After two and a half months of support to new entrepreneurs through crowdfunding, our Fashion Ideas Tuning competition has come to an end, and we wan to uncover the two winning projects that will become reality. They are:
1,000 euro prize to the best clothing customization project: Moskito Wear
This project is born as the first anti-mosquito clothing brand design in Spain, using nanotechnology in a manufacturing process that impregnates clothes with a scentless and hypoallergenic repellent. This means the clothes drive away all types of mosquito and insects more efficiently than conventional repellents.
Their clothing line is designed especially for people who are highly sensitive to bites from mosquitos and other insects, for example children, although it is also perfect for travelers or anyone practicing outdoor sports.
1,000 euro prize to the best personal design collection: Taínos
This project seeks to give a voice to the forgotten pre-Columbian Taíno culture, unknown to many, but which has had such a great influence in the Spanish culture and language. Some Taíno words are still used in Spanish and other languages, like huracán (hurricane), canoa (canoe), barbacoa (barbecue), hamaca (hammock), macuto (backpack), cayuco (dugout canoe), piragua (pirogue), cacique (chieftain), enagua (underskirt).
With this project they will recover Taínos artwork with screen-printed clothing with their own designs inspired by Taínos paintings and petroglyphs.
Congratulations to all participants and many thanks to everyone who has supported us by spreading the word and cooperating in this competition filled with entrepreneurial spirit.
You will soon be able to get to know the winners more closely, because we are preparing interviews to find out more about their projects and how they intend to make their idea a reality.
