Great success this weekend for the Summer Edition of Altaroma and Vogue Italia WION 2017!
Who is on Next? the scouting project dedicated to young fashion talent has found the winners of
the 2017 edition: in charge of announcing the winner was Emanuele Farneti, editor in chief Vogue Italia and L’Uomo Vogue.
Selected from 6 finalists, the winner of the Womenswear category of the 2017 edition, is
Act n°1, brand founded by Luca Lin and Galib Gasanov, based in Reggio Emilia. Their collection was chosen
on the grounds of their “vision of a new multicultural generation that blends tradition and street culture“.
The winners of the Accessories category are ex aequo Nico Giani, bags brand based in Florence founded by Niccolò Giannini, and Andrea Mondin, luxury shoes brand founded in 2016 by eponymous designer.
The Nico Giani brand was selected for “his across-the board research encompassing art and interior design through a rigorous and functional project“.
Andrea Mondin was chosen for “the refined elegance of his designs that are inspired by the world of Haute Couture, paying a tribute to femininity“.
On the occasion of this 13th edition, the partnership between Altaroma and Tomorrow has been renewed.
