibition exhibited volumes and three-dimensional effects that were incomprehensible and strange, as a consequence of the skilled use of archaic methods.
Lukas Christ, Hibiki Harasawa, Ayuka Hayashi, Reika Hayashi, Yayoi Imamura, Francesco Imberti, Jaehee Koo, and Lorenzo Sala are among the great designers whose collections have been shown in this exceptional site in the centre of the Fashion District.
