I’M Alumni Collections ®evolution is back
I’M Alumni Collections ®evolution, now in its third edition, is in search of the next promising designer to launch. Committed to showcasing the creativity of emerging designers, this one-of-a-kind project, powered by Istituto Marangoni, supports talented Alumni in the creation and promotion of their own brand.
The school will provide the chosen young talent with technical and logistical support, cover all expenses relating to the creation of the SS20 collection and the production of a dedicated fashion show.
The designers invited to participate in the project must be at least 18 years old, be Istituto Marangoni Alumni, never have taken part in a fashion show that is on the official calendar of a fashion week, have their own registered brand and have already created at least one collection.
By 26 March 2019, Alumni are invited to present their creative proposals for an entire Women’s collection for Spring/Summer 2020, along with their CV, portfolio and the look-book of their past work here
A committee of experts, including Istituto Marangoni’s CEO Roberto Riccio, as well as professionals from the world of fashion, will examine the projects and select the best, evaluating the quality, style, and contemporariness of the proposals, their creative flair and consistency with market trends.
The winner of I’M Alumni Collections ®evolution will have the chance to create their own collection and present it to the public with a fashion show in September 2019, during the Milano fashion week.
The success of I’M Alumni Collections ®evolution is ensured by the invaluable collaboration with partner companies, which every year support this project by offering their priceless financial, technical and professional contribution.
The protagonists of the past editions were Armando Costa in 2017, whose collection was presented in Milan, Florence, Miami, Santo Domingo and Paris, and for the 2018 edition, the British-Chinese designer Tianyi Li who, after the successful show hosted at the Palazzo Reale in Milan in the autumn, also had the opportunity to present her collection in Santo Domingo. The pieces by Tianyi Li are also available on the e-commerce website Luisaviaroma.com, one of I’M Alumni Collections ®evolution’s partners.
“For those who love fashion, being able to see their collection show in prestigious international settings is much more than a dream come true”, says Armando Costa, “It’s the beginning of an important life project”.
“The added value of attending a school like Istituto Marangoni is also expressed through unique projects like I’M Alumni Collections Revolution and the chance to immediately ‘think big’, to design a collection that expresses the designer’s creativity combined with an entrepreneurial vision”, adds Tiany Li.
