This is how the newspapers described the dress worn by Margot Sikabonyi on the red carpet at the 80th Venice Film Festival.
It is a dress from a collection designed by the conscious designer Tiziano Guardini with illustrations by the artist Jacopo Ascari, made with the biodegradable fibre Bemberg™ by Asahi Kasei, and with parts in Burano lace by the ancient company Martina Vidal Venezia.
The dress represents the project A Dress For Venice, conceived by Venezia da Vivere to celebrate the craftsmanship of Venice and raise awareness of the urgency of sustainable fashion.
After the day at the festival, curators Laura Scarpa and Lorenzo Cinotti accompanied Titian and Jacopo to Burano to meet the lace-makers of Atelier Martina Vidal, who are making the lace details destined to enrich the dresses of the capsule collection.
The Burano-based company Martina Vidal Venezia is producing the entire A Dress for Venice collection, which will be presented on Friday 20 October at Venice Fashion Week, the event dedicated to tailoring, craftsmanship and sustainable fashion that celebrates 10 years this year and will take place in Venice from 19 to 28 October 2023.
The project has the support of a chain of companies identified by the Tavolo Veneto della Moda (Veneto Table of Fashion), the global platform C.L.A.S.S. (Creativity Lifestyle and Sustainable Synergy) and has the partnership of Camera Buyer Italia and the media partnership of The Italian Rêve.
A Dress For Venice was conceived by Venezia da Vivere in 2019 to celebrate 1600 years of craftsmanship in Venice.
It has the patronage of the Veneto Region, the Municipality of Venice, Tavolo Veneto della Moda and Homo Faber – Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte, which promotes high craftsmanship and savoir-faire worldwide.
