Vogue Talents is part of Vogue Italia’s talent scouting agenda. The event takes place during Milan Fashion Week, and transforms Palazzo Morando into a presentation space for the best young emerging fashion designers of the moment. This gives the designers a unique opportunity to gain exposure to fashion press and buyers and present their unique aesthetic to the fashion crowd.

Simone Cipriani, the Head and Founder of the Ethical Fashion Initiative commented: “Vogue Talents is the best vehicle to get young designers on the international fashion scene. For the Ethical Fashion Initiative’s work in Africa with emerging designers, Vogue Italia is a formidable partner”.

Sophie Nzinga Sy, the designer of Sophie Zinga said: “I am grateful to have collaborated with EFI and to have the opportunity to present my S/S 15 collection at Vogue Talents in the presence of the fashion industry’s key protagonists. These are the types of collaborations and initiatives which will be fundamental in revolutionizing the vastly growing African fashion industry.”
