CITTADELLARTE – FONDAZIONE PISTOLETTO

Cittadellarte Fashion B.E.S.T. (Better Ethical Sustainable Think-Tank) is a
laboratory that since 2009 has been committed to the development of sustainability
in the textile sector, gathering in a platform dozens of companies producing eco-sustainable
textiles, yearns and accessories. Fashion B.E.S.T. is a platform designing and creating sustainable fashion characterized by an artistic and practical educational programme composed of residential
modules held at Cittadellarte and at partner organisations. The programme is based on
innovative and sustainable textile research, on knowledge sharing and on the exchange of cultural experiences. Fashion B.E.S.T. aims at promoting activities of contamination between art and
fashion in order to create “new imaginaries and new languages of a responsible
fashion”. Fashion B.E.S.T. was conceived for artists, designers and fashion designers, as well as
for students, who can have the educational experience of a contemporary fashion studio
committed to a socially responsible role through the practice of sustainability. 2014 marks the beginning of an important collaboration with the United Nations which started with the event “Fashion for Forest” at the Palace of Nations in Geneva, now housing a permanent artistic installation of the Third Paradise, as a seal of a long-term partnership. Cittadellarte Fashion B.E.S.T. works
with UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) on a project on the transparency and traceability of the sustainable textile supply chain.
