Gucci is back as sponsor for Arts Thread's 2021 graduate event

May 4, 2021

Arts Thread said on Tuesday that Gucci is sponsoring its 2021 Global Design Graduate Show after a successful link-up for 2020’s event.

Arts Thread

The 2020 show was the first ever online showcase of international emerging artists and designers, having been created in response to the cancellation of end-of-year student exhibitions worldwide due to the pandemic.

There’s a strong fashion seam running through the Arts Thread event with Arts Thread co-founder/co-president Katie Dominy being a fashion professional and former WGSN trend forecaster.

Last year’s event included winners from categories such as womenswear, menswear, print & embroidery, knit & weave, sustainability and sports & denim. And of course, the Gucci connection further adds to its fashion appeal.

The Global Design Graduate Show 2021 is now open to all art and design students graduating in the 2020/21 academic year in any related creative discipline, located anywhere in the world. 

Students can upload their end-of-year projects on the Arts Thread platform until August 31. After that time, a team of independent judges will narrow the work down to a shortlist of creatives whose work will be displayed on the platform.

As well as the winners chosen by the jury (whose members are yet to be announced), there will be a public vote.

Last year, the event saw almost 4,500 entires with 347 higher-education institutions taking part worldwide. And 147,000 votes were cast in the public vote.
