16TH ITALIAN LANGUAGE WEEK IN THE WORLD - Italian Fashion Couture Bridal Tradition and the Power of the Veil

Washington DC, October 20, 2016 – Eliciting the theme of the XVI edition of the Week of the Italian Language in the World; “Italian and creativity: brands and costumes, fashion and design”, the second event dedicated to the Italian language will be held tonight at the Embassy of Italy.

Organized by the Embassy of Italy and by the Italian Cultural Institute in Washington DC in collaboration with Italians in DC, the Georgetown College Italian Research Institute, and Le D.I.V.E., the conference will bring together Enrica Ponzellini, editor of Vogue Sposa, Max Botticelli, fashion photographer and Alison Miller, creative director of Monvieve. To enrich the evening the exhibit “Italian Fashion Couture Bridal Tradition and the Power of the Veil” will be launched and will remain on display until October 24, 2016.

The bridal veil dates back to ancient Rome, an Italian tradition which has stirred emotions for centuries and has become the symbolic accessory that best exemplifies “bridal” around the globe. Timeless yet steeped in tradition, the veil represents a wonderful window onto the world of Italian design and couture manufacturing.

Italian couture and Made in Italy will be narrated through the interpretation of this singular product, the most representative wedding accessory. Photographs and videos will show the many ‘bridal vignettes’ that a veil inspires and how this accessory lives well beyond its historic and symbolic legacy. Guests will have the opportunity to view examples of bespoke heirloom veils that will help further their understanding of what is possible under the tutelage of Italian tradition and design.

The panelists will bring their unique perspective on bridal couture and accessories through the lens of history, culture, tradition and in today’s industry.
