The bag and its materials: Limonta with Lineapelle at the IUAV University of Venice
Presented the creations of the fashion Design laboratory of the IUAV University of Venice. An educational project of IUAV and Lineapelle. Limonta textile partner to support students.
On April 12th at the former Magazzini Ligabue which have become the seat of educational workshops, the projects of the fashion Design laboratory, the result of the collaboration between Lineapelle and the IUAV University of Venice, were presented.
Among the technical partners of the Limonta project, which provided the fabrics to make the prototypes of bags and accessories: GOTS certified cotton gabardine with polyurethane coatings giving a glossy effect, the iconic Dolmias Limonta made with recycled yarn, nylons with rope dyed recycled yarn giving the fabric a wavy appearance, raw cottons and linens, coated canvases and fabrics with polyurethane coatings in iridescent colours. The project, coordinated by the teachers Maria Luisa Frisa and Edoardo Brunello, saw about thirty students try their hand at designing a capsule collection with bags and hybrid garments. Accompanied by their teachers, the young designers built the moodboards of the projects and created the technical drawings and illustrations of their capsules, up to the packaging of the accessories. Creative and stylistic choices showed different approaches and uses and new interpretations of fabrics.
The collaboration project is aimed at supporting and enhancing the existing research project at the IUAV University of Venice on the Cultures of the Made in Italy project, as well as developing and identifying high-level professionalism through the financial support provided. Within the fashion Design Laboratory 4, Lineapelle S.r.l. coordinated the contribution of companies that represent excellence in the accessory sector: in addition to Limonta, the Bonaudo, Russo di Casandrino and Anaconda tanneries and for components and YKK Italia with closure accessories.
The aim of the project is to develop synergy between research, teaching and industry, with the consolidation of a transversal design educational path that focuses on the knowledge of raw materials used for accessories.
