The blend of retro-future nostalgia and a contemporary vision perfectly matched the captivating vibes of Espace Niemeyer.
Taking the fashion show to the next level, Istituto Marangoni Paris introduced an exciting digital dimension to the runway.

The aim was to provide a comprehensive view of the students’ creations and demonstrate the school’s commitment to integrating digital technology for a one-of-a-kind event.
But that’s not all! Istituto Marangoni Paris also joined forces with the renowned fragrance experts, Symrise Fine Fragrances, to bring a sensory aspect to the fashion show. Each student collaborated closely with talented perfumers to develop ten exclusive and captivating fragrances that perfectly complemented their respective collections. This collaboration marked a significant milestone for the students, as they explored the world of perfume creation, aligning with the school’s plans to launch courses in luxury cosmetics and perfume expertise starting in October.
Paolo Meroni, the Director of Istituto Marangoni Paris, emphasized the importance of fusing fashion, technology, and perfume during the show. The event was streamed in the Metaverse, offering an immersive digital experience to viewers and highlighting the school’s forward-thinking approach in preparing students for the challenges of the fashion and digital industry.
