The contest award ceremony was held on 1 March within the framework of the Interfabric Exhibition Opening Ceremony in Moscow. IED was present thanks to an online connection with Giovanni Ottonello, IED Art Director and jury member, who shared his impressions about the contest:

I always wonder how a pattern is born. It’s beautiful to imagine the emotions, the ideas behind a flower, a brushstroke of color. In this contest I really saw a lot of talent and joy. Joy of life and passion.

Often those who design a dress do not put the fabric first. This is a big mistake. Understanding how a fabric falls, what its light will be or what color or pattern enhances a shape allows a dress to have personality.
