Ynap and The Prince’s Foundation rely on students’ talent. The ecommerce group and the Welsh educational charity collaborate in the creation of a sustainable fashion luxury collection. The collection, inspired in Leonardo Da Vinci’s artworks, is called The Modern Artisan and will be launched in mid-2020.
The goal of the collaboration is to train and strengthen the textile skills of fashion design students and all profits made from the sale of the collection will be donated to The Prince’s Foundation, which finances multiple educational programs.
Six Italian students from design school Politecnico di Milano will design the collection and afterwards The Prince’s Foundation will work with six graduates from the United Kingdom on a specially designed four-month training course in luxury small batch production skills. This way, students will gain experience in fashion design and production and, at the same time, will create the pieces of the collection.
Profits made from the sale of the collection will be donated to the Prince’s Foundation to finance multiple education programs
