Italian Fashion 2011
Celebrate Italian innovation, artistry and styling in fashion design @ Italian Fashion 2011

Italy a history of fashion expression
Italian fashion as we know it today began in Italy in 1951 when a man by the name of Count Giorgini decided to hold a fashion “show” in his stately palace in Florence so people of all classes, not just the upper class, could view his designs and enjoy his clothes. He set up a bar and chairs around an empty area on the floor and he had three women walk between the tables modeling his designs.

In the spirit of Count Giorgini, we open our doors to everyone interested in the Italian fashion scene to participate in Italian Fashion 2011 in Toronto.

ITALY AND ITALIAN FASHION DESIGNERS HAVE BEEN THE PIONEERS OF NUMEROUS FASHION TRENDS, NEW DESIGN TECHNIQUES AND PURE CREATIVE GENIUS. FURTHERMORE, ITALIAN DESIGNERS HAVE CREATED FASHIONS FOR EVERYONE, DESIGNING FOR KINGS AND QUEENS, ASTRONAUTS AND THE EVERYDAY PERSON.

THIS IS THE REASON MANY FASHION CRITICS CONSIDER ITALY THE “FASHION HUB OF THE WORLD.”
