Fashion at IUAV 2017

The Innocence of the Wall

MA Graduation Show – FROW - Backstage

The BA and MA Graduation Show entitled; The Innocence of the Wall, in the Fashion Design department of IUAV University of Venice celebrates the end of the Academic Year. Organized in the area of the Maritime Station at San Basilio, with the spectacular backdrop of the Canale della Giudecca the  fashion show featured the best collections of clothes and accessories by the graduating students from the BA and MA programs in Fashion Design, coordinated by designers Veronika Allmayer-Beck, Arthur Arbesser, Fabio Quaranta. The show was curated by Mario Lupano and Cristina Zamagni and choreographed by Gina Monaco

 

The innocence of the wall is an statement, a statement that this year introduces Fashion at IUAV. It's not a sticky label to attract attention, but it's the story of a way of being, working, studying, watching the world.”
Maria Luisa Frisa
For three years the students have been working in two red brick warehouses in front of the Canale della Giudecca, a panoramic view that embraces a non-stereotypical Venice, but rather a Venice that holds together different souls - the one crystallized in the past and the one that wants to challenge the future - in which, the university is set up as a kind of hinged territory that expresses, the complexity of the present.  The view from warehouses, looks out onto the canale, which defines the port area with all its functions, it has become for the students a metaphor of a way of being; an attitude, that sees within the boundaries, not a limit or a closure, but rather assumes it as a place that can relate to differences, to understand diversity - permanent questions. The introduction of the title The Innocence of the Wall, borrowed from Simone Gobbo's thesis in Architecture and Design at the University of Genoa, seemed to be the best way for the community of teachers and students, to reveal a way of being inside things, both fragile and stubborn.

Giudetta De Pretis – Tznuit
Tzniut, in Hebrew means "modesty", it is the privacy of a lifestyle that translates into the clothing of orthodox Jews. From my memories at the Jewish school, emerges figures of women and girls, covering stockings, knees and elbows and with wigs. Tzniut recounts these feelings, intimacy of memories, and Jewish rules. The black dress, the white shirt and the waistcoat, borrowed from the orthodox male wardrobe, become the basis for shaping new shapes.

Pino Musolino e Signora, Fabio Marzari

In theme with the title of the show Pino Mussolino, president of the Port of Venice and Chioggia, points out that walls, nets or any other barrier are innocent on their own, that is, that they do not have a positive or negative connotation, it all depends on how you look at them.

Anahita Matin – 3434 Km
3434 km is the distance between Tehran and Venice. The project is born from the experience of a group of friends moving from one city to another in search of a personal evolution. Each outfit is designed for the person wearing it and wants to represent its identity. Men's classic fabrics, linked to a Western fashion, combine with Chador and Kapanak, embroideries and volumes, telling memories, maladies, traces and experiences.”

Anna Lena Biotti – Learning From Riviera

A Hawaiian bride falls in love with an Italian surfer and follows him by searching for his lost paradise among the tropics. A wedding in pin-stripes and a white dress, is hybridized by a surfing wetsuit, a coupling that re-emerges in every outfit of the collection; determining the choice of materials and abstraction from their common use: everything that is technical is paired with classical and everything that has not yet been washed can be thrown into water, wringing, dyeing and re-dying, discoloring and tearing.
Starting from surfwear, a long series of bootleg prints, fictitious and semi-ironic brands describe the Adriatic Riviera and its beaches, from the Lido of Venice to the hamlets of Rimini.”

Annalisa Cescon – Signora Mia
  My lady is a vision. The ironic vision of the Italian province and its elegant ladies in suits. The project is made up of eight episodes that correspond to eight or nearly to, eight suits. Each one investigates a stereotype, a recurring theme, and a character. There is the delicate lady who is lost in the floral upholstery of her living room, with flowers that are actually buds of language and smirks, and there is a showy lady in printed houndstooth. The furred overwhelming lady whose fake fur is made-up by assembling many cymoses. The cat loving lady, confused by the jacquard pattern of her knitwear set. The most discreet lady with her pleated denim skirt. The lady in yellow with the fake checkered suit and the animal print lady. Finally the jeweled lady in a woolen suit.”

Giulia Stefanini – Innesti
“Venice, Autumn 2015, time lost while waiting for a vaporetto. Everything is gray except for the unremitting movement of algae, brilliant green filaments covering the underwater surfaces. The project starts from here: a continuous evolution that finds its focus in textile experimentation. Elements that arise directly in the machine are multiplied by the use of different yarns such as mohair and nylon that go to wrap around raw cotton cloth. Canvas and technical fabrics re-create the architectural and structural appearance. Clutches of fabrics ennoble and connects discarded items such as sheepskin and men's shirts.”

Valentina Olivetti - Le Temps Revient

“A flower, an upholstery, a dress, an armchair. I focused my attention on details of black and white photographs and I inserted color, so much color, to tell story in a collection. The men’s waistcoat is integrated into a female dress. A boxer short is decorated with a ruffle around the waist. A long coat contrasts with the lightness of the cropped top and the under-skirt. The fabrics emphasize the abundance of colors and prints, ranging from quilted velvet, to padded, cotton jersey, silk voile, wavy pleats, Alcantara, wool blends and cashmere.”
