Pitti Immagine Uomo Every year in Florence takes place one of the most events related to the world of fashion: Pitti Immagine Uomo. This very important fair takes place in January and June, and it is the showcase of everything that will be cutting-edge during the next season for men’s fashion and, in small part, for women’s (recent is, in fact, the Pitti W).
The fair is an usually reserved to professionals related to the fashion industry, but even if you are not a journalists or a buyer, this fair is for you an opportunity to see the city of Florence completely transformed…For about 3 days, in fact, all the streets of the city center are decorated and adorned; anywhere, along the streets, you can meet models and people of all nationalities with extravagant looks hustling to go from a meeting to another. At night the historical buildings open for spectacular and exclusive parties! And the people become literally mad to have the opportunity to enter one of these VIPs parties. The Pitti events, in fact, do not only take place within the Fortezza da Basso, the trade fair complex where the fashion stands are set up, but also in other Florentine locations. During the Pitti Immagine Uomo in January 2013, for instance, there was Ermanno Scervino fashion show just within Palazzo Vecchio, inside the historical Salone dei ’500. Together with the VIPs parties and the official events there are many other events organized by shops, bars and locals by Public Relation Agents, which are fairly easy to access. The 83th edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo was held from the 8th to the 11th of January 2013 and it has presented the Fall-winter 2013/2014 collection.
During the days prior to the beginning of the Pitti Fair you can have the chance to look some preview of the emerging fashion simply by walking around Florence: you just need to look at the fashion placards, to the shop windows, to the VIPs clothes created by the most renowned Fashion Industries, or even just looking at the models and those who works in the fashion field so to have an idea of what will be trendy the following year.
