Fashion B.E.S.T. was created in 2009 by Cittadellarte and Michelangelo Pistoletto with Franca Sozzani, with the view to implement maestro Pistoletto’s ideas on sustainability and social responsibility in the fashion industry.
Fashion B.E.S.T. (Better Ethical Sustainable Think-Tank) is an operative laboratory dedicated to the development of sustainability in the textile sector, from raw materials to design, from production to training.
It is the result of a contamination between art assuming social responsibility and a world of fashion searching for new models of ethical, responsible and sustainable development. Fashion B.E.S.T. gathers in a platform dozens of companies producing sustainable fabrics, yarns and accessories.
“The role of Cittadellarte, as an artistic institution, is to provide spaces where to conceive, produce and experiment with fashion in coherence with the values of sustainability, regeneration, circularity and harmony that the Third Paradise represents.” Paolo Naldini, Director Cittadellarte.
