This show celebrates Italian excellence in its most renowned forms – fashion – with some of the most influential Italian fashion houses, those who have made history for our country.
The focus was on the evolution of the concept of style through the techniques, fabrics and ideas that changed clothing and accessories from after WWII to today. Among the many, Missoni is participating in La moda: the glamour of Italian fashion with its iconic zigzag pattern, a universal ‘language’ for modern clothing with a tradition flare.
“Missoni has a long history in fashion that continues today; I still remember the first fashion show I participated in. My parents did it in 1970 in the famous sala bianca in Florence,” said Angela Missoni in an exclusive video for V & A.
Tomorrow, 28 March 2014 at 6:00 p.m. local time, Angela Missoni will introduce these themes to the public in a Evening talk and will discuss her vision of fashion as a designer and member of one of the most iconic families in Italy.
“My role here is to update my parents’ ‘language’; after sixty years, we are still here in the countryside outside Milan, and for us, it is really just another part of our home. We started with yarn and we did everything by ourselves; we learned to always transform it into something new. For many, it's strange to see we are still here.”
