FFANY is thrilled to welcome the educational and trend team from Arsutoria School in Milan, Italy to FFANY November 30 – December 2. Stop by to learn how their technical courses and trend seminars are advancing students and professionals forward in the footwear industry.
Arsutoria’s unique trend forecasting is focused on the footwear and handbag industry and combines the technical knowledge of the Arsutoria School with the fashion expertise of the Arsutoria and Arpel Magazine.
Regularly every season Arsutoria organizes trend seminars in the most important Italian production districts: Milan, Veneto, Marche and Tuscany. These seminars are now extended to London and New York City. Information is shared on exclusive materials that Arsutoria has developed together with the best Italian suppliers of materials (leathers, synthetics, textiles) and components (soles, heels, accessories).
The Arsutoria trend area at FFANY offers an opportunity for designers to examine first hand the look and feel of materials for Spring Summer ’18 developed by Arsutoria experts following the major trends in global fashion.
Arsutoria offers a unique service to designers to be able to “Flash Back to Flash Forward” in history of both footwear and handbags and examine their inspirational historical archives of 70 years of fashion accessories. Located in Americas Hall I, booth 1707. For further information, visit Arssutoria.com and ArsTrends.com.
