OFF THE PAGE…AND INTO THE WORLD OF FASHION: BCBF AT PITTI BIMBO

Twenty-five artists collaborate with Pitti Immagine

Twenty-five artists of the 2019 Illustrators Exhibition have been chosen by the Pitti Immagine Team for the exhibition OFF THE PAGE … AND INTO THE WORLD OF FASHION, organized within the framework of the upcoming edition of Pitti Bimbo 89 (20-22 June 2019), the international show for new trends in childrenswear.

The initiative was born four years ago from the collaboration between Bologna Children’s Book Fair and Pitti Immagine Bimbo with the aim of bringing to the world of fashion the atmosphere and the creative heritage that animate children’s books through a new dialogue with the collections proposed by the companies present at the exhibition.

In the diversity of languages, cultures, sensibilities of the worlds of publishing and fashion, lies the alchemy of this meeting, from which arise curiosity and desires for new paths, subtle plots on which to build stories, suggestions, projects.

The display of original illustrations will be flanked by a special edition of THE EXTRAORDINARY LIBRARY, the international selection of books for children and young adults organised by the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.

Entitled HERstory, this year’s exhibition collects 200 international titles for children dedicated to women.
