Last week Florence hosted the Fashion Industry and the Glam Community International Conference
, the event that drew the most important journalists, bloggers and fashion curators in the first capital of Italian fashion, for the official launch of Europeana Fashion
, a huge fashion archive with 700,000 digital files coming from 19 museums and archives including the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Antwerp ModeMuseum.
The Europeana Fashion
project, coordinated by Fondazione Rinascimento Digitale, finally became a reality thanks to the European Commission co-funds and it will be accessible online from this summer with the publication of the first 100,000 digital objects. The presentation has been the right setting for two-days of discussion about fashion culture and communication.
