The 4-days open event dedicated to the best Italian fashion schools part of PSFM Piattaforma Sistema Formativo Moda seens an intense timetable of fashion shows giving the opportunity to take a closer look to the creations of young talented designers, like those of Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera.

From 26th to 29th October, Milan became the place where the young aspiring designers had finally the opportunity to meet almost all the best Italian fashion schools in one unmissable occasion. I was in Milan to follow this event, speaking with teachers and fashion students, exploring the exhibition between amazing creations and portfolios, seeing the numerous fashion shows of schools. This is the first report of the fashion shows seen at FASHION GRADUATE ITALIA 2018.

The first day at Fashion Graduate Italia, at 11:30 am,  was the time of the ACCADEMIA DI BELLE ARTI DI BRERA  fashion show, even more a pleasant surprise for the high quality of the collection and the research of materials and colors approaching to a sophisticated production without forgetting the creativity of the students:

Cristina Cucinotta recalls the delicate and just whispered Romanticism of Empire line mixed to Roman tunics and Renaissance doublet jacket. It could be a lesson of Fashion History, instead was a a smart way to turn the past into something easily wearable.

The woman of Antonio Corposanto are strong warrior queens coming from the exotic lands of African continent, walking with self-confidence in stunning leather jackets or transparent dresses in which tribal masks becomes precious and evocative embroideries.

The menswear total white collection of Xuyi Zhou is only apparently minimalist. The classic shapes of male wardrobe are influenced by the designer’s origins, but are also enriched by the movement of satin cut-on-the-bias flounces.

Golriz Sadat Hosseyni solves in a brilliant way one of the most tricky problems of fashion design, how to make shantung fabric as something modern. She made using simple shapes, asymmetries and a mix of soft fabrics draped as ancient Greek peplos.

There’s something pleasently disturbing in the graduate collection of Gong Ni, a contamination of genders an cultural heritages which make this kind of creations similar to jazz music, in a continuous jump between asymmetric shapes and contrasting fabrics, hyper-femininity and masculinity.

The really eye-catching prints created by Soofi Nalkiashari are the triumph of acid colors and transform the perfect simmetry of classic architecture into a contemporary digital reality using glitch effects.

The girls proposed by Claudia Sanna seem to come from some small villages of the North France or from Camargue, with their slow paces and delicate femininity which request only minimal shapes and pure, natural fabrics to be emphasized in their simple beauty.
