MA students from the Creative Knitwear Design Masters program at the Accademia Costume & Moda in Rome showcased their latest collections in a catwalk show at Pitti Immagine Filati 84 earlier this month.

Napapijri and The Woolmark Company asked students to create sports and technically advanced farments based on the theme of fashion and performance. Responses to the briefs ranged from printed raincoats (Giulia Valabrega), hooded ponchos (Hannah Jane Duncan) and outwear featuring oversized envelope-like pouches (Dario Tubiana).

The students were tasked with showing personal projects as well as collections created in collaboration with brands including Benetton, Roberto Collina, Max Mara, Ermanno Scervino and Napapijri & The Woolmark Company.
