Wool seen in many guises at Pitti Immagine Filati

At Pitti Immagine Filati held in Florence, wool was seen in many guises, as international spinners showed their latest work with luxury fibres at the 79th edition.

According to Woolmark, Merino wool proved a great material for the artistry which forms part of the make-up of the yarn trade, which was generally agreed to be particularly energetic and imaginative this year.

The Wool Lab from Woolmark saw a busy flow of buyers and designers and overall visitor numbers from most major markets were up by at least 4 per cent over the previous edition.

Interpretations of exhibitors' yarns displayed in the Trend Area had set pieces designed for 24 hours, under the theme, A Day in the Life.

Conceived by Angelo Figus and Nicola Miller, the forward-looking garments utillised Merino wool or blended yarns, showing how yarns can work together and was both creative and inspiring.

An artistic fashion show was also put on by Pitti Italics in the old Teatro della Pergola and featured knits in a wonderful fusion of theatre, dance and fashion.

Pitti Filati saw a number of important events, including 'Feel the Yarn', which sees top students from across the world, work with top-class Italian yarns and visiting spinning mills, after which their work is evaluated for the 'Feel the Yarn' award.

This year's winner was Wang Yanjung, student at Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology student, who works with Toscana Yarns.

There was also a special prize from Salvatore Ferragamo, which was awarded to Polimoda Florence student Yan Wen, who had worked with Pecci Filati yarns. (AR)
