More from the The Male Model Music Project's visit to Pitti Uomo 80 in Florence, Italy.
My Factory is the section of the fair that features upcoming talent and young projects in which fashion,music, graphics and new media interact in a self-proclaimed community that supports research, eclecticism and eco-sustainability.
Young creatives, fresh talent and a huge dose of innovation meeting 'product culture', can be found at My Factory, featuring for this edition more than 60 full and capsule collections, such as Button Noise (interview with The Male Model Music Project is HERE), Rivieras Leisure Shoes, Springa, Skive, Monsieur Lacenaire, Hells Bells and many more.
Check out some photos of the building and a glimpse of the exhibition. The setting was specially designed by architect Oliviero Baldini. Unfortunately, some exhibitors did not allow photos of their products.
