A panel of independent expert judges has selected ten FIT graduates for the shortlist of ARTSTHREAD’S Global Design Graduate Show 2021, a design showcase for emerging creatives.
The show, in collaboration with Gucci, is the second edition of this initiative and was open to all arts and design students graduating in the year 2020–21 (undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate) in any related creative discipline, located anywhere in the world. This year, 5,211 students uploaded their end of year projects and took part in the second edition, making it the biggest ever online showcase of graduating creatives worldwide.
The final participants will be selected by a public vote on the ARTSTHREAD website. Voters can choose one person from each category within four areas: fashion/accessories/textiles; digital/visual communications/film; product/architecture/interiors; and fine art/photography/craft. Voting is open through Wednesday, Oct. 13. Winners will be announced Monday, Oct. 18.
