The 40th edition of the Rome fashion week was held once again at the nostalgically cinematic Cinecittà Studios. From the 2nd to the 4th of February, Altaroma showcased an eclectic mix of designers each presenting on the runway their personal point of view. From the refreshingly effortless Simon Cracker to the love for craftsmanship of Casa Preti, this season brought together multiple facets of Italian fashion in a contemporary context.
More than 70% of the more than 80 brands produced by Altaroma – of which 79 in the Showcase project – boast sustainable production. Moreover, about 80% of them are companies, start-ups and projects founded or led by women.
The series of group fashion shows by emerging made in Italy brands called “Rome Is My Runway” is present on each of the three days. In search of full self-expression “Rome Is My Runway” is serving as a looking glass to the future of Italian fashion.
Altaroma defends and consolidates its role as a point of reference for independent brands and emerging designers among Italian events, and it positions itself internationally as the fashion week of new, innovative, sustainable and high-quality Italian fashion.
“The role of the city of Rome is now clear – concludes the President – Rome is the hub of young talents, emerging brands, and independent designers, and this means working on values, content and methods that are constantly evolving.
We decided to share with you some of our favorite looks from the runway of the 40th edition of Altaroma:
