A PROJECT FOCUSED ON SUSTAINABILITY
Tod’s Academy continues to support young creative talents, this time partnering with Istituto Marangoni and its young designers. The aim of the project is to interpret the brands codes in a sustainable way.
Sustainability and the promotion of young talents lie at the heart of the second Tod’s Academy collaboration. 20 young designers from Istituto Marangoni, based in Milan and Florence, who excel in the advanced training in art, fashion and design, have developed a series of projects that reinterpret Tod’s codes in a green and environmentally friendly way.
To this end, internationally renowned mentors have provided their experience and knowledge to guide the young talents on this creative journey. Students have had the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the world of design and production by becoming more familiar with Tod’s and the skills of its craftsmen.
With this collaboration, Tod’s is strengthening its commitment to the younger generation, demonstrating once again, the importance of giving young talents the chance to realise concrete projects during their design path. Sustainability has long been a central element of all the initiatives developed by the company, with a view to looking to the future with respect for the environment and a strong work ethic.
Tod’s Academy is a laboratory of ideas based at the brands headquarters in the Marche region of Italy, a place where innovative concepts meet the know-how of Tod’s, and where artisans accompany and help young people develop their skills. This collaboration with Istituto Marangoni subsequently follows the previous cooperation with Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, the Academy’s first success story.
The project will be unveiled on 4th February 2022 on Tod’s digital channels.
