RadiciGroup, an industrial multinational engaged in the production of numerous materials used by the technical and sports apparel industries, has partnered with Italy-based technical university Politecnico di Milano for organising a sportswear design workshop. The workshop is a part of the university's masters programme in design for the fashion system.

More than 40 international students are attending the workshop that is focused on the design and development of garments with innovative shapes, materials and styles, specifically intended for the sportswear sector. The first workshop will end in December this year.

"For many years now, synthetic fibres have played a fundamental role in a variety of applications: high-end intimatewear, innerwear as outerwear and sportswear, automotive, furnishings, and many other industrial uses," said Marco De Silvestri, marketing manager of the RadiciGroup comfort fibres business area.

"The intrinsic versatility of synthetic fibres is the very reason why they have become fundamental allies in creating innovative solutions in a field that cannot ignore the knowledge of materials. Polyamide and polyester – each having its own distinctive characteristics, to be covered during the workshop – ensure very high aesthetic and functional performance. RadiciGroup, with its vertically integrated production (from chemicals to polymers and textile yarn), has the know-how and capability to adapt fibre properties in step with the rapid changes in trends and needs of the highly competitive textiles market, which is always trying to set the bar higher to achieve new goals," Silvestri continued.

"It is important for these students, our future designers, to learn how to design by combining the desired goal with the characteristics of the raw materials and the required innovative content. Knowledge of raw materials and the ability to maximize their utility must become an integral part of a modern designer’s background," concluded Silvestri. (RR)
