Istituto Marangoni has announced a new scholarship contest with creative director and accessories designer Amina Muaddi.

To participate in the contest, candidates must submit a total of three looks: two footwear designs and a bag style.

The submitted designs should ‘reflect the concepts of eclecticism and cosmopolitan sensibility while balancing luxury with sustainability and craftsmanship with the most innovative materials and technological research,’ as per a news article on the school website.

Candidates must also include a 300 word description of their creative concept. Designers may use a variety of tools to present their creations, such as digital drawings or drawings by hand or a mixed media/collage format.
