Polimoda and Lineapelle sign agreement for Research Hub

Polimoda has signed a framework agreement with Lineapelle, trade fair
organizer dedicated to leather, accessories, components, synthetics and
models for footwear, leather goods, garments and furniture, for the
creation of a Research hub at Polimoda’s Scandicci headquarters, which
houses the manufacturers of big fashion brands.

To analyze the impact of the current health crisis on the sector, the
possible response and the role of training future fashion professionals,
Polimoda and Lineapelle highlighted the need to rethink the models of the
fashion system, instead favoring research, innovation and intergenerational
collaboration.

The Florentine school intends to set up a research centre at the
Scandicci campus for leather goods and develop initiatives aimed at its
promotion to support the sectors of accessories, footwear and metals
through the search for trends, design, product and brand.

“The creation of a Research Hub on leather will be a great added value
for fashion students, enhancing the excellence of our territory and
becoming a valuable resource for companies,” says Polimoda President
Ferruccio Ferragamo. “Thanks to the collaboration with Lineapelle, we can
combine the best knowledge on the sector with its future development.”
