The Kering Award for Sustainable Fashion was launched in 2014 as part of the five-year partnership between Kering and the London College of Fashion. Each academic year, two of Kering’s luxury fashion brands set a brief for final year BA and MA students to respond to, which focuses on specific and real-life industry challenges.
The Kering Award provides students with the opportunity to gain feedback and support from a variety of industry partners, and present to some of the most influential people in sustainable luxury. The Award is open to students from all disciplines within the college, and requires students to provide innovative, creative and achievable solutions to the project brief. To date the brands involved have been Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, Brioni, Pomellato and Gucci.
We are pleased to announce the brand for The Kering Award for Sustainable Fashion 2019 is Gucci. We will be announcing the brief before Christmas.
