A fascinating evening of fashion shows was held on February 24 on the occasion of the Italian Fur Fashion Night, putting the spotlight also on the new generation that is approaching a special, intense and creative sector: fur.

During the evening, besides renowned names, there was room for the energy of new talents, that of Remix, the emerging designer competition organized by the International Fur Federation, a fashion & design contest that has been providing a special route into the world of industry since 2013.

Ten finalists reached the backstage of the catwalk; three of them became winners, chosen by a prestigious jury composed of big names of the fashion universe, such as Fabrizio Perrini, Giuseppe Magistro and Simonetta Gianfelici, and with the participation of Deanna Ferretti. During the evening, the three designers presented
their collections on the catwalk in front of an audience of over a thousand guests, including buyers, celebrities, fashion influencers and the international press.

Romantic Nordic landscapes were the setting for the collection of Morten Ussing, the Danish designer who reached the top step of the podium. The Silver Award went to Ólöf Sigriour Jóhannsdóttir, Icelander, who gave voice to a world without borders, adding a touch of glamour to everyday life. The third prize went to Nicolas Lecourt Mansion, a French designer who upended the rules, recreating them and proposing a new interpretation of beauty.

Fashion speaks for itself

Thirty years of the history of Italy narrated through “Made In Italy” fashion: this is the proposal of the exhibition inaugurated in Palazzo Reale during the last Milan Fashion Week and which comes to a close in these days.
It is a fitting tribute to a pivotal period in which a generation of stylists, industrialists, designers, artists, architects and intellectuals defined Italy’s image in the world and put it on the map of international culture.
