Venice Fashion Week 2018: ‘Slow’ Fashion in Venice

18 October 2018 - 27 October 2018

The Venice Fashion Week brings sartorial, ethical and slow fashion to Venice from 18th to 27th October.


Eighteen fashion shows, three exhibitions, one conference and many events: the countdown has started; Venice Fashion Week is taking place in Venice from October 18th to 27th.

Cat shows in different palaces and in a carpentry workshop, a pyjama party, a show with drones, exhibitions that reveal the contemporary side of the Venetian tailors and their collections, created thanks to the collaboration between the ancient knowledge of the historical, traditional companies and the vision of the future of the modern designers; a promotion and an enhancement of the high Venetian craftsmanship and talents of the territory to raise awareness on current issues of ethical, tailoring and long-lasting fashion.

A party for Venice, the capital of slow fashion and a workshop for designing new lifestyles, together with designers, companies, Venetian people, Italian and international tailors. Venice Fashion Week is a project by VeneziadaVivere in collaboration with the City of Venice, the Veneto Fashion Table, the Piazza San Marco Association, the Management Department of Ca ‘Foscari University and IED Venice.

Saturday, October 27th is the grand finale with Venice Fashion Night: events, cocktails, fashion shows and dj-sets for a fashion festival open to everybody.

Make it right; make it different; MAKE IT LAST. On October 25th at the Hotel Ca ‘Sagredo, we will reflect on sustainability in fashion and on the opportunities offered by top craftsmanship, for a new rebirth of Venice

Veneziadavivere, the Management department of the Ca ‘Foscari University and the Hotel Ca’ Sagredo are organising a day of study on the themes of Venice, high craftsmanship and ethical fashion.

The restoration of the Gran Caffè Quadri in Piazza San Marco; the Homo Faber on the island of San Giorgio, a recent exhibition dedicated to the high European craftsmanship and the second appointment with the Green Carpet Fashion Awards, which closed the Fashion Week in Milan, show the importance of the Venetian craftsmen and the great value of their materials. An outstanding support to the Made in Italy.

Make it right, make it different, make it last. The world institutions for the safeguard of the planet are asking the world of fashion to transform the perception of the product to counterbalance the ‘fast’ fashion and to work towards a zero waste; craftsmanship and tailoring is the way forward.

Handmade clothes and accessories guarantee the quality of the products, standing out from homogenisation, they tell the story of the territory, and they tell the culture and the background of the high Italian craftsmanship and promote a conscious and sustainable use.

Venice Fashion Week wants to sensitize the public to the beautiful creations that only the skilful hand making and the right passion are able to produce and it intends to launch a positive message for the new generations working with dedication in creative and craft work.
