ISKO I-SKOOL DENIM AWARDS: THE WINNERS OF THE SECOND EDITION

ISKO I-SKOOL DENIM AWARDS: THE WINNERS OF THE SECOND EDITION 

Aloha dreamers,

As I announced you on my previous post, on July 1st & 2nd I participated to the final step of the second edition of Isko I-Skool denim awards, which came to its final awarding through a glamourous fashion night at Carlo e Camilla Segheria in Milan.

Students were challenged to create denim garments according to four moods: Bohemian Blue, Couture Denim, Active Jeanswear and Future Fit. CREATIVE ROOM, which led the operational part of the project, shortlisted the best work of students and invited them to their showroom in Castelfranco Veneto (Italy) to learn how to improve their denim creations.

On both days our committee, whose president was Elio Fiorucci, met at Biblioteca della Moda to examine all the final outfits and the creative process which lead the students to their creations.

All students have pushed their boundaries and experimented with laser printing, washing, sewing and applications in order to maximise the potential of our dearest (yet not so easy to work with) fabric: denim.
I found many interesting works: from beautifully washed and laser printed outfits like the one presented from Niccolò Pasqualetti (IUAV), to futuristic jeans that can become a backpack like the model presented by Nina Riedl (Esmod Munich), to couture hand painted evening dresses unlikely to be wearn but definitely impressive to see on the catwalk as fashion sometimes has to be.

Special awards were also offered by partners for

  • Swarovski contest ‘Design with crystal elements’, won by Alessandra Maffei (Istituto Marangoni)
  • –  Stroili contest ‘Bling bling denim’, won by Niccolò Pasqualetti (IUAV)
  • –  Promising Talent by Denim Première Vision, won by Nina Riedl (ESMOD Munich)
  • –  Cadica contest ‘Creative garment communication design, won by Tobia Cecchin (IUAV)
  • –  Tonello, Archroma and Lenzing contest ‘Best wash’ won by Niccolò Pasqualetti (IUAV)

A parallel contest, tutored by the communications agency Menabò Group, took place as The Denim Marketing award.

During the morning I went to “spy” the students presenting their work and I was really impressed by their presentations, especially the ones from AMFI school in Amsterdaam.

I must say it was really uplifting to watch young talents and the future stars of fashion emerging from this contest and from the results produced I am sure that Isko,  I-Skool and all their prestigious partners have achieved their goal to promote and share the unique knowledge of the denim sector as a fundamental branch  for tomorrow’s stylists.
