Die Bedeutung der Personalentwicklung wächst und stellt die Schuhindustrie nicht zuletzt vor dem Hintergrund des Fachkräftemangels vor große Herausforderungen. Wie kann es gelingen, kompetente Mitarbeiter zu gewinnen, sie zu befähigen im Wandel mitzuhalten und sich den Anforderungen der Zukunft entsprechend weiter zu entwickeln?

The Fashion Award 2019” MICAM Milano, the world’s leading footwear show, will host a fashion show featuring the 25 collections shortlisted in the contest held for students from 14 countries. Two Overall Prizes and eight Special Prizes will be awarded. The 25-year-old contest is organised in partnership with Confindustria Moda this year, in addition to the traditional support of Fondazione Industrie Cotone e Lino, the trade association of Italy’s cotton and linen industries, and Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana. Lectra is the contest’s Main Sponsor. 25 collections from all over the world have been shortlisted for the 26th International Lab of Mittelmoda - The Fashion Award contest, culminating on Monday, 16 September 2019 starting at 18:00 at MICAM, the world's leading footwear show, which celebrates its 50th birthday this year. The prestigious location of MICAM was chosen under a new partnership that International Lab of Mittelmoda formed this year with Confindustria Moda, the federation of trade associations representing Italy’s textiles, fashion and accessories industries - including Assocalzaturifici, the promoter of MICAM. Confindustria Moda has begun a strategic partnership with Mittelmoda The Fashion Award under an agreement signed recently by Confindustria Moda Chair Claudio Marenzi and International Lab of Mittelmoda Chair Matteo Marzotto. The agreement states that the contest will in the future focus increasingly on students of fashion design and other essential professions in the industry which are often less visible and less appreciated, but are nonetheless essential for maintaining the quality characteristic of ”beautiful and well-made” Italian shoes. The finalists in the 26th edition of the international contest were selected in May by a panel of judges chaired by Matteo Marzotto and including experts in the field, managers of the style offices of various companies supporting the initiative and representatives of Confindustria Moda and Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana. The difficult task of analysis, research and assessment of more than 400 entries from all over the world concluded with the selection of 25 finalists representing fully 14 nations (see attached list)
