A new graduating class of our Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design presented their final collections this Wednesday in a very special location: the impressive new campus still unfinished that we will inaugurate next year in the 22@ district, the heart of the most creative and innovative side of Barcelona. After months of hard work, our students made their debut as designers in a great fashion show that was not missed by anyone. Family, friends, the entire LCI community, representatives of companies, agencies and media... all of them enjoyed the LCI Fashion Show 2023. The first event held on our future campus was chaired by Claude Marchand (CEO of LCI Education), Caroline Comeau (Executive Vice President of the network), Luis Diego Quiros (COO for Latin America at LCI), Alessandro Manetti (the network's Head of Europe) and Sílvia Viudas (General Director of LCI Barcelona).
Despite their differences, the 43 fashion collections showcased (32 women's, 10 men's and one genderless) were presented under the concept HÂLÔ which, inspired by the Latin etymological root of "longing", captures the vital energy and passion with which our students face a promising future. Together we embarked on an exciting journey through the inner universe and identity of each designer. "Beyond how beautiful or extravagant they look, the key is to see the collections with an open mind, to let ourselves be captivated by them and discover what sensations they awaken in us", explained the head of the Fashion area Estel Vilaseca from the backstage.
Once the fashion show was over, the awards ceremony for the 10 best collections began. The jury in charge of selecting the winners was composed by:
The award-winning students were Julia Crusells, Annabel Pulido, Marta Cebrián, Pilar Crespo, Laia Alargé, Mapi Pascual, Anna Salvador, Maria Solé, Marta Salazar and Maria Unzueta. The Blend Showroom and Towanda Models awards were also presented, whose winners will have the support of both companies in their first steps as fashion professionals. Marta Cebrián, Julia Crusells and Annabel Pulido were awarded by Blend, while Andres Moscoso won the Towanda award.
Congratulations to the 43 students who presented their collections at the LCI Fashion Show 2023 and to the teachers who accompanied them throughout the process:
Once again, our fashion show has been the result of a great collective work by the LCI community (teachers, students and staff members), as well as external companies and professionals:
Thanks and congratulations to each and every one of you for the great success of the #LCIFashionShow23!
