Workshop: A°19 W°20 fitway by Meidea

A°19 W°20 FITWAY: Coordinates for new shapes

“We are amidst a rapidly changing reality, an impulse that is dynamically driving innovation and design.

Guided by the necessity of a sustainable future, we seek a conscious way in the use of material’s and conceiving projects.
In designing a collection, the knowledge of processes, its materials and their origins are guidelines for the future.
Traceability and transparency are primary values: consumers feel the conscious need to understand more about the products.
Communication is vital in showing how things are made and new values and interpretations are taking shape.
Technology leads us to innovation, digitization allows us to interact with the product.
Historical brands are concerned with their past and are rediscovering their founding values, their original energies;
this trend starts from the voices of consumers, from pop culture, the birth of a new era. The fashion trends also marks a transition: designing fits for a collection, sustained by the value of diversity, we will come up with a fluid identity.
A new aesthetic will be recognized in a wide spectrum of genres, a visual morph that accompanies the body outside codified identities in the transfigurations and freedom of expression.
