A mixed format of digital & live sessions, featuring 27 young designers and as many yarn manufacturers
A new international competition sees 27 young designers, aged between 22 and 35, creating two knitwear looks with yarns supplied by 28 companies associated with the Consorzio Promozione Filati - CPF. The winner, who will be announced in June during the next summer edition of Pitti Filati, will get the opportunity to create a capsule collection entirely Made in Italy.

The project integrates a digital session on the dedicated Facebook group ("FTY for New Designers,” counting more than 5,000 members) with a live one. After being selected, the designers were teamed up with the yarn manufacturers. The creations will be judged on the number of "likes" collected in the private members' group, comprised of brands and retailers, style departments, spinning mills, fashion schools and students, and enthusiasts of knitwear yarns. By mid-April, the 5 finalists will be selected, and their creations will also be featured in the Feel The Yarn AW 22/23 "Fluid" magazine. Then, in a second phase, the designers will be asked to carry on with the competition during the FW 22/23 edition of Pitti Immagine Filati in June, and they will be judged by a special international jury.
