Italian fashion looks forward and thanks to the 3-days events of Altaroma, this time in a totally digital edition, dozens of young fashion design students had the opportunity to show their final works giving life to captivating short movies and being on runway despite all the difficulties of the moment. Because the future is in their hands and the show must always go on!

During the three days of the event, among virtual cattwalks and exhibitions, 6 important Italian academies and fashion schools presented the graduate collections of their students involving the public connected online with the Altaroma‘s platform through many interesting movies and a fashion show. Also if differently from the previous editions in which we had the possibility to see live the shows and speak with the designers, this was anyway a very special occasion for many new talents.


The virtual set was that created by the Altaroma’s organization in Cinecittà in Rome, in the same big studios where in the past great masters gave life to great pages of the best Italian and interantional Cinema. On catwalk were as usual beautiful models, ready to show for the first time the creations of the designers. In the backstage there was always the same excitement among the students and the school’s team.

Not afraid by the lack of public and mass media, anyway connected by remote for following the event, the young students of Accademia Koefia looked to the future and to Futurism with their graduate collective collection entitled “Asymmetries of the Time”, presenting a really intense show and surprised for the even more strong impact of the designers’ creations. Today, in this very difficult and uncertain situation we’re living, courage is needed and Koefia took the risk for enhancing the final works of their students.

The incredible refinery of the the tailoring is the trademark of the fashion school, as well as the sophisticated research of unexpected materials and aesthetic solutions as well as for the attentive care for sartorial details. This time, helped also by innovative 3d modelling techniques in the projecting of the collection, the students arrived to a very high level of quality, reaching the excellence not only in terms of tailoring but also speaking about the strong image they gave to their models.

They surprised us with incredibly beautiful flared pants and hyper-cool jumpsuits so wide to seem dresses, but especially for the bold vision connectect with the long dresses, the many prints and embroideries. Their graduate fashion show could have this motto: Remember the tradition, forget the tradition!

At Altaroma, MAM Maiani Accademia Moda presented the fashion movie “Applausi”, dedicated to the Italian theaters closed by pandemic and to the people working in the field of fashion and show business forced to stay at home. The short film is almost a theatrical piéce thought for enhancing the final works of the Maiani’s students.

As for any art piece, the dresses are something more than simple fashion. More connected to the world of costume, we can find corsets and giant sleeves, huge wigs and zero-waste fabrics and embellishments that decore the big volumes. All designed by the talented students always having in mind the respect for the environment and the sustainable design process.
