Photographic Review of The Male Model Music Project in Italy Part 6 - Spring/Summer 2015 Edition/ Pitti Uomo 86

Story & photos by Ivan Guerrero
The international trade fair Pitti Immagine Uomo has concluded its 86th edition with an announced success compared to previous editions. With an increasing numbers of visitors, buyers and press from all over the world,  Pitti Immagine also celebrated 'Firenze Hometown of Fashion' on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana with a launch of a special program of events featuring 4 brands that were born in Florence (Gucci, Pucci, Salvatore Ferragamo and Ermanno Scervino) and other various  Italian fashion/art-related projects curated specially for the anniversary schedule in coincidence with the biggest menswear show in Europe.

'Ping Pitti Pong' was the theme of the fair's layout this edition, a metaphor for attitude and elegance, intending to reflect those qualities in fashion and sport.
The president of Pitti Immagine, Gaetano Marzotto and other relevant authorities (such as Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi who attended for the first time) at the opening ceremony which took place at the Salone dei Cinquecento in Palazzo Vecchio, exceptional location not only to celebrate the kickoff of the fair but also the 'Firenze Hometown of Fashion' special program of events in celebration of the 60th anniversary of activities of the Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana.

Story & photos by Ivan Guerrero

Already the 9th edition of Luisa Via Roma's biannual event/ project Firenze4Ever that celebrates fashion, music and new media. For 3 days the multibrand luxury shop gathered once more a group of bloggers who were in charge to create special looks using garments of the upcoming Autumn/Winter 2014 season in exclusive to be used and featured in/ for the traditional Fashion Lab photo shoots around Florence. 
The closing party took place at the ex-Manifattura Tabacchi (former tobacco factory) that was re-opened exclusively for the occasion. Blue lighting and blue everything (almost) in coordination with the theme  BLUCITY, which celebrated a special project that intends to turn this antique venue into a restyled location where fashion and art events/ workshops can be held in the near future.
