This year the kermesse is inspired by the Future, imagining how will be fashion in 2030, surely more sustainable and respectful of environment and human conditions. This is the leitmotif of the capsule collections we’ll see soon on catwalk.

The 20 young designers partecipating to the fashion contest will have the possibility to win prestigious prizes offered by the GDD’s Main Partners, including us!
