GENDERFUL, the new Creative Theme.

During the fourth edition of the ISKO I-SKOOL™ Denim Design Award, students will prove themselves around GENDERFUL, a celebration of the new and inclusive ways to conceive the multiplicity of models of self expression, that are now overtaking normative gender categories for a promotion of new and evolving forms of identity.

Young designers are asked to design one outfit for each of two different creative directions choosing the season they prefer:


From unisex to multisex: 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.



Identity beyond gender: the globalized spirit of the world allows us to transcend stereotypical boundaries of race, nationality, class or age. For this reason competitors will conceive outfits able to create a totally new imagine of ourselves, a reflection of the flexibility of the traditional cultural and biological boundaries.
