ART-CHERIE project will define the items of the Prato Textile Museum collections
ART-CHERIE is a way to value the fashion cultural European heritage for inspiring the (young) fashion designers.
The main objectives of the ART-CHERIE project are to [a] contribute to the protection and exploitation of fashion’s Cultural Heritage and [b] to organise and structure it in vocational training courses for the improvement of EU fashion designers working in textile and clothing (T&C) Industries, and/or young fashion designers.
Progressing in the project, on 5-6 July 2017, the five project partners will gather in the Prato Textile Museum in Italy to define and identify the items from the museum collections to be used as research and inspiration sources for the online courses for designers and professionals. The visit of the museum, the project pilot, will be dedicated to an in-depth analysis of the collections and archives which will lead to the development of the training material.
