Paid Entry (£15.00)

WHERE:

Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3XF

WHAT:

Discover key moments in the history of Missoni as Diana Marian Murek, Director of Education at the Istituto Marangoni London school, analyses the history of the company since 1953 and how the Missoni brand has successfully promoted Italian values overseas. From its famous stripes and space-dyed knits, to the launch of the digital archive a few years ago, the talk charts how the Missoni business grew with support from La Rinascente in the 1950s, the assistance of Anna Piaggi and Diana Vreeland in the 1960s, plus the Neiman Marcus award in 1973.

Murek explores how Missoni support for research, craftsmanship and manufacturing has embodied the values of ‘Made in Italy’ for over 60 years. She also links the work of Missoni to the Italian fashion school Istituto Marangoni, with fashion schools in London, Paris, Milan, Florence, Shanghai and Shengzen.
