Also this year in October twenty-one designers from the most important style academies in Europe arrived in Como with the aim of taking part to ComON project.
During those days young people had the chance to visit the highest-profile companies worldwide, among which Canepa.
"The new eco: trace it" is the headline of "ComON Creativity Sharing" 2018 edition. Combining glamour and sustainability, the event mainly draws inspiration from environmental, ethical and social respect, which is increasingly influencing the world of fashion.
Canepa, with its overt green commitment, couldn't have missed the date.
This year the eleventh edition of Unindustria Como project, realised in cooperation with important organisations and associations located in Como district (such as Chamber of Commerce, Confartigianato Como and Como municipality) and some of the most prestigious textile companies like Canepa, has issued to the students of creative academies and universities the challenge of realising outfits, accessories or items exclusively made with ecological and renewable materials.
Moreover an English student has been given the opportunity to make an internship in Canepa's jacquard design department, since thirteen out of the twenty-one talented designers participating to creativity week also had the possibility to truly experience the working life of above-mentioned textile companies; this way youngsters could learn manufacturing processes, find out professional tips and tricks and even create real capsule collections.
