From October 17th to 26th Venice hosts the Venice Fashion week: 10 days of events and initiatives dedicated to sustainable fashion and to local and international producers. At the center of the program there will be fashion shows but also high quality craftsmanship and emerging designers. Each event will take place in a different setting: palaces, art galleries and other evocative places of Venice, full of history and culture.
The theme of sustainability is important for the Italian brands participating in Venice Fashion Week: Alberta Ferretti presents the Love Me capsule collection of organic cotton t-shirts and recycled cashmere sweaters, created in collaboration with Eco-Age, with an event on Thursday 24 October in the Spazio A boutique in Piazza San Marco.
Among the Venetian designers on the calendar: the very young Gianluca Regazzo, who will present a show of his handmade leather, mosaic and glass creations in the gallery-atelier Lunardelli Venezia on Friday 18 October; the designer Antonia Sautter, creator of the dreamlike Ballo del Doge, with the QueensEssential fashion show scheduled for Thursday 24 October at the Hotel Ca ’Sagredo.
