The three Capsule Collections
The co-design activity carried out within the Pilot Workshops was aimed at designing a capsule collection aligned with the specific production of each company.
For Abito, the brief asked for a capsule collection of 4 outfits, both for men and women, with a particular research about materials, embroideries and printing techniques. A focus has been made on the identification of details on which to intervene with the above-mentioned techniques.
For Aleph Industrie, the brief provided for two outfits, one for men and one for women, for the concierges and two outfits, one for men and one for women, for the waiters. In this case the design action had to impact on the complexity and flexibility of the garments and on their wearability, as well as to provide a coherent image between the four uniforms, in the logic of a collection.
For Caruso, the brief focused on the creation of a womenswear capsule collection made from 8 to 12 items, in line with the market requests while oriented to a more international taste.
The September 24th event, instead, has been held at the Mayamax Hall of the Great Museum of the Maya World in Mérida and has been dedicated to the launch and presentation of the project Diseño Yucatán.
The program included a conference on "Industry 4.0 and Digitization in companies", held by Prof. Venanzio Arquilla in the presence of 300 guests from the universities involved in the project: Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán (UADY), Universidad Tecnológica Metropolitana (UTM), Universidad Modelo, Universidad Marista and Universidad Politecnica de Yucatán (UPY)
