Supporting young talents in the name of shared expertise

9 November 2017

Riri Group has recently started some important collaborations and partnerships with renowned Fashion schools and institutes on the national and international scene.

Among them, the one between Riri Group and the third-year students from Polimoda’s Footwear and Accessories Design class. Known worldwide for its capacity to combine business and design across all departments, Polimoda is considered by The Business Of Fashion’s Global Fashion School Rankings as the best fashion institute in Italy and amongst the top ten in the world.

One of these are the fruitful collaboration with ARSUTORIA (Riri Group will supply the best accessories for the bag pattern-making course) and with STA – Scuola Specializzata Superiore di Abbigliamento e Design della Moda.

Another important initiative has been the “Silver Dreams” project, part of the school-to-work programme in partnership with many schools from the Province of Sondrio. For this, two young students of the Fashion Course at Polo di Formazione Professionale (PFP Valtellina) and interns at Riri, had the original idea of designing and creating bridal gowns and accessories made from the waste products of zip production. Fantasy and talent took the factory by storm while the Milanese photographer Valentino Candiani portrayed the girls’ work in a high-fashion photo shoot.
