During Milan Fashion Week, fashion schools had two dedicated showcases in which to show off their students’ creativity, students who engaged in projects and put together menswear, womenswear, and accessories collections. Both these events were included as part of the Italian Education Hub, a series of events aimed at promoting young talents from the fashion world.
The sixth edition of Milano Fashion Graduate, supported by Camera Moda, brought the six finalists to the catwalk. They were selected by a prestigious jury chaired by Carlo Capasa, who declared the winner to be Giulia Barbieri, from the Modartech Institute. The prize consists of a monetary award from the Camera Moda Fashion Trust to support the development of her career. The Vogue Talents award went to Alberto Cornolò of the IUAV University of Venice, while YKK Italia, the main sponsor of the event, selected Lucia Grande (NABA) as the winner from amongst 11 design students from Italian fashion schools competing for the YKK Prize.
The schools which are part of the Fashion Training System Platform took part in Fashion Week through the Fashion Graduate Italia 2020 event, a digital edition where students’ work was presented in photographic lookbooks, as well as streamed in fashion films that narrated students’ creative philosophy and their collections. Amongst these schools there was also Ars Sutoria, which presented the film “A message for you”, dedicated to all those students whose passion for fashion accessories was ignited whilst attending the school.
