Gianluca Zumbolo and Angela Tursi for the Fashion Design category; Laura Finizio and Gaia Invernizzi for the YKK category. These are the names of the four recent IED graduates who will be showing their work on the catwalk at Milano Moda Graduate 2022, the annual fashion show promoted by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana at the opening of Milan Fashion Week Women's Collection, to support young talent. There are ten leading Italian fashion schools participating, with a total of 18 students showing their creations.

The participating students were selected by CNMI with the support of a prestigious jury that includes Beppe Angiolini (owner of Sugar shops in Arezzo and Honorary President of
Camera Italiana Moda Buyer, in charge of marketing and communications); Gianluca Cantaro (critic, fashion journalist and creative); Sara Sozzani Maino (Head of Special Projects Vogue Italia and International Brand Ambassador Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana); Veronica Trezzi (Marketing & Communications at YKK Italia); Sabine Bourgeau (Product Innovation Team Coordinator at YKK Italia).
