Trip to Pitti Filati

Last week I had the privilege of going to Pitti Filati a knitwear trade show in Florence.  All of the big yarn companies were displaying their new collections for Spring 2013.  The big yarn and knit trends that I noticed while walking around the trade show were:

Bright Colors

Trend Display Spring 2013 Color Card Spring 2012

Metallic and Sparkly Yarns

Puckers and 3D Stitches

Sydney, Kourtney, and I (the three 4th year knitwear students) were given the opportunity to create a mini collection to help with the re-branding of a Cotton yarn company called FiloScozia.  We helped in the production of these garments and they are going to be presented at Premiere Vision in Paris in February.  One of each of our looks was also presented at the Filmar booth at Pitti Filati!  Enjoy some photos of my looks at the trade show…
