NABA takes part to ROMAISON, the initiative at its first edition, that presents from 23th October to 29th November the creative heritage of Rome’s Costume studios, in the exhibition set at the Ara Pacis Museum. Curated by the fashion historian and critic Clara Tosi Pamphili it explores the connection between Fashion and Costume through craftsmanship, research and experimentation, unveiling for the first time the collections and the authentic pieces preserved into the archives.
From 2nd to 9th November, NABA alumnus of the BA in Fashion Design Andrea De Luca will be present within the section of the exhibition that ROMAISON dedicates to fashion schools and academies, displaying two outfits of his collection “DISPOSITOR”. The collection revolves on the concept of clothing intended as a device, used by men as a way to express their freedom, and that unconsciously makes them slaves of their own means, together with an analysis originated by the anatomical study of every apparatus’ shape, put in relation with the problems that climate change could cause to it.
ROMAISON is also enriched by collateral events, such as the launch for the exhibition opening of its next 2021 project, “Embodying Pasolini”, a performance conceived and created by Olivier Saillard, with the participation of the international cinema icon Tilda Swinton, at the Testaccio’s Mattatoio. “ROMAISON 2020”, a promotional photographic path, in collaboration with Rome Film Fest, was also open to the public until 25th October at Auditorium Parco della Musica.
