A new aspect of this edition, is the DESIGN PRIDE willingness to focus on the dialogue between designers, students, universities and companies, thus becoming a platform to exhibit the good side of globalization: an opportunity for creative people from all around the world to present their projects, working on the theme traditional craftsmanship enhancement of their country of origin. This virtuous cycle ends for young designers with a favorable opportunity thanks to the involvement of YOOX, who will distribute the selected products worldwide, by positively promoting local artisans’ talent. Students of the University, of design schools and academies from all around the world have a great opportunity to make their work known through an unconventional showcase trough DESIGN PRIDE and directly being funneled into the market through one of the major online sales channels.

The DESIGN PRIDE, a big celebration of creativity, is part of “5VIE art + design”, supported by the City of Milan, thanks to which the oldest area rich with history is transformed into a new district geared towards design and innovation.
