Istituto Marangoni is a fashion school, spread internationally and present in the biggest fashion capitals like Milan, Florence, London and Paris. The school has a vision of contemporary fashion and tries successfully to transfer it to its students. So far, it has been more than successful and that can be seen by last couple fashion weeks where the school had it own representatives and collection. The London Fashion Week was no exception also. The students were presenting their collections in a unique way that goes internationally. It is well known that the British fashion scene is about being bold, different and breaking the rules. However, the Italian industry is about making them. These perfect opposites resulted in Istituto Marangoni’s presence in the London fashion week.
Being Italian, the school is like the Italians – chic, luxurious, traditions and building them is more important than following the trends and being driven by them. The Italians are those who strive to create and redefine the terms of beautiful and timeless style. The connection between the British and Italian fashion is in fact in the Istituto itself. It has played a significant role in the growth of the Italian fashion industry, has schooled more than 40.000 alumni, among them Domenico Dolce. Since then, their mission has remained the same: to prepare fashion professionals from Italian perspective while promoting academic excellence in fashion at the same time. For the upcoming Spring 2018 season, Istituto presented itself on the London fashion week in great light, as always.
The students opted for edgy, but wearable clothing that will definitely catch eyes and will speak their schools name. The pieces that appeared on the runway were a mixture of oversized blazers, wide trousers, kimono dresses, puff sleeves in new way and sheer dresses. The high and tight waist was accented on the wide leg pants and with belts. The stripes were a good choice for spring, both on jackets and pants. The popular kimono dress was in silk. The ruffles were no miss here, so they appeared on sleeves, ends on pants, waists – everywhere. The palette of colors used in this collection was in calm pastel tones, with no exception of black on a night gown with ruffles and one long dress half black half beige. The long coats where mainly white, with clean cuts and elegant. The collection was an artistic one, definitely made by the hands of future famous designers.
