ISKO I-SKOOL™ 5 Denim Design Award


ISKO™ provides the students with a selection of its best avant-garde sustainable fabrics that applicants can explore and discover in advance consulting the “Fabrics Guide”.

All fabrics are innovative and have been made implementing responsible measures during the production process. Technologies and concepts are an essential part of giving to the denim a sustainable element that adds value to the final consumer’s experience.

Students are asked to write their own Manifesto, design one Outfit inspired by the Creative Theme and explain the reasons that led them to picking those particular fabrics. Participants are free to choose the reference season they prefer.
