The footwear generation of the future is the focus of the  René Caovilla and Vogue Talents new talent scouting project

The new mentorship project ‘Knowledge & Innovation: The Future Footwear Generation’ by René Caovilla and Vogue Talents is looking for the new generation of footwear designers. The initiative is open to all truly creative young people inspired by the will to get to know the values, knowledge  and secrets of a Maison that has made of quality, craftsmanship and innovation its characteristic features since 1928. The stages of scouting and recruiting young designers within this significantly important project are just the starting point for sharing and transmitting the deepest values of Caovilla exquisite footwear mastery.

The initiative is open to three different categories of designers: those who have not yet entered the market and are eager to launch their first collection; those who have their own label but have not showcased their collections more than three times and those with previous experiences in footwear design who want to launch their own label. In order to take part, please send the following information to caovillamentorship@condenast.it by 6 November 2017: a Curriculum Vitae including education details and any work experiences; a portfolio of eight footwear styles including colour and material details; clear indications of market positioning and prices.

The selected designers will have a three to six months work experience at René Caovilla, which will provide the opportunity to collaborate with the creative team, to work closely with the most renowned shoemakers in the industry and to follow all the different production stages of a collection. In addition, the selected designers will have the unique opportunity to be guided in the development of their own capsule collections, allowing them to convey their own interpretation of the fashion to the world. Last but certainly not least, the most creative designers, equipped with the necessary requirements and responding in the most appropriate way to the philosophy of the project, will have the opportunity to be part of the René Caovilla creative team and experience a completely new professional adventure.
