EDIZIONI URANIA IS AN INTERDISCIPLINARY PROJECT IN WHICH FASHION, ART, DESIGN, AND MUSIC COME TOGETHER IN A NEW IMAGINARY WORLD THAT DEFIES THE CANONS AND HABITS WITH WHICH FASHION ITSELF IS CODED.

URANIA PUTS VARIOUS LEVELS THAT HAVE ALWAYS CHARACTERIZED FABIO QUARANTA’S WORK TOGETHER. HIS “EDITIONS” BASED ON RESEARCH, EXPERIMENTS, AND WORKING WITH OTHERS COMBINE MATERIALS, SIGNS, SYMBOLS, TRADITIONS, STYLES, AND SUGGESTIONS, INTERWEAVING THE ONE WITH THE OTHER TO ENGENDER DISCOURSE THAT GOES BEYOND PURER CONCEPTS OF DESIGN, SEASONALITY, AND GENDER.

IN THIS SENSE, MORE THAN A “COLLECTION”, URANIA IS A SAMPLING OF “EDITIONS”, A CONSTELLATION OF CIPHERING AND LANGUAGES THAT TAKES THE FORM OF COLLABORATION, PRESENTATION, OR FASHION SHOW CASE BY CASE AS REQUIRED. NOT ONLY THE DESIGNER, FABIO QUARANTA IS THE IMAGINER AND BUILDER OF THIS MULTILAYERED STRUCTURE, A MAP ON WHICH CLOTHING IS JUST ONE PART OF A WIDER VISION ESTABLISHED IN THE PRESENT THAT BRINGS INDUSTRY AND TAILORY, LARGE-SCALE PRODUCTION AND ONE-OF-A-KIND PIECES, FASHION DESIGN AND VISUAL ART, AUTHORSHIP AND TEAMWORK TOGETHER.
