'Le Noir est une couleur' collection of Inés Vilagut, graduated in Fashion Design at IED Barcelona Escola Superior de Disseny, was awarded as the Best man collection in My Own Show sixth edition. The event, held last November 28th in Milan, is an international competition created and sponsored by the Istituto Europeo di Design and Franca Sozzani (Vogue Italia editor-in-chief).
Twenty-eight fashion students of IED Milan, Rome, Turin, Madrid, Barcelona and Sao Paulo presented their 2011 thesis projects and only three collections were selected to debut at Milano Collezioni Donna 2012. The other winners were Sante Bozzo from IED Rome, winner of the Best women collection and Vincenzo Lattanzio from IED Milan also won of the Best man collection. Francesca Lancia from IED Rome was the winner of the new category Fashion Stylist, incorporated for the second time in the competition.
Inés Vilagut collection is inspired by Alain Veinstein writter ‘Say it with Flowers’ text, writing of the 1996 Maeght Gallery exhibition 'Le Noir est une couleur'. The collection shows a reflection of the black colour, like the designer says 'My light is the movement, it appears placing a static thing over a moving human body, it multiplies itself, it forms itself, and the black colour finally became a real colour, in a concrete shape”.
