|Missoni patchwork coat|
On Friday, I returned to the FTM to attend a talk by the Exhibition curators. Celia Joycie, the FTM head curator told us about staging the exhibition in London and about the excitement and challenges of displaying the archive items and the artworks. Alessandro Castiglioni from the MA*GA Art Museum elaborated on how the Exhibition had been adapted to transfer from MA*GA to the FTM. He also spoke passionately about the creative world that Ottavio Missoni was a part of, describing the art in the exhibition and setting it in the political and cultural context of Italy at the time. Luca Missoni again added so much to the presentations and discussions with his wonderful descriptions of his parents and his childhood memories.
This Exhibition has so much inspiration in every part of it: colour, garment design and high quality craft. Luca Missoni told us that his mother always chooses designs and colours that make her feel happy. I feel that Rosita Missoni's happiness, her whole family's passion for colour and their outstanding design talent all shine through in this exhibition. I know I will be returning again as it is wonderful to be surrounded by such amazing knitted garments and stunning knitted art! The Exhibition is on at the FTM until 4th September 2016.
