Cécilia Bönström, Creative Director of Zadig & Voltaire, together with Communication Director, Carol Gerland, and Design Director, Delphine Bellaiche, have reviewed the Reflecting Zadig projects in the fashion studios of Parsons Paris.
The final selection of the winning projects took place two weeks after the five groups of students had presented various concepts inspired by the character of Zadig in the tale of French philosopher Voltaire, and by contemporary artists such as Steven Parrino, Rudolf Stingel, Christopher Wool and Alex Israel whose works are present in the private collection of Thierry Gillier, CEO of the French brand.
Following the non-apparel collective projects of window concepts for the 20th anniversary of the brand, students received rolls of fabrics offered by the company for their individual capsule collections.
