CHARITY FASHION SHOW 2020

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.

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.

"100 DRESSES, THE COLOURS OF INDIA"

“100 dresses, the colours of India and the memory of the journey” saw on the catwalk the creations of designer Lisa Quaratesi Vincenzini followed by a charity sale to raise funds for a school in India, the Mango Tree Goa House.

Mango Tree Goa House is an institution very close to Lisa’s heart. The designer has been a trustee of the Mango Tree Goa House for over 10 years. The institution looks after schooling and health needs for the children in Goa.

Lisa produces her collections in India to support this institution and the local community.

Every year a special event is organised to sell 100 dresses of LQV’s collection to raise funds for for the trust.

Lucca’s response was above expectations. The sale of the creations raised over 3600 euros, which were sent directly to Mango Tree House.
