Attention Crochet Annoying is the collection made by the Italian designer Ambra Castello, who reproduces pieces from the catalogue according to clients’ needs – a message against the phenomenon of overproduction. Steven Blanco, from Holland, is a brand that inserts works of art on washable garments.

In addition, here are the sustainable headdresses of Urban Rains, the Lebanese brand ATBEIRUT, the Brazilian jewelry designer Elisa Parpinelli and AASSTTIINN, an aggregator of young Iranian talents based in Tehran (with e-commerce and point of sale in the area).

The Turkish brand Bashaques will present its seventh The Truth 2 collection with a theatrical show that mixes multiple disciplines to criticize the false behaviors of the fashion system. Steven Blanco will present his Billions od faces but in the end we are all the same collection with a live painting by artist Bcy Marques.
