Each year, the IFF hosts an international fashion design competition called REMIX in collaboration with Vogue Italia and Vogue Talents – the platform dedicated to supporting young fashion talents from around the world.
Each year, the winners of REMIX see their creations featured in Vogue Italia which helps propel their careers into international acclaim. After participating in REMIX, the winners go on to achieve more greatness, therefore, presenting you with a selection of the winner’s career updates, we hope to inspire many more young designers to join IFF and enter fashion design competitions around the world.

Since graduating from Kingston University last year, ChunChen currently lives in Shanghai where she has applied for the MA fashion design course in the UK having recently received an offer from the Royal College of Art to study MA womenswear. ChunChen attributes her acceptance into CSM and LCF partially as a result from participating and winning REMIX and her connection to IFF which provided her with the reference she needed to be accepted.
