ISKO announces fourth edition of ISKO I-SKOOL
Feb '17
ISKO, world leader in denim manufacturing and part of the SANKO holding, has announced the fourth edition of ISKO I-SKOOL, the out-of-the-box educational project involving some of the most important schools on an international level, a talent award for students of design and marketing, along with Creative Room, its Italian style and design think-thank.

The competition will confirm for the fourth year in a row its global potential in the education and specialisation of young talents, again with its two main application fields: on one hand the Denim Design Award, launching now and dedicated to fashion students, and on the other the Denim Marketing Award, organised for marketing students.

The most talented students on a global scale will have the outstanding opportunity to access the one-of-a-kind fashion network and professional expertise made available by the ISKO I-SKOOL project, with the possibility to be awarded with prestigious internships and mentions within the industry and beyond.

ISKO I-SKOOLTM has piqued the invaluable support of many key players of the denim value chain. Archroma and Lenzing will be the Gold partners of the current edition and will give their contribution to the project together with the Silver Partners Itema and Reca Group and the supporting partners haikure, Swarovski, Replay, Jacob Cohen, Liu Jo, 7 For All Mankind, Capsule, Betabrand, ISKOTECATM, C&S, Tonello and Menabò Group.

The novelty of this year is the involvement of Independent design Students, that had the possibility to apply for the Denim Design Award directly from the official website of the competition (www.iskooldenim.com/join).

At the award function, young designers will be asked to design one outfit for each of the two different creative directions choosing the season they prefer. The first type is from unisex to multisex where the challenge calls for the creation of garments that are perfectly suitable for both contemporary men and women in order to create a new gender category, multisex, to include all the multitudinous set of identities that are drawing the new face of modern society.

The second season type is identifying beyond gender: the globalised spirit of the world allows designers to transcend stereotypical boundaries of race, nationality, class, or age. For this reason, competitors will conceive outfits that are able to create a totally new imagine of themselves, a reflection of the flexibility of the traditional cultural and biological boundaries.
