On Wednesday, July 22 the Isko I-Skool Award winners were announced during a physical event in the presence of international denim experts, top personalities from the fashion world and the authoritative network of first-class partners of the project.
This year, Isko I-Skool welcomed students from the most prestigious fashion schools worldwide and young professionals at the early stage of their career, challenging them to use their imagination to create the denim of tomorrow according to a fully responsible creative theme.
The twenty shortlisted finalists were asked to dig into their roots and to approach different cultures, defining and tracking down the geography of the world connecting them through responsibility. In addition to exploring the planet both locally and globally, they were also required to take into account the product life cycle of their outfits, featuring 5-pocket jeans to interpret their view on the “local” concept and two denim showpieces to reflect their worldwide influences and topics of interest. These were made with top Isko denim fabrics, meeting the designers’ needs and providing a strong sustainable ingredient.
