FIT students showcase collections at fashion show in Milan

Five students who graduated with BFA degrees from the Fashion Institute of Technology’s (FIT) Fashion Design program with the Politecnico di Milano in Milan presented their collections at a runway show and concert titled Armonie (Harmony), held on May 29 at the Hospitale dei Pellegrini. Students from the Conservatorio di Milano played classical music and jazz. FIT President Joyce F. Brown attended and addressed the students.

The FIT students presented garments in either the children’s wear or sportswear specialization. Throughout the semester, they worked closely with design faculty and an industry critic to formulate concepts and create a capsule collection.

The majority of the fabrics used were donated by Cittadellarte Fashion B.E.S.T., an operative workshop dedicated to the development of sustainable textiles. The students also designed printed textiles in the Politecnico studios in Como.

Students specializing in sportswear were Kellie Lamkin (who designs under the name Luciana Grimaldi), Mariko Sakuma McNeill, Jolie Mittleman, and Jacqueline Ramis. Meghan McGuffin presented the children’s wear specialization.

FIT and the Politecnico di Milano began its collaborative agreement in 2007. FIT students reside in Milan for one or two years, studying integrated courses at the Politecnico di Milano. Academic activities off-campus include visits to tradeshows, production sites, museums, exhibitions, and design studios.
