Applications for the China-Italy Youth Future Fashion Design Competition are officially open to global designers and artists from China and Italy under 45 years old from July 8 to Sept. 6.

On the theme of "Tech for Fashion," the competition is aimed at discovering talented and creative designers, building an international platform for design exchanges, and promoting the development of global fashion innovation.

Participants can sign up and submit their entries in line with the theme under three categories — fashion design, fashion technology and fashion lifestyle — through the competition's official website. 

The top prize winners in each category will receive 120,000 yuan ($18,490) and the opportunity to present their works during 2022 Milan Design Week.

The final results will be announced at the World Textile Merchandising Conference to be held in the city of Shaoxing, Zhejiang province, in October.

Fu Zhiyong, deputy director of the China-Italy Design Innovation Hub and associate professor at Tsinghua University's Academy of Arts and Design, said that via the integration of art and technology, the competition will provide an international fashion innovation platform to explore fashion trends.

Co-hosted by Tsinghua University, the Polytechnic University of Milan, and the people's government of Keqiao district of Shaoxing city, the competition is an important event in the "China-Italy Year of Youth Innovation and Entrepreneurship," launched last year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
