About Awards

On the occasion of Pitti Uomo 82, from 19 to 22 June 2012, Polimoda presented in Villa Favard the second edition of POLIMODATALENT, a creative workshop and springboard for the top talents emerging from Polimoda. The project is designed not only to offer the students visibility, but also to guide and assist them in their professional careers. In the wake of the success of the first POLIMODATALENT ,Villa Favard provided the backdrop to the “Shoe Technology” installation, The Emilian Gianluca Tamburini with Conspiracy, a brand recently selected as one of the best women’s accessory proposals for the new edition of Who Is On Next?, the project of fashion-scouting for young talents of “Made in Italy” fashion conceived and developed by Altaroma and Pitti Immagine in collaboration with Vogue Italia.

Gianluca Tamburini, born in Emilia in 1977, specialised in 2006 with a Master in Fashion Marketing Communication, followed by a private footwear course at Polimoda. His passion for experimentation led him to create his first collection of jewels to be worn on the feet. 2011 saw the launch of his brand Conspiracy, a completely Made in Italy range of footwear showcasing authentic architectual constructions that encapsulate a dual soul of aesthetics and technology.Evolution, transformation, diversification: these are the three buzzwords to define the philosophy of Conspiracy, which presents its molecular essence made up of an array of particles exploded and recomposed in materials such as aluminum, titanium and silver, in vegetable, biological and phytomorphic shapes and dense, fluid and luminous volumes. All possible forms of angularity being eliminated, in Conspiracy matter discovers a dimension moulded to the contours of the woman’s foot. Precious embroideries and gems embellishing the uppers, along with settings and engravings, enhance all the creations with an original sculptural consistency.

He moved his first steps in the commercial areas of leading companies (editorial and industrial design). After the Master degree in Fashion Marketing Communication and special events organization at Polimoda, he worked in the press office of Ermanno Scervino. After this cooperation created his own fashion project, Conspiracy, with the aim of designing “sandal shaped jewels.” In 2012, Gianluca Tamburini is one of the winners of the 8th edition of “Who is on Next?“, the contest for young fashion designers, created and developed by AltaRoma.
