CRITERIA

Crisden the fashion luxury accessories and artefact company who create for the top Italian and French fashion houses and brands are generously supporting this new global initiative.

1 - Fashion Product Design Innovation

2 - Innovative Concept

3 - Innovation in Materials & Embellishment for Fashion.

Fashion Accessories and Artefacts create more revenue for the fashion industry than garments. The development of new products are naturally in high demand. It can appear strange that shoes are considered simply an ‘accessory’ – as a complete fashion look requires the correct shoes, they are not optional. The purpose of the exhibition is to highlight this important area and promote to the institutes and graduates that contribute to the research and development of not only shoes and bags, but the wider perspective of this exciting area of international fashion.

The GFW 2019 jury will identify three winners each to receive awards from Crisden in the following areas of Innovation:

Fashion Product Design

Concept

Materials & Embellishment

o Fashion Product Design: Excellence in product design for the fashion industry, it can be any form of fashion product e.g. bag, belt, small leather (or non-leather) goods such as a wallet, telephone or iPad holder.

o Concept, or a fashion idea for a future product, this could be the embryo of an idea that explains the initial research behind the concept and how it will bring innovation to the industry. Simply how far can we develop a fashion product / artefact? Challenge the idea of current fashion boundaries.

o Materials that are used within fashion or the embellishment of materials or product with a new technique or approach. It could be using contemporary technology or traditional craft in a new and innovative manner.
