Tell me about you



  The Polimoda Fashion Show for 2017 took place on June 15th on the occasion of the 92nd edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo.
  Villa Favard, the opulent 19th-century building located along the Arno river in the heart of Florence and headquarters of Polimoda, hosted the best menswear and womenswear collections by final year students of the undergraduate course in Fashion Design.



  A jury of influential contemporary fashion figures looked on the 20 best collections from the final year students, studied the collections, and cast their votes choosing as the best collection "Children should be seen and not heard" by Shania Matthews.
"Beyond traditional categories of people based on societal constructs, in the end there is always the human. Tell Me About You insists students do exactly this; express who they are with their clothes, to us and to themselves. Their tool is the garment - to communicate an identity, create a silent dialogue, and begin a story". - Danilo Venturi, director of Polimoda.
