Russian Fashion Council is inviting designers worldwide to apply for the international hybrid fashion event Global Talents Digital. The third Global Talents Digital issue is dedicated to sustainability. Designers of virtual and physical clothing, footwear and accessories are welcome to join as long as they are working with upcycling, recycling, ethical fashion, slow fashion, or zero waste.
Global Talents Digital will take place phygitally in the end of July. Entries are accepted till June 30, 2021, at https://globaltalents.digital.
The previous edition of Global Talents Digital took place in September and got over seven million views. 103 participants from 34 countries and areas united to explore the issue of sustainability. Designer collections, works of artists and virtual models in collaboration with non-profit organizations and technology startups were watched from 1,519 cities throughout the world.
Talking about the event, the president of Russian Fashion Council and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia Alexander Shumsky said: “The team of Russian Fashion Council will continue working on this sustainable event in Moscow, although the project will remain international. We invite designers working in sustainable fashion to apply so that they could share up-to-date sustainable practices with the world. Global Talents Digital is a long-term initiative that intends not to criticize but to tell the audience how billions of unwanted garments can be used, how to buy more reasonably, and how sustainable fashion philosophy can be extended beyond the professional eco agenda. This project is a place for artistic experiments and collaborations, and that is why we invite non-profit organizations, artists, and bloggers – the ones that have the sustainability concept at heart.”
