The finalists’ names of the THE LINK contest have been decreed

Great enthusiasm and participation for the 2017 edition of The Link, the talent-scouting contest organized and promoted by Maredimoda, which involves the best European schools on design for  beachwear and lingerie/corsetry. It has not been very easy for the technical jury to define the names of the finalists who  will rise to the challenge in Cannes, where they will have the opportunity  to showcase and parade their collections to MarediModa's public, on November 8 at 18:30; and this is not all. The first two designers for each category, will receive a cash prize, two of the finalists will have the opportunity to attend an internship in sector companies. The Link is more than a contest, it's a real launch pad into the fashion industry. All the finalists will be invited to participate in comON, the creativity week of the Como district. In July 2018 they will enjoy their own catwalk at Maredamare  in Florence.
