1 YEAR ABOARD THE GHOST BUS / FROM NOTTINGHAM TO TUSCANY: A STORY FROM THE LAST ISSUE OF “BEESTONIAN” MAG

THE BEESTONIAN magazine - December 2015

From the last issue of THE BEESTONIAN magazine (December 2015): story by Christopher Frost about “The Ghost Bus” project, from Nottingham (UK) to Tuscany (Italy).

TUSCANY (ITALY) / THE OFFICIAL LAUNCH OF THE “PRINCESS” E-BOOK: ART, FASHION AND A SPECIAL LABEL FOR A “VOLCANIC WINE”

 

 

The magical Volcano Dress and “The Princess, the Fire and the Castle” project has sparked the interest in Tuscany and in Mount Amiata. On last Sunday, December 20, at the Teatro Comunale in Piancastagnaio (Siena) there was the presentation of the fairy tale that Roberto Alborghetti and Yarden Mitrani created around the high fashion dress dedicated to Volcano Amiata (the design of the outfit was made on the basis of an abstract photo that Roberto Alborghetti took from an old and rusty bus at Bartons Plc, in Nottingham UK).

The special event consisted in the presentation of a short film, in a public reading by the actress Mirelda Morini and in the official launch of “The Princess, the Fire and the Castle” e-book, available in online bookstores (at only 0.99 Euros). Mirelda Morini, with her performance, was able to give depth and color to the story that – punctuated by original music by Eylon Malhi – revolves around the peculiarities of design and its cut dress Volcano, which has indeed inspired the tale. But the bright colors of the dress were not limited to suggest a story and a television documentary, but also an original label for bottles of fine wine produced by Azienda Agricola Pinzi Pinzuti (Abbadia S. Salvatore, Tuscany). Was produced a symbolic image that clearly expresses the characteristics of the “volcanic wine” (the vines grow in lava rock from the extint Volcano Amiata). Also during the event, which received a great attention from the public, it was presented an accessory for the Volcano Dress: a surprising “purse” created with the fingers by “Knitta” that promotes innovative forms of artistic craftsmanship.

The project has also strongly affected the students of the course for designers at Avogadro Institute in Abbadia San Salvatore. At the Teatro Comunale, about 200 pupils also attended the public reading of the fairy tale and the vision of the short film.

“The Princess, the Fire and the Castle” e-book is available in online bookstores:

Lucia Boggia  personally selected the printing fabrics  which very soon will be on sell across the world. Starting from the great achievement reached with the Volcano Dress (Yarden created an high fashion outfit basing on the design of one of the abstract photos Roberto took from the Ghost Bus, at Bartons Plc in Nottingham) Mitrani and Alborghetti has now developed an amazing series of printing fabrics always based on the abstract photos about decomposed matters.

Yarden and Roberto have created a great series – an explosion of colors bringing new trends in fashion – and the same Boggia Studio was amazed and impressed by the prints layout that are ready to be used on different textiles and for different outfits. As Lucia Boggia said “no painter or pc can create this kind of printing fabrics”.

Roberto already collaborated with Boggia Studio in the creation of the three silk scarves with the design from torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial matters. Bruno Boggia Studio (Como, Italy) for over sixty years has been working in textile designs with the most famous fashion brands in the world: Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine,  Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, Rolando Santana
