The exhibition “In the making”, curated by Maria Luisa Frisa at Fashion Design Faculty of Iuav University of Venice

Refinement, emerging talents, bright and coherent work is the essence of what the University Iuav of Venice is about. The public institution trains young people and is headed by the fashion curator/critic/author/professor, Maria Luisa Frisa. Her initiatives have a contemporary and international concept which is oriented around a leitmotiv I celebrate – featured in “Fashion at Iuav”, the event was recently held in Treviso and included three events: the exhibition “In the making” at the Iuav University of Venice Fashion Design Faculty, curated by Maria Luisa Frisa which presented the works of the fashion design workshops of the three-year Fashion Design Degree Course, “End of the year show” at Palazzo Giacomelli, curated by Fabio Quaranta which hosted a series of catchy installations and tableaux-vivant and the refined “Graduation show” at Riviera Santa Margherita, directed by Mario Lupano and Cristina Zamagni, featuring the works of graduate students from the Fashion Design Bachelor of Arts and Master Advanced Course. The graduates offered many interesting proposals: “The new comers 2012” showcased in several boutiques, turning the city into a little cathedral of fashion. A laudable event I enjoyed and shared with my friend Simone Sbarbati, editor of blog  Frizzi Frizzi(www.frizzifrizzi.it).

Maria Luisa Frisa

I was very pleased to be present at the one day event recently held in Treviso at the Fashion Design Faculty – directed by the bright author, fashion curator and critic Maria Luisa Frisa – of Iuav University. I appreciated along with Simone Sbarbati – editor of blog Frizzi Frizzi – the fashion suggestions created by its students during the fashion show – which ended with the smashing track by John Lennon “Give peace a chance”. The show was held at the Teatro Comunale along with the wonderful performances and installations at the rooms of Faculty that were curated by the awesome Judith Clark, showcasing the works of students who attended the laboratories headed by the professors: Fabio Quaranta, Silvano Arnoldo, Bouboutic, Maria Vittoria Sargentini, Anthony Knight, Carlo Contrada, Angelo Figus and many other vibrant creatives. The success of event is in great part due to the laudable work developed by Maria Luisa Frisa and the institution which she heads. The end result makes clear the concrete, contemporary and detailed approach by a public Institution, forming talents, culture about fashion and the construction of fashion products under the sign of a contemporary mood.

Judith Clark

Sono stata molto lieta di essere presente all’evento di un giorno recentemente tenuto a Treviso presso la Facoltà di Design della Moda – diretta dalla brillante scrittrice, curatrice e critica di moda Maria Luisa Frisa – della Università Iuav. Ho apprezzato unitamente a Simone Sbarbati – editore del blog Frizzi Frizzi  - le suggestioni moda create dai suoi studenti durante la sfilata che si è conclusa con il formidabile brano di John Lennon “Give peace a chance”. La sfilata si è svolta presso il Teatro Comunale insieme a meravigliose performance e installazioni presso la Facoltà che sono state curate dalla fantastica Judith Clark, hanno esposto i lavori degli studenti che hanno frequentato i laboratori diretti dai professori: Fabio Quaranta, Silvano Arnoldo, Bouboutic, Maria Vittoria Sargentini, Anthony Knight, Carlo Contrada, Angelo Figus e molti altri vibranti creativi. Il successo dell’evento è in gran parte dovuto al lodevole lavoro consolidato da Maria Luisa Frisa e l’istituzione da lei diretta. Dal risultato finale si evince l’approccio, concreto dettagliato e contemporaneo da parte di un’Istituzione pubblica che forma talenti, cultura nell’ambito della moda e della costruzione di prodotti moda all’insegna di un mood contemporaneo.
