OPEN ART WEEK presents Fashion Breaks.

A series of ten original video clips from ten of the most innovative and groundbreaking fashion designers under 30 in Italy and Tunisia.

The series is conceived as a virtual exhibition and takes its title from the commercials shown during television programs.

The project aims to present 5 rounds of “blitz” videos, each lasting 60 to 180 seconds, launched two by two every Thursday on-air at 07:30 P.M. CET on facebook and instagram (#openartweek). The exhibition continues on youtube and the website opertaweek.com.

Fashion Breaks is curated by Gaia Toschi – director of OAW – and Duccio Bosio – coordinator of Saint Laurent Couture Institute.

The authors of the videos are the finalists of the Young Fashion Designers Mobile Video Contest 2020 – a competition launched on July 31st by OAW in collaboration with Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) and ESMOD Tunisie – selected by an international jury of artists and professionals in the fashion industry, composed of the curators and Guia Rossi (fashion & design editor of Hearst Magazines Italy); Joanna Ben Souissi (fashion producer and photographer and contributor to Vogue Arabia); Myriam Riza (radio presenter and producer for RTCI – Radio Tunis Chaîne Internationale); Farés Cheraït (fashion designer); Beppe Angiolini (honorary president of the Italian Chamber of Italian Buyers).

Fashion Breaks originated with the idea to spread and promote viewing of the most contemporary and experimental fashion ideas, shaping tomorrow’s fashion.

The exhibition came about as a timely response to the pandemic and the sharp restrictions imposed on this sector, which have greatly affected the youngest brands and designers.

The videos in the series include works by: Pietro Cavallari; Francesca Maria Ciani; Luca Cioffi; Noha Ezzine; Domenico Del Gais; Wassim Lahmar; Nesrine Makhlouf; Cristiano Naldi; Marcello Pipitone; Zicen Zhang.

Fashion Breaks is supported by the Italian Embassy in Tunis, Italian Institute of Culture in Tunis, D&B Consulting (Paris), Tunisian-Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Olimpias Group.

It is realized in collaboration with Istituto Europeo di Design (IED), ESMOD Tunisie. Special thanks to Polimoda and Convergence.
