AN/ARCHIVE Event One

Set Design, Florence, 2024



The human body stands at the forefront of fashion – it is the canvas upon which designers express their creativity and vision. AN/ARCHIVE EVENT ONE delves into this intrinsic relationship, exploring how fashion shapes and is shaped by our physical form. The theme invited a contemplative journey through various interpretations of the body in fashion, from the way garments drape and move to the societal and cultural significances imbued in fashion.

It’s a celebration and examination of the body through the lens of style, identity and artistic expression.

The exhibition space, designed by (ab)Normal for @polimodafirenze, responds to the bare architecture of the recently renovated B4 Building at @manifatturatabacchifi, and showcases works from designers, artists and researchers from various disciplines, ranging from olfactory art to choreography. This space serves as a dynamic platform in dialogue with an exhibition of iconic garments by contemporary renowned designers, in collaboration with A.N.G.E.L.O. Vintage Archive.

The event, that took place during Pitti Uomo 2024 (9 - 21 January, 2024), hosted a program of meetings with authors, experts and fashion researchers, fostering a series of crucial dialogues on the role of archiving, diversity in body representation, and the evolving dynamics of the fashion industry.
