In the mission of spreading knowledge and innovation HERE Fashion Hub and TG3D Studio launched a high-level contest developed for all creative designers, who had the task of creating a sustainable travel wear outfit. The Fashion Digital Design Contest has come to an end and the winners have been announced.

Gianluca Minola, a Swiss freelancer designer is one of the three winners of the competency. Gianluca has a background in applied arts, as a scenery painter. Later, he decided to deepen his true passion: fashion and design, so he enrolled in a Fashion Design degree course at IED in Milan, in which in April 2021 he graduated and presented a collection of clothes and accessories titled: “Perpetuo Bisogno”.

For this contest, Gianluca developed the project named Metamorphosis which combines visual elements, shapes, and volumes extracted from Chinese and Azerbaijani cultures. As Gianluca tells, the elements of these cultures are immersed in the concept of destruction, of a garment, and the creation of hybris prices, overlapping and wrapped together poetically.

Technology and fashion are today, part of a package that comes together. For Gianluca, technology helps him with his designs conveniently and more quickly. He uses 3D designs for reducing costs and waste in his creative development.

Gianluca is continually daring himself bigger and bigger with his collections, learning new things, and preparing himself for a big future where he could make his projects known to the world.
