Charity Fashion Show

After a little more than a year since the first event, the second edition of the “Charity Fashion Show” by LQV design, a fashion house founded by Lisa Quaratesi Vincenzini, and the “Città a Matita” Association, a cultural organisation, whose president is Mrs Rugiada Salom, focused on the enhancement of excellence in the Lucca area, has arrived.

LQV design tells the story of India through fashion, becoming an instrument of support for people in difficulty, especially children.

Lisa Quaratesi Vincenzini’s creative experience for the spring/summer 2020 collection began at the end of November last year, when she travelled to India to choose fabrics and prints reminiscent of Indian traditions.

The designer has been visiting the children of the “Mango Tree Goa” periodically since 2008, contributing to their maintenance for everything they need to raise their standard of living. For the first time in twelve years, the journey has been documented by director Lavinia Andreini, of the “Polyedric Visions” Cultural Association, through images that tell of the small-scale textile production and the magic of the places that still inspire Lisa in her production.

The global pandemic situation has produced a profound crisis. It is in this context that Lisa has decided not only to help India, but also our country by creating the Made in Italy capsule collection, thanks to the collaboration with Atelier Ricci, who made the clothes, and with fabric producers in the Florence area. This year, because of Covid19, the brand decided to donate part of the proceeds from the 10 September event to the “Villaggio del Fanciullo”, an organisation that has been taking in children and young people in difficulty since 1947, contributing to their upkeep and education.

IL VILLAGGIO DEL FANCIULLO

The Villaggio del Fanciullo is a community for young people directed over time by priests. It is a work promoted by the Church of Lucca and is inspired by Christian principles. It is based on voluntary work, with the exception of the staff in charge of training and personal services.

The main activity, as is well known, is the reception of minors in situations of hardship, referred to the structure by the competent public bodies; this service is carried out under agreement and/or accreditation with the relevant bodies.
