The Pitti Immagine Filati yarn exhibition was held from January 25 to 27 in Florence and presented the fashion yarns for the Spring/Summer 2002 season. There were 87 exhibitors of which 19 were non-Italian featuring globally 113 brands. This medium-sized exhibition is still fundamentally an Italian one where large firms side-by-side with small often very creative spinners show their collections and their forecasts of fashion trends.
