Venice: Spazio Punch – Re-visioni exhibition. At the Spazio Punch Giudecca, until April 29, the exhibition Re-visioni, shows the research work: The Project Inside Fashion, curated by Gabriele Monti, of the third year graduate students from the department of Fashion of Design and Multimedia Arts of the Universita IUAV di Venezia, Re-visioni is an exhibition that aims to give the visitor a look at the study course of the students. The title alludes to the cerebral act of watching a second time with a different focus, to capture details escaped in the first vision. The revision is intended as a central point of questioning the project that a student of fashion design faces during any workshop.

Re-visioni exhibition. The items in a study collection can be studied up close, handled virtually dismantled. This modeling works backwards starting from the existent, and, is a basic excersize for students who want to tackle the discipline of fashion design.
