The fifth edition of Isko I-Skool, the educational platform supporting tomorrow’s game changers, took place at Milan recently. The final awards ceremony announced the names of the winners, celebrated by experts in fashion, marketing, and communication, as well as insiders and personalities. Isko is a leader in denim production and textile innovation.

The main sponsors of the event were Lenzing Group, the international company producing high-quality fibres from renewable raw material wood with environmentally friendly and innovative technologies and Reca Group, the brand behind the designs of high fashion products such as labels, hangtags and packaging.

The denim design award and the marketing award challenged students from different important universities to explore the world of denim and imagine a responsible and positive vision of the future. On July 10 and 11, 2018, design and marketing juries came together to discuss and decide the winners of this year’s edition. Students and tutors had the chance to take part in creative workshops by 100 per cent Authentic You, focusing on soft skills development.

The marketing award jury, headed by Glenn Jones (Wednesday Agency), studied the twelve projects presented by the finalists, who were asked to complete a marketing plan for an existing consumer brand. Their challenge was to launch a responsible line of clothing and/or accessories, focusing on the ingredient brand model and creating a story of product transparency and accountability.

The best students and teams were announced on July 11, 2018 during the final awards ceremony. The winner of the UnDocumented award was Gina Paljusevic from Parsons School of Fashion and the winner of Sportswear International’s Special Mention was Amelie Sophie Amann from AMFI – Amsterdam Fashion Institute.

Twenty creative outfits walked the catwalk of the grand finale. Shoes, made of Isko denim, were exclusively provided by Peter Non. The winner of the UnDocumented award was Jaeha Im, Esmod Seoul; the winner of the best denim showpiece award was Zhuolin Cheng, Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University; winner of the certified responsible innovation award was Nikita Sugiyanti Dompig, AMFI; the winner of the alternative fibres award was Andrea Grossi, Polimoda; and the winner of the Reca Award was Nikita Sugiyanti Dompig, AMFI.

Lectra awards the winning student with a Lectra software license: 1 Kaledo Style license (Solutions for sketch design) and 1 training session at Lectra’s Milan branch. The winner of sustainable & circular design award was Lucila Nair Pieres, Istituto Marangoni.
