Fatto a Mano for the Future

| August 19, 2011 | Parties

FENDI introduced a series of two separate unique design projects with local artists, Eli Baxter and Aaron Padilla to launch FENDI'S design-focused Fatto a Mano for the Future (handmade for the future) platform in Hawaii. Fatto a Mano for the Future combines old world artisanship and modern day techniques through the collaboration, support and perpetuation of emerging contemporary artists. Hawaii artists Eli Baxter and Aaron Padilla were selected competitively among a pool of talented University of Hawaii alumni and graduate students of Art. Baxter and Padilla will work intimately with FENDI's Roman Craftsman on site at respective boutique locations to build, cut, assemble, sew, and create contemporary design pieces that fuse each artist's signature craft and FENDI's Italian sensibilities and materials.
