Arte Moda Stile is an event by Showroom International and the Bel Esprit Showroom bringing together independent designers and artists from around the world to connect the inspiration and expression in art, fashion and design. A London evening wear and bridal designer inspired by old Hollywood film costume meets a Las Vegas artist painting the Hollywood icons of years past and today. A London artisanal designer working with organic, natural fabrics and fibers to create eco-luxury meets a Philadelphia artist photographing abandoned train lines taken over by nature. A Pennsylvania jewelry collection inspired by the mixture of colors in abstract art and landscape art, finds partners in Las Vegas abstract and landscape artists. A designer from Hungary creates exquisite jewelry from scraps of silk, reflecting the colors and elements of nature expressed in paintings and photography. Whether, subject, color, composition or technique, art, fashion and design share inspiration and expression, and each medium inspires the other. Fashion becomes art, art becomes design, and design becomes lifestyle.
The purpose of Arte Moda Stile is two-fold: to demonstrate the universal understanding of art, fashion and design. Inspiration and expression are the same human experience, not limited by country, culture or language. Arte Moda Stile also works to support the work of local artists and designers by placing them on the same stage as international brands, showing that their work is equal in quality and expression, and to demonstrate their viability both within their medium and in the commercial market.
Although Arte Moda Stile takes place in local markets, the reach is international, with the showrooms promoting the participants throughout the world. The work of talented designers and artists are presented to a global audience, crossing the different disciplines and broadening their market reach. Hosts, partners and sponsors also receive attention from international markets in fashion, art and design.
