Giulia Grigolon is a graduate from Kingston school of Art with specialisation Menswear Knitwear. As a designer, she strongly believes in the use of garments and objects as the tools to create new exciting narratives and realities and she is keen in experimenting with colours to create collections with an eclectic style. Her previous studies in tailoring and pattern cutting in Rome have influenced her aesthetic and her interest for tailoring techniques . Her current work experience as Outerwear Design Intern at Hugo Boss and the previous one at Antonio Grimaldi enhanced her Proficiency in researching and creating new visual concepts to translate into garments.
During her final year G. got selected for Feel The Yarn 2018 at Pitti Filati, a great project which pairs some of the best sustainable yarn suppliers in Italy with 20 selected students from all around the world. She got the opportunity of being sponsored by such a great company as Zegna Baruffa which supplied all of the yarns for her project, The Golden Age. The Golden Age attempts to create a bridge between childhood and adulthood by collaging memories which are translated into colours and shapes throughout the garments. This project tries to give relevance to ageing, not seen under a negative light anymore - often considered as the decadence of our bodies - but the achievement of a 'golden age'. Our memories are worth being collected and celebrated in a triumph of colours and shapes. In terms of fitting, G. looked at kidswear - particularly focusing her research on borrowed clothing and how to style garments which are too big or too short.
