- Florence showcases new fashion at Pitti Immagine Filati

June 03, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News divulges holidaymakers with an eye on next season's trends may like to visit Italy for the forthcoming Pitti Immagine Filati show in Florence.

Taking place at the city's Fortezza da Basso from July 6th to 8th, the event is a trade fair focused on the latest in fabric and knitwear products.

Perhaps due to its cutting-edge nature and the desirability of the clothing on display, this twice-yearly show is highly popular with the general public as well as international fashion buyers.

People using Florence hotels can expect a programme of special presentations and side exhibitions alongside the central show, which offers previews of knitwear styles for 2011-2012.

The main attraction at this year's event, in which fashion designer Angelo Figus and knitwear expert Nicola Miller will introduce upcoming trends, is based on the theme "Move".

In the words of the organisers: "Move is an energetic and visionary call to get things, people and ideas moving again, to recover that feeling of amazement that comes with discovering new places, people and cultures."

During Pitti Immagine Filati, Florence's Stazione Leopolda will stage the Vintage Selection fair, which offers the chance to browse through vintage clothing, accessories and design objects.

If you're heading to Pitti Immagine Filati this year, we strongly advise that you book your hotel Firenze as soon as possible, given the huge popularity of the event.
