Couture gowns of Michele Gaudiomonte will be a special highlight of the event.

Sublime materiality of his native land materialized a sensation that fashion could synthesize such apparently contrasting elements. His hands painted pieces are truly unique.
Newest segment of Fashion Frames, INTERIORS, will be promoted in the best possible way by Bongio Casa, who for 80 years are creating superbly designed items for interiors. Bongio casa is a big project, ambitious, but at same point start and arrival. A place where “good ideas became reality and they do not remain only a dream”. This is what Alessandra Bongio, third generation, brought to the company: dreams that become new projects and the new projects through an irrepressible enthusiasm, often more like a hurricane than a passion. So, Bongio casa is born to be a distinct sign in the new design.
This year’s emerging designer presented at Fashion Frames is Dejana Momcilovic. She is high profile contemporary women’s designer of Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp background. Dejana creates unique style that comes from the designers perception of exceptional hand work. This uniqueness is implemented with high quality, natural fabrics, making comfortable feel and ultra-feminine silhouette.
The entire event is held in exclusive partnership with HM Makeup Italy – professional makeup and hairstyle who will be providing our models with the best possible looks, with unique talent they’ve proven for years, working with the most demanding clients and media stations
