DENIM TALENTS TAKE SHAPE WITH I-SKOOL DESIGN AWARD
On the 1st and 2nd of July The Dream Corner will participate to the final step of a very inspiring project created by ISKO, the world leading brand of premium quality denim.
ISKO is part of the textile division of Sanko Group, which is a major investor in renewable energy and environmental protection, including hydroelectric and wind power plants.
The company is also committed to charitable initiatives through the Sani Konukoglu Charity Foundation. Each year it provides scholarships to more than 1,500 university students, supports schools and hospitals through sponsorship and funds food aid for more than 50,000 families in need. In other words: we love.
The educational project I am contributing to, is called I-SKOOL and it has involved some of the world’s top fashion schools to develop cutting-edge denim outfits choosing from one of 4 given moods (Bohemian Blue, Couture Denim, Active Jeanswear, Future Fit).
The purpose of this project is to promote and share with students the unique knowledge of the denim sector as a fundamental branch for tomorrow’s stylists.
Students have been given the opportunity to develop very creative ideas and develop them into prototypes while learning about the industrialisation process, from the cotton plantation to the fabric, so that they become aware of it as an important part of their creative process.
4 of them will be awarded an internship in Isko I-Skool partner companies.
Thank you Isko for choosing me as a trustworthy judge for this competition, I am looking forward to participate to this exciting event!
