Polimoda Talent is Polimoda’s talent development program that selects, finances and supports young talents who wish to realise their business idea in the fashion and luxury sectors. The program is designed to fill the gap between education and work and to support students and alumni of the institute in the creation of innovative companies in the fashion and luxury industries.
Every year Polimoda launches a Call to select the best business ideas from its graduates, and then actively supports them in creating their own startup, by providing workshops, logistical support, professional advice and a grant.
Those selected to become part of the Polimoda Talent program have access to exclusive benefits, including the use of an office or a laboratory with professional equipment at Polimoda Design Lab, an economic contribution, a tutoring service aimed at enterprise development, and the promotion of their brand through Polimoda’s channels in Italy and around the world.
The winners of the first edition of Polimoda Talent are Eleonora Bruno and Veronica Stampacchia, two young entrepreneurs who both graduated from Polimoda in Fashion Design.
Hat designer of unique haute couture pieces with her brand Ely.B., Eleonora has already attracted the attention of the most important international magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and L’Officiel.
