Swarovski will be taking part in İSKO İ-SKOOL, the education and training project for young talents, organised by Turkish denim specialist İSKO and Creative Room. After having signed partnerships with partners such as Moleskine, Lenzing and Denim by Première Vision, Isko will also collaborate with Swarovski, Austrian specialised fashion crystal component manufacturer.

As part of the İ-SKOOL project, students will be able to gain a deep understanding of the Swarovski style and the raw materials they use. The company will sponsor a special competition entitled the “Swarovski Prize”. Moreover, the Austrian brand will be a member of the international jury that will judge the creative competition. Winners will be announced July 2014 at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin. The official prizes on offer will be a 4-6 week internship in Swarovski Italia in Milan.

“We at İSKO™ believe that sharing our experience by training young talents is highly important,” declared Marco Lucietti, Marketing Director of the SANKO/İSKO division.

“We are delighted to be able to take part in this project with a company like ISKO, which, just like us, is always on the lookout for emerging talent and always one step ahead in research and innovation. Moreover, the marriage of denim and crystal is the perfect vehicle for one of our missions: to bring a little light into everyday life,” adds Claudio Marcolli Managing Director of Swarovski Professional Italia.
