MILAN — Leading Turkish denim mill Isko celebrated the winners of the fifth edition of its Isko I-Skool fashion competition this week in Milan, at Base venue, a former locomotive plant, with a fashion show, ceremony and party.
The competition — which saw 216 applications submitted by fashion students hailing from countries including the U.S., China, Italy and South Korea, among others — was dedicated to upcoming fashion designers and marketing students. The 20 finalists’ works were evaluated by the judging panel presided over by siblings Sarah and Carol Piron, founders of Belgium-based brand Filles a Papa.

Stella McCartney has been designing wedding looks for years for customers, friends, family — and herself for years.
And now, leveraging the success of the dress she designed for the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding reception in May, McCartney is launching, Made with Love, a bridal line including eight dresses and an ivory tuxedo, reports @natalietheodosi . “I feel very protective over the bride, because I know what it was like when I got married, and for me to do my own wedding dress. There are moments that are so personal and private, so emotional and loaded with many different issues,” McCartney told WWD in an interview in June. “I think we are really blessed to have the emotional trust with a woman. She’ll come in and feel the love that we put into everything. What she chooses can be conventional or unconventional. It’s a personal experience.” #wwdnews
