WORKS OF ART, FASHION AND DESIGN THE NEW LIFE OF EMBROIDERY AT ABILMENTE AUTUMN
No longer just grandma’s linen, doilies and the retro images we generally associate with the word embroidery. The next edition of Abilmente Autumn, the Festival of Creativity www.abilmente.org, will showcase the most contemporary dimension of this precious traditional art. Embroidery and its most advanced forms will be one of the themes, and will feature at the Embroidery and Crochet Show in the ‘Take your time’ area, developed around the works of the artists Elisa Rossi and Ilaria Margutti, which underline the time and silence that embroidery requires, an almost therapeutic pastime to offset the frenetic rhythm of daily life.
This art is also expressed in more traditional ways thanks to the participation of the best Italian schools in the area of crochet, lace pillow, macramè, satin stitch and needle lace, among others. They also will bring their free embroidered interpretation of a ceramic tile, which will become a unique wall decoration.
The key to Abilmente’s success today and its most distinctive feature is experientiality, with the opportunity to construct your own journey through the wonderful world of DIY and discover a creative dimension and manual skills you didn’t know you had.
There will be two editions of Abilmente Autumn, on October 19th-22nd in the pavilions of Fiera Vicenza and on November 2nd-5th at Fiera di Roma. In these events there will also be a new area dedicated to Christmas, whose on-trend colour this year will be white. From decorations to the most original ideas for wrapping your presents, Abilmente will provide a comprehensive panorama of all the things you can make using the various different techniques to make this Christmas truly unique.
