Over three days we explored the Fashion Hub, Who’s Next, showcases, talks, and of course, collections presented on the ALTAROMA runway alongside stylists, and press, visitors included international buyers from cutting-edge multi-brand boutiques. Marking Altaroma not just as a place to be to capture Roma’s latest trends, but the fashion week has made great strides to show its strong status as an industry foundation. Proving once again that Rome continues to be the place for fashion.

Craftsmanship, exploring gender codes alongside gendered, and sustainable innovation once again on the forefront with highlights including menswear collections by MOKOO, a selection of up-and-coming designers making up the series Rome is My Runway, future talents making their debut from Roma University of Fine Arts, and the prestigious competition followed by an award ceremony for Roma Young Talents. Among a wide range of trends and aesthetics, there was a strong focus on textiles and new energy.
