Couturialism the fashion show at the Mercati di Traiano



Tonight, Thursday October 6, 2022, Couturialism will be staged, the fashion show that celebrates ten years since the creation of the Fashion Culture and Technologies course at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome.

The project organized by Sara Chiarugi and Alberto Moretti has selected the twenty best student-designers of the last ten years, who will each present their own capsule collection in the evocative Mercati di Traiano, entrance via Salita del Grillo.

Couturialism: young people interact with the architecture of the past

A unique occasion that connects the inventiveness of young people with the magnificence of ancient Rome, a meeting that does not celebrate the past, but highlights the creative force of memory. The event is promoted by Roma Capitale with the contribution of Mariano Angelucci, President of the Fashion, Tourism and International Relations Commission of Roma Capitale, and Cecilia Casorati, Director of the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. The guest of honor for the evening will be Anna Fendi. Couturialism therefore intends to tell the idea of ​​a new and original aesthetic and thought current, characterized by an innovative vision of fashion, sewing techniques and the exaltation of the handmade, as an expressive and cultural identity of each student. .

Artisanal techniques on display

The clothes and accessories represent the celebration of the artisanal and artistic techniques of Couturialism, combined with a solid knowledge of the history of art and fashion, acquired by the final year BA and Biennium students as part of the Parcours Fashion Design from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. A course of study, where the history of art and fashion are the foundations of training. The Department of Fashion Cultures and Technologies of the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome represents in fact a point of reference in the panorama of public fashion education and today it is one of the addresses of the Academy with the most members. Indeed, students take courses in Fashion Design, Costume Design, Sewing Techniques, Accessory Design, Fabric Design, Textile Culture, Artistic Anatomy, Photography, Graphic Design, Culture of Fashion Materials, Fashion Design, Design for Fashion, Illustration.

However, the artistic contamination is the characteristic element of a course, where the student, parallel to the teaching of fashion, has the possibility of freely following the classic artistic disciplines typical of the study course of an academy of fine arts. Thus the students are offered the possibility of following courses in painting, sculpture, scenography and this generates a real cultural contamination which is invariably reflected in the collections presented on the podium and which connotes the multidisciplinary approach of the Academy.

Couturialism, the history of students

The young designers, through the presentation of a capsule collection of five garments, for both men and women, in Couturialisme will tell their personal vision and identity of fashion. The twenty designers selected by the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome are: Federica Bettelli, Elisa Brunetto, Guido Buongiorno, Erika Chiaverini, Giorgia Cianfanelli, Domitilla Damiani, Aurora De Silli, Giulia Fastellini, Chiara Guerzoni, Leonardo Ferri, Tamara Kavrakova, Chen Lin, Silvia Manzara, Emiliano Marinelli, Federica Ognibene, Susanna Picchiami, Polina Strepetova, Chiara Volpe, Wanjing Ye, Hainiyeh Zairei.

The history of the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome

Among the oldest academies in Italy, born from an evolution of the Academy of San Luca, founded at the end of the 16th century, the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome was taken as a model for similar institutions that would have emerged many in our country and throughout Europe. Today it is one of the most important Italian public institutions and one of the main centers of higher education, specialization and research in the artistic field and enjoys full didactic and administrative autonomy. It therefore falls under the university sector of artistic and musical higher education (AFAM) and can award first-level (licence) and second-level (master’s) academic diplomas. Among his students and teachers there were artists of the caliber of Sartorio, Cambellotti, Ferrazzi, Mafai, Ziveri, Fazzini, Scialoja, Gentilini, Kounellis, Pascali, Tirelli, Nunzio, Ceccobelli, Pizzi Cannella, Dessì, Canevari.
