All roads lead to Rome: how Alta Roma fashion week works

Date: March 27, 2023 Time: 13:39:24

At first glance a low-key but highly interesting regional fashion week, Alta Roma, until a few years ago, focused on haute couture. Hence its historical name Alta, the Italian equivalent of French Haute Couture. But ever since Valentino, the week’s main flagship in the old days, started walking in Paris and taking over his headquarters on Place Vendôme, Roman fashion week has started to lose its haute couture past. . Today it is about young Italian designers with brilliant ideas and the elegant quality of Made in Italy fabrics.

In the summer, Vogue Italia presents the prestigious Who Is On Next award to aspiring couturiers as part of its framework. Last year’s winners, Setchu and Mokoo, literally showed their collections in January. Sitting front row at each show alongside the editors, Alta Roma Honorary President Silvia Venturini Fendi is proud to call Rome Fashion Week “a startup and accelerator of new brands.” An accidental and fateful coincidence: the new location of Alta Roma PratiBus in the Prati district is the same as the Roma Start Up Week.

Traditionally, the program includes three days in the Eternal City, packed with fashion shows (but without angst, a maximum of four a day, so that all the guests can enjoy the blue skies and the history of Rome) and visits to the showroom of the local designers. Showcase of the designer Roma.
