At the ITMA 2015, from 12 to 19 November in Milan, Rieter was present with an innovative booth concept. Central element and eye-catcher was a three metre wide catwalk which ended at a huge screen.On the screen, a fashion show was running which showed the graduation work of the fashion design students of the Secoli Institute in Milan. This project gave young designers the opportunity to showcase themselves within the framework of an important textile exhibition. The interest this aroused was gratifying for all parties. The visit by lecturers of the Secoli Institute and an expert discussion were the highlights and simultaneously the conclusion of this project.Rieter is pleased with the successful ITMA appearance and will continue to promote and support young textile professionals and talents in 2016. Rieter makes extensive study material available. This includes Rikipedia, the online encyclopedia of spinning technology, as well as a textile calculator for using on the computer and smartphone. The talent search for the Award 2016 has already begun.
