“60 Years Of Made In Italy”

60 Years of Made in Italy” is the exhibition organized to celebrate the history and evolution of Italian style and fashion. When it comes to the amazing scope of work accumulated over a span of several decades, Italian fashion truly endures. Today, there is still a keen international appetite for designs that bear the mark of “Made in Italy”.

More than 50 treasured pieces selected by Fiorella Galgano and Alessia Tota will be showcased from May 30 to June 30 at Yorkville Village, 55 Avenue Rd, Toronto, from various archives and private collections.

Stunning high fashion garments. Unique creations. Pret-a'-porter items. A marvellous gallery of the best products of Italian creativity. The history of customs, elegance, style. From Emilio Schuberth to the Sorelle Fontana, from Roberto Capucci to Valentino. And then, Sarli, Lancetti, Renato Balestra, Marella Ferrera, Brioni, Giorgio Armani, Laura Biagiotti, Roberto Cavalli, Dolce&Gabbana, Fendi, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gianfranco Ferre', Gucci, Crizia, Max Mara, Missoni, Moschino, Prada, Trussardi, Versace and many others. The exhibition, curated by Fiorella Galgano and Alessia Tota, has reached Toronto thanks to the Consulate General of Italy and the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in collaboration with Yorkville Village.

Visitors can admire some of the finest pieces ever created by Italian stylists: from the famous Prada dress worn by actress Cate Blanchett at the Oscar ceremony in 2000, to the Giorgio Armani dress worn by icon Sophia Loren in 2006. From the Valentino red dress worn by English actress Liz Hurley, voted the greatest dress on the red carpet, to Brioni suit created for the movie 007 worn by Pierce Brosnan, to mention just a few.
