ISKO I-SKOOL Key Visual Creative Theme 2019-2020


The 7th edition of ISKO I-SKOOL™ is at the starting blocks. From January 20th to February 15th students and Young Professionals can start registering online and uploading their projects and portfolios to be shortlisted for the final phase of the international denim contest.


Online registration:


Starting: January 15th at 10.00am (UTC+1 timezone)


Closing: February 14th at 5.30pm (UTC+1 timezone)



How the registration phase works:




Each Tutor will choose 10 Portfolios from their School’s participants to be submitted to the ISKO I-SKOOL™ Team by Feb 14th 2020. 10 is the maximum number of entries allowed to each School in order to become an ISKO I-SKOOL™ Partner.





Young Professionals must register directly and submit their Portfolios online, while sending the printed hard copy to the Creative Room offices (see Rules 3.2), together with their completed and signed Entry Form and the INFORMATION ON THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA document.

They will be evaluated by the ISKO I-SKOOL™ Team (mid February 2020).



How the creative development works



The Designers are asked to develop responsible concepts following the creative direction as described in the Creative Theme: North East South West connected by one planet. Designers are asked to design a Capsule Collection made of 6 garments inspired by the Creative Theme and explain the reasons that led them to pick those particular fabrics. Participants are free to choose the reference season they prefer. The Capsule Collection is described here as a mix between 5-Pocket Jeans and Denim Show Pieces .
