The 2017 edition of The Link, the talent scouting contest organized and promoted by MarediModa, is now accepting registrations. For thirteen years the contest has been aiming to identify the best talented designers in beachwear and underwear from over 100 selected European schools, and offering two winners a fast track to the world of fashion by linking the students with leading companies of both industries.
Four finalists will be selected to exhibit their collections to the public at the upcoming MarediModa, and the public will choose one winner in the beachwear and one in the underwear category. Winners will be announced in a special evening cocktail party with fashion show and ceremony award, with finalists also having the opportunity to show their collections throughout the summer edition of Mare d’Amare in Florence.
For this upcoming edition, MarediModa is selecting companies operating in beachwear, lingerie or style bureaux which wish to become partners of the initiative by offering the opportunity of an internship to the most talented finalists of Cannes 2017. Winners from previous The Link editions are now developing their own beachwear and underwear collections or working full-time in style bureaux of prestigious international companies.
