In 2014 Hackett London partnered with the major art colleges across Europe for their Spring/Summer 2014 campaign. Each student was asked to sketch, design and style a mannequin using garments from their SS14 collection with the best submissions displayed in the windows of their main stores. I was one of the two Italian fashion students chosen to design the windows of their flagship store in Via Manzoni, Milan.
