Emerging Designers

Emerging Designers: Sponsoring emerging designers is part of our multicultural mission here at FLY. We showcase various emerging designers throughout the year. Being that Florence is a fashion capital known for it's high quality manufacturing and textiles, we are always on the look out for up and coming, local talent. This season we are showcasing pieces from Marakita.

New Kid

Our current emerging designer is New Kid. The brand emerged in 2009 and is based in Florence, Italy—with each of their products handcrafted in Tuscany. New Kid uses only local and hand dyed materials to design and produce products such as footwear, apparel, and various accessories that appeal to a “wild sense of the world.” The designers generate products that reveal a new twist on vintage classics through exotic textiles, the colors of the Italian sunset, and a subtle love of popculture. These products are made for the unique client who appreciates a bit of nostalgia, but does not shy from cool, urban flair.

On Tuesday, July 31st at 6 pm, FAST will host a promotional event for New Kid at FLY, located in Borgo Pinti 20r in the historical center of Florence. This exciting event will showcase New Kid designs, with an emphasis on New Kid’s 2018 Winter collection. Looks are to include luxurious velvets, smart boots, functional totes, and timeless pieces for transitional seasons. The designers will be present at the event to mingle and elaborate upon their vision for New Kid. The event will include enjoyable music; a gourmet Apertivo produced by students of À la Carte Cuisine, a culinary course at FUA; and an array of the finest vini.
