Pitti Filati January 2014

Textiles staff and students have recently returned from Pitti Filati knit show in Florence. Pitti Filati is a key international event for the knitting industry. It presents future lifestyle trends and excellence in yarns to an audience of designers and buyers.

Our students created knitted textile lengths for the Trend Area of the show. Bucks New University were the only UK university to be invited to make and show our work at this event. The students worked under the guidance of Fiona Ross, Knitted Textiles Pathway Leader, and Carlo Volpi, Knitwear Designer, to create work in response to a set brief by Pitti Filati. The results were a great success at the show.
