Polimoda, the international centre for fashion training, has signed a framework agreement with Lineapelle for the construction of a Research Hub at the school in Scandicci.

The goal is to support the accessories, footwear and metalwork sectors by researching trends, designs, products and brands, in light of the need to rethink the fashion system’s models, favouring values related to research, innovation and intergenerational collaboration.

The project will involve equipping the Research Hub with machinery and raw materials for leather processing and finishing, the integration of specialist interventions into training courses, training services for local operators, the creation of events and moments in which to exhibit one’s work, as well as the creation of a unique material archive.
