Italy present at Carifesta, the Caribbean’s major creative arts and cultural festival
At the proposal of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Italy sponsored the participation of representatives of Italy’s and the Caribbean’s fashion sector at Carifesta, the region’s major creative arts and cultural biannual festival that recently closed in Barbados.
Italy was represented by a delegation of the Confederazione Nazionale Artigianato – Federmoda, led by the National Director Antonio Franceschini, who held several workshops on the Italian fashion system, a known point of excellence at international level.
The Caribbean was represented by seven fashion designers from several Countries.
Italy’s participation at Carifesta established the first contacts in view of the possible creation of an Italian Fashion Technology Centre in the Caribbean, which could serve as a production hub at regional level.
