ISKO I-SKOOL™ 6 Denim Seminar: the educational phase has started

ISKO I-SKOOL™ 6 entered its educational phase, gathering finalists in Creative Room™ for the traditional Denim Seminar.


The partners of the new edition of the project were involved in a three-day event packed with workshops and activities, providing the participants with knowledge and tools to shape this year’s Creative Theme: New Denim Codes.


After the official launch at PREMIUM Berlin, back in January, this year’s edition entered its educational phase with the traditional Denim Seminar, aimed at nurturing young talents through hands-on experience of denim’s infinite potential. The contest has now revealed this year’s shortlisted finalists: out of more than 150 applications submitted, seventeen young talents have been chosen, including students from some of the most renowned schools in the world as well as young Denim Design Professionals.


Held on March 18-19 in Creative Room™, ISKO’s style and design research hub in Castelfranco Veneto (TV), the seminar was the perfect occasion to gather finalists and tutors in a three-day learning event that focused on both technical and soft skills development, featuring also practical sessions to transform designs into real garments.


Furthermore, an exclusive partner line-up was unveiled, highlighting the network of excellence that the program has developed with key players of the industry:


Gold Partner




Silver Partners


Reca Group


Riri Group


Lenzing Group


Supporting Partners


Everest Textile Technologies


The Tailor Pattern Support


ISKO’s team and partners shared their expertise through several activities which were presented to the young designers; the wide range of topics covered all aspects of denim creation, including denim history and production from field to final garment.


“As part of this collective project, one of our main goals is to pass on our knowledge to future generations. This outlook also led us to the creation of the Denim Educational Guide, a unique, comprehensive tool soon to be released and made available to the public”, claimed Rosey Cortazzi, ISKO Global Marketing Director. “We are proud to be partnering with major companies that embrace our same approach.”.
