Designers Kotryna Adomaityte and Isabel Hambly from Nottingham Trent University, the 2 of the 9 winners of Isko I-Skool 7 Awards, were invited to showcase their winning creations at Graduate Fashion Foundation. To bring together fashion educators and industry leaders and to support their graduates to reach their full potential was always GFF’s main goal.
Now more than ever, GFF continues in its long-standing commitment to share good practice and knowledge and to inspire students to become innovators, environmental leaders, employees, and educators while promoting cultural diversity and inclusivity within an international platform very much in keeping with Isko I-Skool values and approach which resonate throughout the contest’s Denim Awards.
Kotryna, winner of the Isko I-Skool Pericolo Award by Cadica Group, impressed the audience with her wild west denim look to London at the GFF Showroom. While, Isabel Hambly, winner of the Isko I-Skool best marketable product, stole the show with her women at war outfit.
That two of Isko I-Skool 7 winners and finalists were part of this important event is proof of the significant role the contest developed and supported by Isko plays in nurturing and championing talent and creativity. This edition’s main concept was world’s citizenship, with the creative theme ‘North, East, South, West - connected by one planet’. The twenty shortlisted finalists were asked to dig into their roots and to approach different cultures, defining and tracking down the geography of the world connecting them through responsibility.
In addition to exploring the planet both locally and globally, they were also required to take into account the product life cycle of their outfits featuring a 5-pocket jeans to interpret their view on the local concept and two denim show pieces to reflect their worldwide influences and topics of interest. These were made with top Isko denim fabrics, meeting the designers’ needs and providing a strong sustainable ingredient.
“We are really proud that two of our winners made it to GFF, with which we have many values in common it marks another important step in their journey” ISKO senior executive Isko I-Skool Project Irem Orhun, said in a press release. “All of this goes to show how Isko I-Skool plays a fundamental role in providing the foundation to enter the industry more aware of your skills and capabilities.”
