NABA takes part to the February 2021 edition of Rome Fashion Week organized by Altaroma, one of the most important events of Italian fashion, with “The Best of NABA - Fashion View”, a selection of the best projects created by the students of the Academy’s Fashion Design Area, presented through the unprecedented format of the virtual show.
On February 18th at 5 pm the video will premiere on the digital platform digitalrunway.altaroma.it created by Altaroma to encourage the public’s participation and virtual interaction.
NABA Fashion Design Area has always been open to the dialogue with contemporary languages, and on this occasion decided to experiment the hybridization of new forms of expression, looking for innovative visions for fashion communication: in continuation with the digital platform fashionview.naba.it launched by the Academy in 2020 as a digital hub for the student’s projects, presented through experimental languages and unconventional forms, the expressive medium of choice for the occasion is a virtual show, curated and directed by Paolo Bazzani, NABA lecturer and Art Director, using the 3D virtual reality new technologies in a path that leads to the new, on a journey into metaphysical and ever-changing environments, not far away from the world we are passing through.
“The Best of NABA - Fashion View” also connects to this theme through the original soundtrack conceived and realised specifically by Guido Tattoni, author as well as NABA Dean. The soundtrack presents glitches and dissonances, in a constant dialogue with the video’s artistic direction and through an immersion in the collection’s references, that characterize the author’s compositional method, and at the same time are the perfect representation of the fashion world, made up of different languages, forms and identities, often in contrast with each other.
The presented menswear and womenswear collections were created by the NABA alumni of the BA in Fashion Design Lucia Grande, Sofia Interligi, Pierfrancesco Pierucci, Mar'yana P'yetsukh, Cristiano Ragazzoni, Melissa Riva, Serena Romei, Alessia Santoro and Niki Signoretti, and of the MA in Fashion and Textile Design Luisa Nunziata, Matteo Salamone and Franca Tomaino.
