Open Fashion Studio

Ever since 2017, Première Vision Istanbul has been collaborating with local universities to showcase rising talents through the Open Fashion Studio. This event sees four teams of students demonstrating their skill during the 3-day show, by creating a garment based on the instructions and theme given by the Première Vision team. The students have a couple of weeks prior to the show to come up with their concept, and 3 days to make it come to life.

The event is sponsored by exhibitors and local companies, who provide the students with fabrics and accessories, and the final creations are evaluated by a Première Vision member and recognised professionals from the fashion industry.
