HOMI FASHION&JEWELS HARMONISES WITH MICAM AND MIPEL
On 15 and 16 September, 2019 HOMI Fashion&Jewels will play out alongside MICAM and MIPEL, the historic shows dedicated, respectively, to footwear and leather goods and that will run until 18 September. An important opportunity for international buyers and operators to intercept trends in the two worlds, during a true fashion week dedicated to the universe of the accessory.
HOMI FASHION&JEWELS SPECIAL PROJECTS
The show is enriched with two areas and special projects, which reveal the latest trends.
SPERIMENTA is the special section of the exhibition dedicated to products that stand out for their originality and unique, exclusive pieces, showcasing sixty international brands across two areas. The first is dedicated to the universe of jewellery and costume jewellery, the second to the fashion world, created in collaboration with A.I. Artisanal Intelligence. This section features brands that are niche, dynamic and smart, and operate without the weight of complex mechanisms. Brands that make subjects such as environmental sustainability and material recycling their own, with a view to a circular economy.
TUTTEPAZZEPERIBIJOUX-THE INCUBATOR is the special area that collates new trends, far from the world of certification, thanks to a range of international brands. Dedicated to trends on the fashion and fine jewellery landscape, the selection is niche, varied and distinct, and conceived by Maria Elena Capelli, a cool hunter and jewel design curator with the Tuttepazzeperibijoux.com platform. The section is a point of reference for concept stores and jewellery stores that seek unique, hand-made, high-quality, pieces that are ‘outside the box’.
A RICH PROGRAMME OF EVENTS AND FASHION SHOWS ANIMATE THE EXHIBITION
During the exhibition, a wide range of fashion shows, talks and workshops will take place, with international speakers covering increasingly contemporary themes such as sustainability or the customisation phenomenon. HOMI Fashion&Jewels becomes a privileged observatory on the world of the personal accessory.
#IAMTHEMAKER is the project that, with mini-interviews broadcast inside the event and on the main social channels, will enliven the exhibition and attempt to define the three fundamental values of HOMI Fashion&Jewels, namely uniqueness, research and experimentation. Exhibitors, buyers and employees are all invited to talk live about their exhibition experience and explain their vision of arts & crafts, both today and tomorrow.
HOMI Fashion&Jewels carves a new path in the universe of personal accessories.
From 13 to 16 September 2019 – fieramilano (Rho).
