The art of knitwear
at Pitti Filati 88

The art of knitwear plays a key role in Pitti Filati 88. And United Colors of Benetton had to be there.

Along with 54 other Italian companies, we've partnered in the Creative Knitwear Design Master's Program, organized by the Academy of Costume and Fashion in Rome, in collaboration with Modateca Deanna. A course intended for anyone who wants to learn the specific skills dealing with collection design for knit and jersey products.

This year 13 students from the master's program presented their final work on the Pitti Connect digital platform, with a Fashion Film inspired by the dark realms of experts Lars Von Trier and David Lynch.

Among the creative projects were the fantastic creations by Francesca Rea and Li Chia Chiang, two budding designers who presented an Industry Project for United Colors of Benetton.
