The Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana and Maison Valentino, continue to work together to create a series of appointments that will feature, from season to season, an emerging guest designer who will present their collection on the @maisonvalentino IG social platform.

In the spirit of feeding the energy that reigns among the new generation of designers, and in supporting the fashion system, Maison Valentino and Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli have decided to open the doors of their digital spaces and offer designers the opportunity to present their work and message.

An event that takes place in a bubble of shared values. Working together in a panorama of creatives where fashion is chosen as a language, where they talk about values on a journey that remains the same but narrated in different ways. Recreating and putting humanity and people back at the centre makes the system more authentic and engaging. Different entities and not just a small group of designers. Inclusion, not exclusion. Every story must be local and personal to become global.

The second appointment is scheduled during Milan Fashion Week Women’s Collection S/S 2023 in September 2022. The designers are Galib Gassanoff and Luca Lin, founders of the brand ACT N°1.

ACT N°1 is synonymous with inclusion, where craftsmanship and multicultural vibes dialogue with each other, representing a contemporary generation that looks to the future while maintaining awareness of the past, of its origins. Pierpaolo Piccioli’s choice is therefore guided by a recognition of shared values and by grounds for exchange and coming together.

For the Creative Director of Maison Valentino, fashion should be deeply personal and celebrate the individual by welcoming their diversity. A manifesto of pure diversity and inclusion. Fashion is a language through which to showcase one’s own personal story.

“ The work of Galib Gassanoff and Luca Lin is light and profound as the gaze of every young designer should be and perhaps how all ours should be. Multiculturalism, respect for diversity and celebration of the human coexist without dogmatism, without presumption in a free and courageous creativity. I believe that supporting talents capable of combining beauty with the offering of a reflection is our responsibility, as well as interesting, because fashion can do a lot and has a lot to offer, always. I sincerely hope it is the fir st of many acts.“

Pierpaolo Piccioli, Creative Director of Maison Valentino
