ISKO I-SKOOL™ 3 launched during the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair
The Copenhagen International Fashion Fair is the setting chosen to launch the third edition of ISKO I-SKOOL™, the stunning fashion talent contest conceived by ISKO™ and CREATIVE ROOM™. ISKO I-SKOOL™ will continue to support talent through its two competitions: one is dedicated to fashion design students, the Denim Design Award, and the other to marketing students, the Denim Marketing Award. ISKO™ and CREATIVE ROOM™ know that these two fields must be considered complementary for reaching consumers through effective products and communication tools.
As in the previous two editions, ISKO I-SKOOL™ has attracted the support of many authoritative players of the denim value chain. Avery Dennison RBIS, Mavi and Archroma will be the gold partners of the current edition, working with the students side by side through the design and industrialization phases. But there is more: Vogue Talents, the project conceived by the iconic international fashion magazine, will be one of the driving forces of the Denim Design jury. Plus, Vogue Talents will honor one of the shortlisted design competitors with a Special Mention.
CREATIVE ROOM™ will have, as usual, a crucial role, guiding fashion students through the industrialization phases in dedicated seminars, along with the technical partners Tonello Laundry and C&S garment maker.
Special mention goes to Avery Dennison RBIS, which will task students with designing a complete branding concept for their designs and communication.
A special mention goes also to Mavi, one of the prestigious participating brands, which will oversee the creations of the athleisure mood. Finally, the denim brand Ralph Lauren, together with the accessories and jewelry brand Swarovski and the world-renown fashion brand Replay and Haikure.
Moreover, as technical partner, ISKOTECA™ will support the Denim Design Award and the Italian communication agency Menabò Group will support the Denim Marketing Award.
