Published: Mon Jun 27 2005

Florence July 5 to 8 2005 – Jolly Hotel, Piazza Vittorio Veneto
9 a.m. through to 9 p.m. (non-stop)
Free admission upon registration at the hotel hospitality desk

In Florence the First no-profit Vintage event self-made by a group of vintage fashion experts will have its premiere

The next 5th of July at the Jolly Hotel in Florence an important event will take place: the innovating chosen format is a workshop and show displaying a gamut of period high fashion garments, dresses, accessories, rare costume jewelry, purses, shoes, knitwear, unique specimens, antique fabrics and samples.

The event has been edited and supervised by Angela Eupani Serio, marketing manager (R.P. Comunicazione e Marketing Perla) and vintage researcher specialized in period accessories and purses. All the exhibitors, well-known experts and collectors of vintage fashion, have joined in a special team aimed at proposing a top quality selection of items with a high stylistic content. The public invited, due to the particular seasonal moment and the contemporary Pitti Immagine Filati, will consist prevalently in high fashion and ready-to-wear designers, buyers, manufacturing companies, leather bags and footwear producers, jewelry designers but will be open to vintage fans and collectors too.
This working team of exhibitors has focused on managing any efforts to keep appropriate distance from the so called "ready made" or "remake" and "outlets" categories which differ from the rigorous and authentic vintage selection.
The items on show will be prevalently referred to the Fall/Winter season due to the fact that fashion operators are right now starting their research aimed at finding inspirations and themes in order to design and project their next Winter collections.

Vintage Workshop (r) is promoted and supported by the cultural No-profit Association "connecting-managers" which is the largest free association active in marketing, communication and events organizing with its over 6500 associates.
A consistent number of Companies which identify fashion operators as their core-business, have decided to support the show by offering at no coast their services or products as significant means for its success.
La Grafica De Pellegrin (Bassano – offset printing ), Grafiche Turato (Padova - offset printing), Pixelica (Rossano - web design), Ross Allestimenti (Parma, display and fair equipments), MXM Photo (Pavia, Photo reporting Agency), Tomasi Master Italia (Vicenza, official sponsor).
