C.L.A.S.S. ICON Award is an international award for visionary
creatives in the fashion world who are able to convey the
values of sustainability not only to fashion professionals, but
also to the wider public: consumers.
C.L.A.S.S. ICON was created to reward visionary designers who create their collections by combining design, innovation and responsibility and who are
able to communicate the values behind their garments authentically and
effectively to consumers. “It’s time for storymaking and storytelling to align,
otherwise it’s just greenwashing.”

C.L.A.S.S. ICON 2021 DUARTE
“DUARTE has beaten off the competition by redefining the concept of streetwear, where design and sustainability are not polar opposites but go hand in hand to create ultra-modern collections using recycled materials and zero waste. At the same time, it is youth-centric, able to interpret and convey new generation’s values. It is all about performance and flexibility, playing with proportions with both earthy and eclectic tones, military prints, and layered fabrics as well as some patchwork pieces.”
C.L.A.S.S. ICON 2020 GILBERTO CALZOLARI
“Gilberto’s philosophy and collections totally capture the ZeitGeist of responsible and contemporary fashion. His approach is truly three-dimensional bringing together design, innovation and sustainability. We named him C.L.A.S.S. ICON 2020 not only because we share the same values but also because he strives to convey them to the end consumers with a powerful and inspiring message”.
