What’s More Alive Than You™ presents in these days its first PER MANENT COLLECTION showing as preview a series of shoes and bags designed thanks to the creativity of 15 young students and professionals unknown to the general public, but with great skills and talent.
Among them not only fashion designers but also architects and product designers, who have accepted the multidisciplinary challenge offered by What’s More Alive Than You ™ by creating objects really special, suitable for those who want to stand out, with the spirit of this new Italian brand which offers wearable objects closer to the world of art and design than to the rules of traditional fashion.
This new brand and its ambitious project are recognized by the press about fashion, design and art of 72 countries. Several Universities around the world already involved their students in our creative calls launched several times per year for the design of the collections; among them 15 are already actively working together in partnership. There are already 45 people selected as authors of the artworks, some of them presented in the first PERMANENT COLLECTION and they come from 19 different countries. A project that started just over a year ago but is creating so much interest and curiosity in thousands of people who every day visit the institutional website.
