Trame di Moda is designed and curated by Fabiana Giacomotti, a writer and teacher of the Science of Fashion and Costume at the Sapienza University in Rome, together with Alessandro Lai, a costume designer and art historian.
It offers visitors a high-impact installation curated by Sergio Colantuoni in the evocative rooms of the ground floor and piano nobile of Palazzo Mocenigo, and a comparison between costumes from great films that were filmed in Venice, the current fashion that drew inspiration from these films and ideas, and the valuable items of clothing preserved in the museum. With over seventy items of clothing from the most famous collections, fashion maison and costume designers in the world, a documentary video made by Rai5 and spectacular clothes, Trame di moda – Donne e stile alla Mostra del Cinema di Venezia is the exhibition that Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia will present, opening on 2 September at Palazzo Mocenigo – Study Centre of the History of Fabrics and Costumes. The exhibition will go on until the 6th of February 2013.
