The competition — which saw the participation of 50,000 talents from some of the most prestigious schools in the world — was dedicated to both upcoming fashion designers and marketing students.
In particular, a jury of experts prized Anna Biotti from Venice’s IUAV with the Renovated denim icons Award — a recognition for the best reinterpretation of denim signature styles, while Aalto’s Joona Rautiainen won the Ath-leisure Award with the most-appreciated creation combing jeans and athleticwear. The Jool Award, celebrating Isko’s iconic Jool fabric made of denim and wool, was assigned to IUAV’s Ester Rigato.
Winners in the marketing division included Francesco Diomedi from Milano Fashion Institute and Amsterdam’s AMFI Travis A. Rice.
“Far from cameras, close to the industry: this is the spirit of Isko I-Skool since its first edition. Educating and cultivating new talents is at the center of our project,” said Sanko/Isko Division global marketing director Marco Lucietti. “The goal? Help students to grow by providing them with tools both in a cultural and practical perspective. This edition has been the most international ever: we are extremely proud of these students and we are grateful to all our partners for the incredibly precious collaboration. We are already ready to think about the next edition.”
