We staged an almost theatrical representation, a sort of silent and solemn fashion show. Coats on mannequins regains the shape for which they were designed, the movement enhances the craftsmanship and defines the details, the light caresses the fabric to reveal the texture, and the set restores a coherence of colours and materials to the narrative. There are no distractions. This project was configured as a great journey through the history of fashion, and an opportunity to observe, to understand the will of the designer in the act of designing, to pursue the expression of creativity in the service of the company’s vision. This is fashion that expresses fashion. It is a subject that requires a narrative technique.
