From Woodstock to Glam Rock: the graduate fashion show of Istituto di Moda Burgo 2019




In the 50th anniversary of the great concert of Woodstock, the students of Istituto di Moda Burgo, coming from all over the world, for their 2019 graduate fashion show take inspiration from the fabulous 70s, from the freedom of hippie style to the flashy Glam Rock, winking also to the Coachella's boho-chic fashion icons.


There's a desire for freedom in the air. So the young students of ISTITUTO DI MODA BURGO captured the spirit of rebellion against any constrictions typical of the Seventies and transformed it into a sophisticated mood, creating a very multi-faceted fashion show able to bring us back in the past and at the same time by staying well-anchored to modernity.

The spring/summer graduate collection "That 70's sound" presented by the famous fashion school last 27th June was an hymn to freedom, but also the perfect excuse to bring on catwalk the elegant outfits created by the 31 students of the fashion design and tailoring courses from the various headquarters widespread all over the world. 

So on catwalk we've seen the creations of students from the fashion schools of Italy (Milan, Rome, Lecce, Reggio Calabria, Verona, Ragusa, Pescara and Nuoro), but also from Switzerland, Brazil, Armenia, Qatar, Malaysia and Indonesia.

The 70s, so rich of inspirative sources, were interepreted with three micro trends, through which the students had the possibility to better explain their concepts and develop their creativity: Woodstock Revival, Music Festival and 70s Icons.

More than a concert, it was a real phenomenon, that the IMB's students celebrates interpreting the rebellion of those young people with a pinch of sophistication.
