20:00 PM - 22:00 PM


Sala La Paloma c/ del Tigre 27, 08001, Barcelona - Spain


In-person event

The Final Fashion Show “Fashioners of the World” is the leading event with which IED Barcelona Fashion Design students conclude a training cycle before commencing their journey into the professional world. A catwalk show that reflects the high level and leadership of the School in this discipline, with innovative and creative proposals characterised by a high level of execution.

On the occasion of this 20th edition, which will take place on 10 June at 8 pm, and will be held once again at the La Paloma dance hall, 25 students will showcase their final collections and will be in the running for one of the four accolades awarded by a renowned international jury: the Franca Sozzani Award for Best Fashion Collection; the Isabel Coixet Award for Best Fashion Film; the Manuel Outumuro Award for Best Shooting; and the Jordi Labanda Award for Best Fashion Illustration.

In addition, this year has seen the birth of a fifth award, focusing on the value of design as a tool for the common good: the IEDxCommons Impact Award. An award that will take into account criteria such as sustainability, good use of technology, heritage value, inclusiveness, proximity and the craftsmanship of the collections.

It will be determined by a jury composed of Ricardo Balbo, Academic Director of the IED Group; Ari Rovira, Teacher at IED and Expert in Sustainability and Business; Marina Verges, Designer of Inclusive Fashion and Journalist specialising in Fashion; and Alba Garcia, IED Barcelona alumnus and Founder of BCome.

The Scent of Design

This year, Fashioners of the World will be complemented by a sensory experience arising from the IEDxMANE co-creation programme ‘The Scent of Design’. MANE, the number one group in France and one of the world leaders in the fragrance and flavours industry, has once again partnered with IED Barcelona, enabling second-year Fashion, Transport, Product and Graphic Design students to learn how to turn fragrances into design, hand in hand with prestigious perfumers.

To this end, the “noses” from MANE who collaborated on the project, making it possible for the students to create a perfume for their design proposals, were Cristiano Canali, Véronique Nyberg and Jérôme Di Marino
