NABA takes part to NEXT GENERATION FASHION TALENT, the creative support programme launched by storied footwear brand Scholl iconic this Spring, with a design competition to promote young talent within some of Italy’s best fashion schools.
NABA Fashion Area students were briefed to design three to five shoes for Scholl’s most elevated line, iconic with its signature model, the Pescura. The winner will see his or her capsule collection produced and commercialised for Scholl iconic’s network of global high-end fashion retailers for the AW22 season. Aimed at supporting and encouraging creative talent in Italy, where Scholl iconic is also headquartered, the winner will additionally be offered an internship working with the Scholl design team.
The competition was briefed to NABA’s and some of Italy’s best fashion schools’ students in April this year, the selection starts in mid-June when three students will be shortlisted to have their collection prototyped. The final winner will be chosen on July 29th, 2021.
