The TAOMODA WEEK 2021 closes which, after the success of the Gala organized at the Ancient Theater with the delivery of the Tao Awards, gave way to a series of technical meetings and shooting culminating with the showcase dedicated to the Sicilian brands selected for the TAOMODA SICILY project.
This project, a real incubator of excellence supported by the Regional Councilorship for Productive Activities – which saw the participation of the entire board of Camera Buyer Italia consisting of Claudio Betti, Beppe Angiolini, Maurizio Coltorti, Sabina Zabberoni, Giampiero and Giorgio Molteni, Stefania Capitini and the president Giacomo Santucci – focused the spotlight on a series of Made in Sicily brands that have been able to export the island’s craft traditions to the world and put them in relation, expanding their commercial network, with Italian buyers and Russians who participated in the event (also thanks to the synergy with Camera Buyer Italia, Russian Buyer Union and the Italy-China Foundation).
Here are the names of the 24 brands selected for the 2021 edition of TAOMODA SICILY, which have been able to best represent Made in Sicily, the typical craftmanship of the island and its centuries-old craft traditions:
ALEXANDRA PELLEGRINO, ASCIARI, AMELIA CASABLANCA, COCCADORO, DANIÈ MADE IN SICILY, 23è, FACTORY MELILLI, FANCS.V, FLAVIA PINELLO, GATTACCI, GIANLUCA ALIBRANDO, GIOIELLI GURRIERI, GULLO FILATI, IDDA MADE IN SICILY, LA MORANDI, LE CAMENE, LUCCHESE GIOIELLI, MOLLO TUTTO, OHOSKIN, GIULIANA DI FRANCO, SALVO PRESTI, SUAHRU, TARÌ RURAL DESIGN, TINARENA FASHION ATELIER.
All these brands were also offered the opportunity to be part of the fashion show presenting an outfit through a group show during the gala overture on 16 July. Special guest was the etoile Amilcar Moret Gonzalez who danced to the tune of Carlos Rivera’s La Regina Degli Chacchi, the soundtrack of the fashion show. A non-random choice, even that of the soundtrack, linked to the famous “Sicilian” move of the ancient game of intelligence and strategy.
“We are particularly happy to support these designers and all the brands that have been able to export, beyond the borders of the island, traditions full of charm while looking to the future – comments Agata Patrizia Saccone President of TAO Moda – TAOMODA SICILY will guarantee them to enter in contact with many international buyers. Furthermore, the brands selected for this project will be included in numerous best-shops “.
