Second meeting of ART-CHERIE Project In Prato, Italy

On 4-5 July in Prato, the second technical meeting of European Project Art Cherie (Achieving and ReTrieving Creativity through European Fashion Cultural HERitage Inspiration) co-funded by the Erasmus Plus European Programme took place.

The aim of the project is to enhance European fashion cultural huge and impressive heritage as a source of inspiration for fashion designers.

The five project partners gathered 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, was dedicated to an in-depth analysis of the collections and archives which will lead to the development of the training material.

The selected works from the Museum heritage will then be digitised and made available for the creation of an innovative knowledge pathway in which European textile and fashion cultural heritage becomes a creative and professional tool as well as an inspiring incentive for the design, providing elements able to increase the added value of future collections.
