Labric Talent is an incubator for emerging designers created by Zhang Liling. The Chinese fashion designer, once garduated at Istituto Marangoni, has imagined and developed an ambitious project. The format was presented for the first time during the September edition of the Milan Fashion Week.

20 of the most talented emerging and visionaries designers, in fact, have been selected to present their collections during the event. The purpose of Labric, in fact, is to give space and voice to the new brand, which often do not receive the right visibility.

The idea is to create an international community of fashion professionals. A great family that helps new brands to emerge, providing them with the necessary support.

I have personally selected ten, who will present us a preview of their collections.
