The “el Botón”-MANGO Fashion Awards offer young designers throughout the world the opportunity to participate in an international Fashion Design competition. The competition, which takes place every 18 months, has the support of five of the most important Fashion Design Schools in Europe. The aim of this event is to give young fashion designers access to a new media platform, as well as the opportunity to market their collections.
The Spanish firm Mango launched the second edition of the “el Botón”-MANGO Fashion Awards, an event which aims to promote and increase the international projection of up-and-coming designers. The candidates will have the opportunity to present their collections before a prestigious jury and opt for a prize of 300,000 euros, the largest sum offered to date in a competition of this nature.
The five Fashion Design Schools acting as co-organizers are: Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design (London); Escola Superior de Disseny, ESDi (Barcelona); Institut Français de la Mode (Paris); Istituto Marangoni (Milan-Paris-London); and Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten van Antwerpen (The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp). These schools will form part of the First Jury, which will shortlist the 10 finalists out of the 50 candidates previously selected by the MANGO Committee.
