Emerging designers: the new fashion names sign the latest trends and parade under the lights of the most important catwalks. Alongside the Bigs of the fashion system, thanks to the support of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion, young emerging designers have conquered with talent a place in the Milan Fashion Week calendar, launching their fashion message with style. But let’s find out more about who they are and what … they create!
LUCIO VANOTTI: chosen by King Giorgio as a talent to focus on and run at the MFW man January 2016, born in Bergamo Lucio Vanotti graduated from the Istituto Marangoni in Milan. The purism of the Radical Architecture mixes with it the poetry of fashion for a minimal aesthetic code, no gender and sartorial. In his latest FW 2018-19 collection the dress is deconstructed, reduced to the essence, rediscovered. Square jackets are mixed with soft trousers, the drawstrings are the details of technical jackets, the workwear becomes metropolitan.
CHRISTIAN PELLIZZARI: born in 1981 in Treviso, he studied in Florence at Polimoda. From Tonello to the Parisian brands until the launch of the brand of the same name, Christian challenges the rules of the convention by combining sophisticated fabrics and new forms to different occasions of use. Baroque becomes contemporary, glamor innovation. Sequins, metallic effects, prints and patterns are the ingredients of his latest show. Dressed in ruches, flounces and light textures like chiffon give life to a light femininity. To a romantic woman.
FRANCESCA LIBERATORE: born in Rome in 1983, she graduated in Fashion Womanswear at Central Saint Martin in London. After working in renowned maison like Viktor & Rolf in Amsterdam or Jean Paul Gautier in Paris, she wins with her first capsule Who Is On Next? 2009. The enfant prodige, so called by the “biggest” in the sector, exhibits in museums and prestigious locations, as well as teaching in renowned schools. After having presented her collections in New York, this February returned to tread the Milan catwalks bringing with them witnesses of the activities carried out with UNIDO. Inspired by her trip to Pakistan and the Middle East, the clothes and tunics have a modern and clean profile, the outerwear wink at the masculine wardrobe, balanced on flowing skirts, for a woman eager for femininity. Blue, green, gray and black soften with embroidery and precious gold. The beauty of today.
BROGNANO: after a training course at Istituto Marangoni, Nicola Brognano launched his brand in 2015. Fascinated by the ’70s and 90s photography, two ubiquitous elements in his collections, wins Who Is On Next? 2016. Already beloved by the stars, he is one of the most fashionable emerging designers of the moment. His sportychic style is also successfully confirmed in MFW 2018, enhanced by overlapping fabrics and eccentric and extremely feminine details.
ALBERTO ZAMBELLI: a decorative minimalist. This is how we could describe this new brand founded in 2014 and already protagonist of important events in the sector and renowned fashion week, from Shanghai to Beijing, from Dubai to Milan. Driven by a soul couture, Alberto Zambelli creates clean and dry shapes enriched by refined details and a maniacal care for fabrics and their experiments. And even in the latest collection the sophisticated and entirely Made in Italy elegance has not been disowned. The embrace has become fashionable and the enveloped intimacy of this gesture has moved on cloth projects that continue to make us dream. Wrapping outerwear, origami dresses, bright embroidery, figures and graphics recount the life of a designer, one of the most successful emerging designers, who moves himself and his art between East and West.
MARCO DE VINCENZO: born in Messina in ’78, trained at the IED in Rome, Marco de Vincenzo debuts with his line in 2009 in Paris during the week of haute couture. He has worked as an accessory designer for Fendi, a house to which he is still tied up, he was the winner of Who Is on next? and is today one of the most promising emerging designers. His are cloth frames made of geometric prints and contrasting colors. The memories of ’70 relive in the latest collection for the MFW of February 2018 inspired by the disconnection and the TV off of those nostalgic years. Eco fur, pretty dresses in rainbow and sparkling tones, pants that widen at the bottom in the typical timeless paw. The contemporary retro. The new fashion lives here, among our emerging designers.
