“The fashion sector represents an immense heritage for our country. An economic, social and cultural heritage. – declares Antonio Franceschini, National Manager of CNA Federmoda – In the context of RMI – Research Fashion Innovation we try not to neglect any of these aspects as we believe that the force of fashion is also given by this articulation and complexity that leads to the need to have a wide preparation to better face the sector “. “This is why the National Competition for Young Fashion Designers Professionals born in 1991 since the first editions has been characterized by the investment in information and training to bring to young people interested in entering this world” continues Franceschini.
