“Fashion is a language”, presented by prof. Nicoletta Morozzi, Director of the Fashion Department in NABA – Nuova Accademia Belle Arti, Milan.
Nicoletta Morozzi has been the Fashion Scientific Adviser of the Fashion Area in NABA since 2010.
Her professional activity spreads across the fields of fashion, art and design. From industrial and handcrafted knitwear collections, to the coordination of international fashion and design exhibitions, to books publishing and collaboration with fashion and design magazines, as well as realizing textile artworks.
Passionate in knitting and embroidery, she is one of the founders of Do-knit–yourself, a project based on the use of knitting as a tool for weaving threads and relations, both at a physical and metaphorical level. Started within NABA, the Do-knit-yourself project lead to the realization of the exhibitions Do-it-jibun-de at Muji Atelier in Tokyo, and Dritto-Rovescio at Triennale Milano (catalogue edited by Electa), where the project Family Dress, a collective knitting artwork, was first presented to the public, becoming since then a reference point for the new knitting world.
The Milano-Cina project, also born within the Academy, involved the Chinese community in Milan in a re-interpretation of shop windows in Via Sarpi, Milan Chinatown, using design as a cultural integration tool.
