Prince Charles' First Fashion Line to be Unveiled in 2020 [DETAILS HERE]
Prince Charles is launching a new fashion line for The Prince's Foundation.
Following Meghan Markle's footsteps who also released her own fashion line, Prince Charles also decided to partner up with YOOX-NET-A-PORTER to create what is dubbed as "The Modern Artisan."
The project brings together students from both Italy and U.K. to create high quality and luxurious fabrics -- perfect for men and women.
The clothing line is scheduled to launch in mid-2020 and profits would be donated to "The Prince's Foundation," founded by Prince Charles himself. The foundation is committed to teaching people traditional art, skills and restoring historic sites.
The team consists of six fresh and young graduates from Politecnico di Milano, one of Italy's best design schools and six skilled British artisans.
Just like the foundation it has partnered up with, the United Kingdom recruits would have to undergo a specially designed four-month training to grant them the skill and expertise on handling all kinds of fabrics to ensure that each and every type of clothing would meet the standards of the luxury market.
While the British are learning the skills, the students from Italy would be the ones responsible for the overall design.
YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Federico Marchetti said that their project would be "designed in Italy and crafted together in the U.K."
The Prince Charles collection would have to be pleasing towards 180 countries and has to be successful, luxurious and modern.
Although Prince Charles has been named as the world's best dressed man, he has always left the fashion world to other royal family members (specifically his daughter in-laws).
Meghan Markle, for example, launched her own clothing line called "Smart Set" dedicated to unemployed women who do not have enough money to buy an entirely new office appropriate outfit.
Markle is also a wildly influential fashion icon. In fact, almost everything that she wore since her pregnancy has almost sold out.
Kate Middleton is also called a global fashion icon, as every outfit she wears become total hits -- a particular piece of clothing or accessory saw a 38 percent increases in sales whenever the Dutchess of Cambridge wears or uses it!
It is hard to believe that a man like Prince Charles, who changes clothes at least five times a day, has only started releasing his own idea and contributions towards the fashion world.
